I have over 20 years of surfing the west coast and various waves around the world, almost a decade of coaching experience in tennis and lacrosse, as well as holding numerous nonprofits, mentorship programs, camp counselor and volunteer positions over the years. I pours my heart into every lesson to give students a totally radical experience, nurturing growth in the water, mind, and heart. I am soon to be a father, and have more than enough patience to meet everyone's needs. I have lifeguard training and am CPR certified. On occasion when the waves are just right and students show enough potential, I will extend the lesson and surf side by with students as a bonus because I genuinely love watching and teaching people to learn to surf. Keeping my students warm is important so I use only top of the line equipment during my lessons.

Zane was awesome! It was my first time surfing ever and he made it a memorable one (in a good way) the wetsuit fit great, I was able to stand up a few times. Highly recommend!

Zane was extremely knowledgeable and set us up for success. We spent a short time going over the basics then he took us out to catch some waves and practice, and he could point out things to improve on as we learned. Ended up catching some great waves! He has the best equipment as well. Excellent!

This was my first time attempting to surf and it was a great experience! Zane is a great instructor. I was in my head a bit and he really helped me relax and enjoy the experience. I was able to catch a few waves and stand up a cpl of times thanks to his instructions. I plan on doing more lessons with him because I can’t wait to get better and I know I will working with him. Great cpl of hours, great conversation and expertise from Zane! 10/10 recommend!
