What you'll do

Before every lesson I look at the surf forecast and make sure it is suitable for the group. We'll meet at the parking area, grab our gear and head out to the beach. After a quick lesson on the sand we'll get into the water and ride our first waves!

Rather than just pushing you into waves, taking pictures and saying "Bye".
We will focus on catching a variety of types of waves and giving you tricks and tips that will serve you well for surfing on your own. You'll also learn local surf culture and etiquette so that you stay on the right side of your fellow surfers.

These lessons are taught by myself or our other expert instructors. Our lessons are small groups (max 4 students per instructor), which maintains a standard of quality.

Expect to develop a foundation that will serve you well on your track to becoming a self sufficient surfer. Catch a wave, and you'll be hooked!

Other things to note:

-Please have your phone and Airbnb app handy so the group can communicate before the event

-Please plan to arrive a bit early. The group will wait no more than 15 minutes for late guests

I’ve been surfing for 13 years and spend nearly every day in the ocean. Riding a wave is one of the best feelings in the world and I love to share that feeling with other people.

Where you'll be

Will Rogers Beach is a beautiful stretch of sandy beach north of Santa Monica where the show Baywatch was filmed back in the 90s. The beach offers a long gradual sandy bottom for the waves to come in and break a bit softer than other beaches.

Rated 4.90 out of 5 from 346 reviews.

We had a great experience as beginners on this surfing lesson! The directions made it easy for parking for out-of-towners and all of the supplies needed were provided at a great value. We had a lot of fun and Quinn made it easy for us to learn the basics and helped everybody out individually, which made it extra helpful.

Great surf coaching! I feel like I finally understand what I was doing wrong. Quinn’s tips helped me a lot during the session and he has a lot of knowledge of the local spots! Will definitely surf with him again.

Quinn is a great guy and really knows what he’s talking about. Would definitely recommend to family and friends if they ever want to go surfing.

Quinn was really relaxed and showed us a lot in just two hours surfing. We learned new tricks which helped us surf a little better and managed to stand some seconds on the Bord. He also managed to take care of each one of us.
