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

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.

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!
