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. We will conclude the experience after 60+ mins in water

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.

my surf lesson with Andrew was great. He had all the gear setup and ready to go, walked me through the basics, and then we spent a couple hours out in the water getting the hang of things. Couldn't ask for a better day on the water.

Andrew was really nice and very knowledgeable about surfing. He even helps after class. It was a great time and if ever I live in California again, I will definitely go see if he’s in Coronado beach, San Diego, California.

Perfect lesson for beginners! Andrew is very welcoming and makes you comfortable to try things out and ask many questions. He also takes amazing photos and videos for you if you want. Andrew was def a better instructor than someone I had at a well-known brick-and-mortar surfing school in SD.
