From running surf camps, to teaching lessons, to managing the office, our team works hard to make sure that we are able to share our passions of surfing with people young and old from all over the word. So what’s it like to work at San Diego Surf School? We asked some of our instructors to give us their experiences to show you what it’s really like to work in a place that teaches people how to surf!
Kate works in the office and the beach so she had a unique view of what it’s like to work at SDSS. She is the manager of TikTocs for SDSS. Kate likes going down to the beach to make the TikTocs because she gets to be in the sunshine and hang out with the instructors to make fun videos. In the summer she likes being able to enjoy the San Diego weather at the beach. Camps are a highlight for her because she gets to hang out with kids and teach them how to surf. Kate says that the office is chill and you get to meet some pretty cool people and dogs that stop by the shop. Another benefit of working at the office is all the good food places nearby, she’s a regular at Java Earth. You have to have good customer service skills and be able to problem solve but Kate really likes working with all the other office people during the off season.
