THE DAY OF SURF-
Upon arrival we will dive into a quick intro and convo about surfing. Then onto the board room & suit rack where we will select the best gear for you and the current conditions.
Then we will head to the best local break that is matched for the skill level you wish to surf. A quick warm up and stretch followed by a comprehensive tutorial and safety brief.
Once in the water, you will learn to paddle efficiently, catch waves, pop up like a pro, and surf the green face of the wave.

We will surf till we can’t feel our arms anymore and our hearts are full of joy.

Hope you Join me.

Aloha &
See you out there

Aloha! My name is Micah Lahoma, local surfer and musician here in Beautiful Santa Barbara. I am 40ish, have been surfing this coast since I was a grom, and have introduced dozens of people to the majesty of our oceans gift of surf. I love watching peoples faces and hearts light up as they feel the power of their first wave propel them through the water. When I surf with you my goal is to leave you with more than just an experience; but to invite you to be a part of family that no matter where you are in the world, when you encounter another surfer, you just know, you are with family.

RINCON - (the queen of the coast) world famous wave here in our own backyard.
LEDDBETTER - one of my personal favorite places to teach because of its perfect slow and fun shape
SANDSPIT - Hardcore barrels not for the weak of heart
HOBSONS - A great long wave that is sooooo fun to surf for all levels

After reading the many glowing reviews of Micah and his surfing sessions, I obviously had to book and see what all of the rave was about! Let me tell you. This is the guy you want to go with to set up a surfing experience. My boyfriend and I are new to surfing and in the water, he was super patient with us. He gave us lots of great tips and advice to take with us so that we can continue to improve. Micah is an eclectic guy, to say the least, but he knows what he's talking about. He GENUINELY CARES ABOUT HIS STUDENTS AND LOVES TO SURF!! I've taken a lesson before with a surf school and it just wasn't as warm of an experience. It felt very "factory" like, whereas with Micah, it was definitely a personalized and unique experience. Book him if you're in Santa Barbara. You won't be disappointed.

We really enjoyed our time with Micah. We went on a day where it wasn’t the best surfing conditions, however my husband and I didn’t really care because it was such fun being around Micah. He checked out several spots to see which would be the best place to get out on the water. This was our first time ever attempting to surf! So thanks Micah for being patient with us newbies... we will be seeing him again when we come back.

Choosing Micah as our surf guide was the greatest decision I have ever made... I’m not sure what that says about my decision making skills though 🧐... He made our experience SO MUCH FUN! Even in the rain and during a pandemic outbreak we managed to have a great time! I HIGHLY SUGGEST MICAH. We will be back. My girlfriend caught her first wave today on her birthday today! Thanks again Micah!! 🌊 🏄 🌊

Micah made sure we got the most out or our sunset surf lesson. We had a blast, if you are going to surf in Santa Barbra, go with Micah.
