We are a family owned and operated business dedicated to providing fun, safe and unforgettable surfing lessons. We adapt our style of teaching to the ability of each student. We will go that extra mile to make your surf experience the most memorable highlight of your vacation!

This lesson joins you with other surfers. There is a maximum of 6 students per instructor. *If you have children that will be surfing that are under the age of 8, we respectfully do not offer a Group Lessons for safety reasons. We recommend a Private or Semi-Private Lesson. Remember, you will be sharing your instructor with other beginner surfers! If you are looking for more attention we recommend our Semi-Private or Private Lesson. If you look forward to surfing with other beginners and love to meet new people, this is the lesson for you!

Our Semi-Private lesson is great for couples or for kids! It may range from 2 to 12 students from your party with a private instructor! This lesson will be more individualized than our Group Lesson. It allows for more attention with your instructor and you do not share your instructor with anyone outside of your party! Remember you must have a least 2 people in your party to book a Semi-Private Lesson. Ask us about special deals for families of 10 or more!

Private Lessons
We suggest a private for those who want a more advanced lesson or complete individualized attention. We also recommend a private lesson for surfers who want to work on their skills or for those who are hesitant beginners! We definitely recommend our Private Lesson for young children!

My son and husband experienced their first surfing lesson with Sal and she was amazing. She was patient and encouraging and friendly and made them both feel comfortable. My son took to surfing easily and wanted to go back. We will definitely be back next summer to see Sal. Surfing 101 was great!!!
