Our private one on one surf lesson in Santa Barbara is the perfect introduction for beginners. A private lesson is also a great way to progress your surfing skills if you have experience. We will begin with beach safety, how to position yourself on the board, paddling, pop up techniques, and proper stance before we head into the water. The instructor will be with you throughout the lesson ensuring you’re in the right spot to paddle in with a bit of an assist from us.

Surfing is always more fun with a friend. A two-person surf lesson in Santa Barbara is great for friends, couples, or family members to create a lasting memory. Interested in learning to surf or wishing to progress your skills, this is your chance. Having a companion in the water during your surf lesson allows you to share the stoke and provides you the chance to share waves together!

The 3-4 person surf lesson is an excellent option for those traveling with a group of friends or their family. Our instructors will take turns working with each participant individually, ensuring everyone receives the proper attention while developing their techniques. Your family and friends will be cheering you on as you surf waves at Santa Barbara’s great right hand point breaks and sand bottom beach breaks.

Our surf lessons for 5+ people are catered to larger groups of friends, families, and businesses who are looking to learn to surf in Santa Barbara together. Bachelor and bachelorette parties, corporate group outings, and larger families will be able to share the joy of learning to surf together. For these larger groups, multiple instructors are available to ensure a quality surf lesson experience.
