What you'll do

The beautiful & vibrant coast of Coronado Beach will serve as your area to experience the sport of surfing. You will first begin by meeting me on the beach with a great attitude and the willingness to learn. I will provide a 8ft Soft Top Wavestorm and a Wetsuit that fits your body composition. We will begin in the interaction stage, where I will develop a better understanding of your previous experience, desired learning style, and go over any questions you may have before we start the learning process. We will begin by getting you fitted into a wetsuit of your choice. (10 mins) To change, you will use the public bathrooms provided at Coronado Beach. Once changed, We will then start the teaching process by going over safety hazards, proper etiquette, and formal technique on the sand. (10 mins) Once you are comfortable and understand the first stage of learning on the sand, we will then transition into the ocean. Once in the ocean, we will begin in shallow water by implementing what you learned on the sand, to live action. (20 mins -) This will include demonstrating your ability to properly paddle, gain momentum with the wave, and properly stand up. We will remain in the shallow water practicing the basic fundamentals until you are comfortable and have demonstrated that you are ready to progress into deeper waters. You can surf as long as you want!

Hey!
My name is Andrew, and I am a 23 year old surfer who has resided in San Diego for the past 3 years. I have been surfing around the world since I was a young child. Surfing has always been my passion, and I’m striving to share it with people who are excited and willing to learn my passion. Surfing for me, has always been my gateway to peace and contentment, while also serving as a physical exercise that provokes me to enhance myself mentally. I view surfing as a meditation, as I encourage the physical and mental benefits that coincide with riding waves on the greatest setting earth has to offer. I would love to get to know you, and I would love to show you my passion, as I’m confident you will enjoy the experience I have to offer. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to meeting you.

I'm mid-30s, never surfed before and Andrew's class was a great instruction. I got a ton of practice time, tips, and tricks. He customized everything to my skillset and growth. I plan on going back!

Andrew was awesome and a great teacher. If you’re intimidated about learning to surf - don’t be! He’s so friendly and encouraging. The beach is great with good waves and soft sand. Absolutely loved it!

Andrew was so nice and I could not believe I was actually able to stand up on the surfboard by the end of my lesson (I am not a great swimmer and don’t consider myself super strong). Also he took lots of pictures so I could show off to my friends! I’ll definitely be surfing in the future bc of this intro lesson!

What a great guy! We arrived and he was exactly where he told us he’d be. You couldn’t miss him with his surfer hair and extraordinary tan!!!! He started off with the basics on the sand. The INS and outs of the surfboard and how to’s. Then out to the water where he stayed out with both my kids and guided them and made sure that they were safe. Really sweet and patient guy. Great first lesson for my kids! We will for sure be back for more lessons with Andrew! Recommend for sure! Thanks Andrew!!

This was an awesome experience! Andrew was super nice and friendly, he had wetsuits and different types of boards waiting for us when he arrived. The lesson was thorough and he let us be out on the water for hours! Would definitely recommend this experience.
