La Jolla, California is one of the best places in the world to learn to surf. In 1916 Duke Kahanamoku visited San Diego and amazed people with his mastery of surfing and put in motion over a century of beach culture that encapsulates La Jolla’s seven miles of coastline today. La Jolla’s geology, climate, and culture make it perfect for surfing almost all year round. Note: No Experience is required! Our experience will start by grabbing a rash guard and heading to the beach, where your board will be. Instruction begins on the land where students learn about safety, how to paddle, how to balance, pop up, and about the timing of waves as well as proper surf etiquette. Note: It's a nice 10-15 minute walk to our surf spot (Your instructors drop your boards off at the beach and bring them back to the shop.) After the land lesson, we will head into the water where I will make sure you stand up on the board and have a memorable experience. All lessons are group lessons with a maximum of 5 students per instructor. NOTE: You can keep the board and surf on your own after the lesson is over for 1 hour (You will surf in the same spot where your lesson was). La Jolla is also one of California's great ecological reserves and it's not uncommon to have dolphin swimming around. Satisfaction Guarantee: If you didn't have fun or think this is a 5 star experience contact me for a refund.
Hi I'm Chris, I've had a passion for adventure and especially the ocean since I was a little kid, growing up in Northern California to a Navy family. I followed my passion and started Everyday California, an adventure and apparel company, in 2010. I learned how to surf, scuba dive and paddle when I was young and it has been my passion to travel and experience the world's oceans. I feel very fortunate to be licensed by the City of San Diego to teach surf lessons at the best beach in Southern California. Together with myself and longtime surf instructors, Mick, Mike, Nat and Justin we will teach you the fundamentals of surfing and ocean safety on land, before heading into the water to catch some waves! We're all Red Cross certified in CPR and trained in ocean rescue and first aid by City of San Diego Lifeguards.
