What you'll do
We’ll start by deciding on the proper meeting point in Huntington Beach or surrounding area according to the current conditions (decided the night before) and once on the beach we will go over basic ocean safety before suiting up (wetsuit provided) and learning techniques on the sand for 20 min. After that we’ll jump into the water and practice in the shallows the basics of catching waves. If comfortable we’ll head to deeper water for a longer ride. I will be by your side the entire time coaching and capturing the moment on the GoPro camera (pictures included). I tailor the experience to your abilities and desires- some guests want to progressively learn the skills to advance their surfing, some may want to try for the 1st time and conquer their fears and others want a photo for instagram. I'm happy accommodate * For intermediate surfers I have a quiver of boards and a vast knowledge of where to get the best waves on the coast ( message me for inquiries on advanced surfaris). After we Surf we can talk Surf and travel and I can recomend some local food or activities to do in the area. Then I’ll put together your best photos to remember your experience
Hi I'm Nick and I’ve been surfing up and down the California coast since I was a kid and traveled the globe to chase waves the last 15 years. I’ve been teaching lessons for 7 years in Orange County through a luxury hotel to people from all over the world and know all the best beaches to safely learn or find more advanced waves. Living in Huntington beach allows for multiple beach locations to meet your skill level. My passion from surfing runs deep and I love sharing the experience with people of all ages and skill levels. Im dedicated to make sure you enjoy your surfing experience safely.

Where you'll be
Depending on current conditions and abilities, we will Surf either by the Iconic Huntington Beach pier, home to the worlds largest Surf competition or at Blackies beach by the Newport beach pier. We can observe the ocean and weather to decide the best place for us to paddle out in order to have fun, uncrowded waves! * For intermediate surfers I know the coast like the back of my hand and we'll find the best wave to suit your abilities
