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!

I am offering surf lessons. Learn to surf, get in shape and stay in shape! So, you want to learn how to surf? Right on! You can build confidence while getting in shape. Your lesson(s) will be fun but given in a logical format, addressing the various topics that any beginner needs to know. You will have a blast! The lesson focuses on the following: * Overcoming phobias * Safety * Pop-up exercises * Proper feet positioning * Wave reading * Safety * Balance exercises * Paddling techniques * Falling techniques * Rip tide control * Proper surf etiquette - you should respect the locals; this way, they'll give you waves, and did I mention safety? The Regenivae Surf Academy specializes in offering proven teaching methods and techniques to have the beginning student build confidence with the ocean and become comfortable in the water. Testimonials: "My son struggled with a fear of the ocean but all his friends are learning how to surf. Cary was patient, very respectful to my sons concerns, knowledgeable and just really cool. Cary adapted the first lesson for my son and focused on learning to be in control in the oceans elements so the fears my son had quickly disappeared. My son stood and actually surfed for the first time at his first lesson! Now my son is showing what he learned to his friends. Cary says this is called being "stoked". Whatever its called its done wonders for his confidence." -Irvine "Cary swam along side of me as I paddled out on a surfboard to the end of the Huntington Beach pier, (as a way to get me comfortable with the ocean and balance). Cary showed me huge, bright starfish which were amazing! I wasn't surprised that the lifeguards know him. It was peaceful yet challenging, but most of all incredibly fun. I stood and surfed day one, awesome. I'm hooked and am getting great workouts that I really enjoy. I look forward to my next lesson but not looking forward to going back to the office." - Long Beach So, let me tell you something about myself. I've been a waterman for over 30 years with exhaustive experience as a surfer and a "free diver" (no scuba tanks) with dives to 40 feet. I helped start and run the Calvary Chapel Surfing Association (CCSA) over 20 years ago and worked as a surf contest judge for numerous circuits, and I'm currently a master teacher for Surfriders Academy and the Cottonwood surf camp. I've lived and surfed in Australia for 2 years, charging over 20 feet of waves. As a Southern California Beach native, I went to HB High and Long Beach State (Computer Science major), so as a local, I've got all the local breaks (waves) dialed. I'm CPR certified too. Individual and small group instruction, with special group rates, are available. You are provided with a soft long board(s), and I can hook you up with a wet suit(s). I can also get you dialed in on what kind of board and wet suit you might want to eventually buy based on your skill and physical fitness level. This way, you will not buy something overly priced, which is common. I'm personal friends with the owners of a few local shops and can get you sweet discounts. As someone who has surfed and traveled all over the word, I am available to join you as your private surf instructor and concierge for your next vacation. We can't start until you call, so feel free to call me at any time. Last-minute lessons are welcome. We look forward to helping you in any way we can. Oh yes, pricing is based on a number of factors. Give me a call, and we'll work something out. Thank you for your time, and let's go surfing! By the way, instructors have fun teaching, and it shows. If you have fun, feel free to show it with a tip. It is not required but a real cool thing to do. Cary

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.
