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.

Sign up and SURF with Fernando!!!! Whether it’s your first time or you’ve surfed before, Fernando will teach you something new. I loved my surfing experience! Fernando will teach you the basics and into the water… he’ll coach you and help refine your technique in every aspect of surfing. From paddling, to getting up, reading the waves to positioning your body/feet every minute you’re on the board! Sign up.. and you’ll have a great time.

Fernando couldn’t be there for the lesson instruction because something unexpected came up. I know things happen. I understand that. He had a friend help give me instruction instead. His friend was nice, encouraging and helpful, but was a bit hard to understand most of the instruction due to Brazilian accent. It just quite wasn’t what I was hoping for or expecting. So I can’t really comment/give an accurate rating on Fernando’s instruction

As someone that has never surfed before, Fernando was a great instructor! Would recommend to anyone that is interested in learning how to surf.

I definitely recommend Fernando’s surfing experience. Rodrigo was my instructor and he was awesome! Very clear lesson outside and inside the water. Rodrigo was very attentive of how I was doing, helpful and was close by at all times. This made my first surfing experience much easier. Also, he was very easy to talk to and gave me a lot of local suggestions. Thanks Rodrigo and Fernando! I had so much fun :)

Our exchange student was the one who took the lesson. Fernando showed up on time and gave great instructions. He had an extra instructor with him even with only 3 people taking the class so it felt like everyone had one on one help/instructions. He did some great GoPro action shots of our exchange student while in the water. He was very friendly and excited to teach. We would definitely book with him again.

We had a great time catching waves. Everyone in our small group was able to stand up on the long boards quickly. Thanks!
