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.

Doug did an amazing job teaching a group of teenage girls how to surf. If you know teenage girls then you know it's not easy to get them to focus especially when they are in a group. But he did!

After sessions with other instructors, Stephen got me up on my first wave. In every session with him I progress more. He's taught me how to read the waves and feel safe surfing on my own. I travel far to surf with Stephen. He is worth the time and money because he is the best at what he does. I highly recommend him!!

Glen is a very good instructor. He goes over your fears, I had of stingrays and jelly fish, and tries to mentally prepare you for a wonderful time surfing. He is very patient and takes his time to ensure your safety and a good time. He showed different ways to tackle incoming waves when paddling. I was able to stand up partially a few times and he gave some very good tips. It was a pleasure meeting Glen and learning from him.

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

We will give you on-beach instructions and warm ups/workouts for about 20 minutes. Then we will take you out into the waves and show you what's up!

I relate well to other people and always have a good time. I have been tutoring kids in school since I was young and have been teaching surfing for a long time. I love to give instruction in many different ways to find the best way to relate to you as an individual!

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.
