About This Experience

General Information hide

It is amazing how proper instruction can accelerate your learning curve and take away some of the frustration most beginner surfers face. This semi-private surf lesson in San Diego will have you surfing in no time!

You and other participants will begin with a half hour instruction on Mission Beach learning the basics techniques and stretches before you hit the water. Once ready, you will head into the water and learn more about safety and ocean awareness including lateral currents and rip tides, paddling and positioning on the board as well as basic wave reading and knowledge. Your lesson concludes with learning to stand on the board and ride the waves. You will have plenty of time to practice the techniques and catch some waves!

After your surf lesson, you will have one hour of free equipment rental so you can continue practicing all your new moves! This is perfect for someone who wants to learn how to surf in a group setting!
