What you'll do

I use a few different beaches in Malibu so the beach we will be meeting on will be based on the conditions for the day you come. The beaches that I use are between the famous Malibu Pier in Southern Malibu to Zuma Beach in the Northern part of Malibu. Start to finish is 1 1/2 hours. The first 20 minutes we will consist of a beach lesson on the sand where we will go over the basics of surfing. We will go over water safety, paddling, balancing and the proper technique of surfing. Then out in the water for the rest of the time catching waves. My goal is to have you catch as many waves as possible in the time we spend together. I also almost guaranty that you will stand up and ride many waves.

Where you'll be

We will be meeting at the best surfing beaches that Malibu has to offer. Some of the beaches I use are semi private and are only accessible to a few. The beach we mostly meet at is called Malibu Surfrider Beach and is considered to be one of the best surfing beaches in the world! Surfrider Beach is known for its gentle and long point break waves that cater to whatever your experience level is, and is perfect for beginner surfers.
