Private Surf Lessons

Private Surf Lessons

Born and raised in Malibu we have been setting the standard for the highest quality surf lessons in Malibu since 1991. We are the only licensed and permitted surf lesson provider in Malibu.  Positive, patient and professional our staff members are pro surfers, ocean lifeguards and educators with years of experience with helping people learn to surf or helping improve on your existing surf skills. We teach Surf PE at Pepperdine University and coach the Pepperdine University and Malibu High School Surf teams.  Catch some waves with us!

 We offer one-hour and one-and-a-half-hour private surf lessons for adults and children aged 3+. Our private surf lessons are for one to eight people, so you can surf with your family and friends. Have a larger group? We also offer group surf lessons for nine people or more.
