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.

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!

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

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.

I will teach the basics of learning to surf, in a relaxed non-pressure environment, to beginners and novices. If you've ever thought about learning to surf but were intimidated, we take the fear factor out. The focus here is to have fun learning!

About

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.
