Are you psyched to learn how to surf but tired of group lessons?
You might want to look into private surf lessons. Taking classes one-on-one with a master surfer can jump start your skills and make surfing even more fun.
We'll cover a few good reasons to take private classes in this article. Hopefully, you'll get inspired to catch some bigger waves!
Customized Lesson Plans

If you feel like group lessons are going too slow or too fast, having private surfing lessons can get you back to feeling in control.

It seems a little tricky at first, but our instructors are professional lifeguards who are used to helping people get started on their surfing adventures.
Flexible Timing and Location
One of the best things about learning how to surf is exploring different beaches.
You probably won't want to start on a really hard beach with huge waves, so private surf lessons are the way to go.
You can pick a time that works best for your schedule, between 9:30 am and 5:00 pm. Try to warm up before it's time for your lesson with some stretching and deep breathing.
Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach are both ideal locations to start surf lessons. They have calm waters and predictable waves, and they aren't too crowded.
We like to work with people who are really excited to learn how to surf. Even if you just take a few lessons, you'll be much better equipped to surf on your own.
The first 10 minutes of your lesson will focus on safety and how to "pop up" on your board. After that, you'll catch a bunch of waves and get used to surfing by yourself.
Don't worry, we provide a lot of personalized instruction.
