Lily is a great teacher and a wonderfully warm person! My best friend and I were visiting LA and this was our first surf lesson. Lily was attentive and patient with us during the lesson and made us fall in love with the sport! She had taught us about surfing safety and was very encouraging from the beginning to end. The waves during the lesson were not ideal for learning, (gotta love mother nature) but Lily was awesome in teaching us and keeping our spirit high. We would definitely see Lily again when we visit LA!

We recently signed up for surf lessons and enjoyed our time with Nick - he's got a friendly, mellow vibe, and is passionate about surfing. Nick took us to a sweet surfing spot in Venice we've been eyeing for a while and passed on useful tips about surfing etiquette and general conditions of the Venice break. Nick was always supportive of us out in the water and gave us helpful advice on our technique. If you've been thinking about trying out surfing, you should sign up for a lesson - it's worth your investment and you'll have a good time! And if you're interested in more than one lesson check out Nick's website for surf lesson packages.

I would highly recommend booking surf lessons with Patrick. I selected his services from numerous online applicants. He seemed the most down to earth and personable and that is exactly what we got! My daughter is 18 and my son is 16. We had a private lesson with him and it was amazing! Patrick was able to give them his undivided attention unlike other classes we watched on the beach. Both children enjoyed success. Not only did he teach them to surf but he taught them about ocean safety like how to identify a rip tide and to avoid stingrays.

Collin is a true professional when it comes to surf instruction. He can teach the first timer and is experienced enough to help great surfers surf even better than ever. He works harder than any surf coach I have ever seen and I have been around the beach for forty years. You could not get a better instructor than Collin.

My husband and I had a private surf lesson with Dave nearby Santa Monica beach. We were on beginner to intermediate level and Dave was just so attentive and very precise in his instructions, that we felt like we jumped over to the next level! And it was loads of fun...!!! Thanks to him we also have one of the best surf movies as he recorded us on our GoPro at the end of the lesson. Real dream instructor!

Excellent school! I’ve never tried surfing before and honestly I was a little nervous. On my first lesson the instructor gave me a theory that was very valuable later in the water. The instructor helped and corrected my mistakes. It was very fun! In the third lesson I felt confident and caught my first wave 🌊 I definitely recommend this school!

Starting at 22, I didn't think my chances of learning and sticking with surfing were very high. Thankfully I had the best coach! Carla stuck by me, always has great instruction, and has helped me improve my life through surfing!! And I'm never looking back!

About

Welcome to the Laguna Beach Surf School! We have over 20 years of surf school experience. We have some great ocean people working with us, and all are CPR/first aid certified. Safety first, fun second, but we sure do have some surfing fun down here in the beautiful Laguna Beach! We offer private surfing lessons for all ages at $80 an hour, all year around. The surf school is a week program for kids who are seven and up, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. I provide soft surfboards and wetsuits. We meet at Laguna Surf and Sport each morning then walk down Anita Beach steps and camp out at the beautiful Wave Wall down at Thalia Street beach. On Mondays, we go over ocean safety and awareness, then surf instruction on the beach, and then we get them out in the water and help them get into waves with my crew of instructors. We break for lunch around noon and head up to local restaurants for some food, and then head back down to the beach and surf for the remainder of the day. On Friday Fun Day, I sponsor a graduation pizza party at Gina's Pizza, and each student gets a great goodie bag with stuff from our sponsors (Billabong backpack, camp T-shirt, LS&S hat, TRKY T-shirt, Electric Visuals stuff, DVS, stickers, posters, surfing DVDs, etc.), worth over $100 in value. The surf camp runs 10 weeks in the summer. Let me know if you are interested. It's priced at $450 for the week, $100 off on early registration sign-ups before June 1. I hope you enjoy your summer! Happy trails! Steven Chew LB Surf School Director

I like to share my love of the ocean with people, especially children, and I love taking students to the next level with the thrills and excitement of the open surf. Surfing is my passion and with persistence, practice, and perseverance, it could become yours too. I surf daily and have taught many students over the past years, and over those years, I have almost always managed to get my students up and riding by the second lesson. I can help any age and ability level. I am patient, easygoing, and kids love me. I am CPR and first aid-certified, and know what to do in the unlikely event of an emergency. I am offering the first 1 hour introductory lesson (surf board included) free, and after that, my rate is $25 an hour. I teach at Venice Beach, Santa Monica, and Malibu, by appointment.

About

Take professional surf lessons by a master surf instructor. I am director of instruction with the National Surf School and Instructors Association (NSSIA). I am also a world champion and 12 USA surfing champion. I have successfully instructed thousands of students, teaching both novice and advanced students. 95% or more of my first-time students can paddle out, catch a wave/white water, stand up and ride the wave in control back to the beach, on their own, within 3 hours. Most importantly, they have a greater comprehension of the ocean, their equipment and body positioning and weight adjustments. This enables them to continue learning on their own after the lesson is completed.
