What you'll do

The beautiful & vibrant coast of Pacific 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 Pacific 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.

Andrew is great! He is super communicative and professional. He taught my 9 year old how to surf and my son loved it. He even got up in his first lesson! We would definitely recommend Andrew and hope to book him again when we are back in town!

This experience was way more fun than I expected. Andrew was very attentive and understood my friend and I were beginners. He gave us the full run down before we went in the water and answered all of our questions. Surfing was a blast and we ended our night with a beautiful sunset while catching waves. This is my favorite airbnb experience ever, thanks again Andrew!

We felt comfortable with Andrew he was very patient and we could ask him everything- our waves weren‘t unfortunately beginner waves but Andrew had no impact on that of course - a very good experience!!!

Chill dude who doesn’t gate keep or act pretentious about surfing. Wants to make it accessible, understands he’s working with people who are new (aka we’re gonna eat it a lot), and wants you to enjoy the experience. Great at conveying the basics. Highly recommend if you’re looking to check off the SoCal to-do list.

Andrew was fantastic! He has a very simple way of explaining things and making you feel comfortable. We were both quite inexperienced and he was very patient and encouraging with us the whole time. It was a great time and would recommend it to anyone!
