What you'll do

We will meet at 708 Oliver Pl, in Pacific Beach in the morning or afternoon to talk about the surf conditions. Then we will walk down to the beach together. Next I will give a land lesson on the basics of surfing, we will practice different pop-up techniques so you're more comfortable in the water. Then we will go out into the water and I will help you get some waves and start surfing! Afterwards we'll carry the boards back to where we started.

My name is Fernando and I have been surfing for more than 20 years. I started way back when I was growing up in Brazil.
It's every surfer's dream to travel to California and find perfect waves. When I moved to San Diego I started teaching surf lessons and it quickly became my passion. I love teaching others to surf and love the ocean, just as I do. I'm a certified surfing instructor here in San Diego for over 8 years. Check me out online too surfing4all.

I felt very safe with Fernando. He makes a first experience feel very comfortable- he breaks down everything you need to know and gets you on the waves and in the water quickly which is so helpful for hands on learners. He is funny and encouraging and really just wonderful to spend time with.

Fernando was an excellent teacher! I was a complete beginner but was able to get the hang of things and had a blast with his help and instruction. This was so far out of my comfort zone but he was very encouraging and supportive throughout the whole lesson. I would definitely recommend this experience if you’re interested in learning from a real expert!

The guys were great, really encouraging and helpful. They were punctual and easy to contact. We were beginners so I'm not sure how surf lessons are usually perhaps a bit more preparation on land could have been useful. However learning in action really lit a fire under me to get to it. There were a ton of seaweeds but hey it's the ocean! I think that was the hardest part was getting through the weeds. Other than that lots of fun managed a few waves by the end just got to keep going.
