What you'll do

I guarentee you will stand up during your first surf lesson.

I am all about having fun and being safe. Lessons start at Pacific Surf School where we pick up a rash guard and sign your waiver. At the beach your instructor will provide wetsuit and the board. Instruction starts on the land where students learn about safety, how to balance, pop up, and about the timing of waves. After the land lesson you will head into the water with one of the certified Pacific Surf School instructors who will make sure you stand up on the board and have a great time. All lessons are group lessons with a maximum of 5 students per instructor.

I had a great time doing surf lessons here! Our instructor was very knowledgable and I even was able to get up twice. I didn’t even realise that there was a photographer taking my picture during my experience, and he got some totally awesome pictures. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something unique while in San Diego!

My boyfriend and I had a lesson with Tate, and he was wonderful! He really tried helping us and was super friendly. Wish we could’ve stayed out in the water much longer! Highly recommend.

Couldn't have had a better experience! We had a last minute emergency and had to ask for a new time for our surf lessons and we were met with understanding and flexibility! Jacqory was our instructor and was the absolute best! I definitely recommend this experience.

We had Caleb as our instructor and he was amazing! He helped us feel comfortable on the board and in the water. He was very friendly and we had an amazing time trying our best to surf, haha. Would definitely recommend!

We had our surf lesson with Caleb. He was a wonderful instructor and so encouraging! Both my husband and I were able to get up on our boards, and it was the first time surfing for both of us. It was definitely a workout, but we would recommend it 100%!
