Surfing L.A. Surf School - Various Locations

Surfing L.A. Surf School teaches beginning, intermediate and advanced students (7-year-old and up). Students need to know how to swim and be comfortable in the ocean and waves (i.e. you cannot be afraid of putting your head under water). Most of our students are beginners and are able to surf after just a few lessons.

We teach 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Please note that lessons are always tide-dependent, i.e. the tide has to be right, so does the wave size. If the waves are too big or too small, we have to reschedule the lesson. Surf is best in the early morning. Later in the day, the wind usually comes up and kills the surf. Let us know what day(s) you want to take a lesson and we will tell you what time is best.

We offer group lessons (4 to 6 students), semi-private (2 to 3 students) and private lessons.  Children under 14 are asked to enroll in private lessons to ensure constant supervision in the water.

Semi-private lessons consist of 2 or 3 students. We see a lot of couples, mom & daughter, and dad & son choosing this option. A semi-private lesson is $85 per person. Private lessons are also best for intermediate and advanced students.

Surfing lessons take place at various beaches in the area, including locations in Ventura and Malibu.  More information at or call 310.663.0661.
