SURF LESSONS At Santa Monica Surf School
Welcome to Santa Monica Surf School. We’ll give you the confidence to handle yourself in the water and enjoy a lifetime of surfing. We offer daily lessons throughout the year that are designed for every level from beginner to advanced. Let us know if you’re an intermediate surfer when booking your surfing lesson, and we will match you with an instructor that is the right fit for you. It’s also extremely important to understand the location of where you’re going to learn. We use multiple locations in Santa Monica and Venice Beach depending on the surf. Some surf breaks are short and fast but for a beginner we want the wave to be long and slow. Pricing for our one-time private surf lessons are below. Prices shown are for ninety minutes and two hours sessions. Before you know it, you’ll be up and riding.
If you’ve never tried surfing before or have tried surfing a couple times, we will give you the tools from catching white wash waves assisted by an instructor to consistently catching open-face waves on your own! Our group lessons are capped at 6 students per class in order to give a more intimate session between you and the instructor.
Our Group Lessons are two hours long and include board, wetsuit, and instruction from one of our amazing surf coaches. We start with a 10-minute training on the beach to get warmed up, then following an 80 minutes surf session in the water with instruction with one of our surf coaches. The remaining time is yours to practice your skills and have fun with the surfboards we provide you.
Group Lessons are suitable for students of beginner-intermediate levels with the age limits of 12-75 years old. If you’re a total beginner, we recommend you take at least one private session to get in rhythm with the basics.
