I'll be meeting you at a local surf spot that is tucked away, just south of SB where there's easy free parking and even easier waves to surf! I'll have a surfboard and comfortable suit ready and waiting for you when you arrive. After we suit up we'll then hit the beach to go over some etiquette and techniques needed for surfing before entering the water. If you'd like to extend your time in the water please let me know. My top priority is keeping you safe, confident in your ability, and excited about surfing! I'll do everything in my power to get you standing up on the surfboard or improving your ability! I look forward to meeting you and hopefully sharing a triumphant surfing memory!
As a native Californian I have a deep passion for outdoor sports. For the past 5 yrs I've brought that passion to the team at Santa Barbara Surf School - one of the longest running surf schools in Santa Barbara. Normally we teach lessons at $85/person but as we're joining Airbnb we're offering our lessons at only $49 for a limited time as we build reviews . I have found that teaching others to surf, whether they pick it up right away or need a slower pace, is an immensely rewarding experience. I love watching people try something new and form a connection with nature that they didn’t expect
Longboard surfboard, wetsuit, and experienced instruction
We'll meet each other at my surf van parked at whichever beach is rolling out the best waves on the day you want to go (and I'll provide easy directions). We'll both suit up in wetsuits and I'll also provide you with a longboard ideal for learning. When you're ready we'll walk just steps to the sand for some pre-lesson tips. Before you know it I'll be guiding you into the waves at one of SB's top point breaks!
In order for safety to be the top priority I do ask that you know how to swim and that you are comfortable in ocean water. You must be 7 years or older to surf with me.
