Surf lessons

Our head surf coach, The Venice Beach Rat, has been teaching surf lessons for over 7 years. And after being the head coach for the top surf school in Los Angeles, he decided to start his own surf program. And it is the best and most fun experience you could have!


So whether it's your first time or an item to check off your bucket list, we've got you! We offer surf lessons for beginners, kids, and adults! We do private and group surf lessons and surf camps for kids! Your lesson will take place in Venice Beach or Santa Monica. The sandy bottom is safe and perfect for beginner lessons!


What Ages We Teach: We start kids surfing around 5 years old! We teach boys and girls, men and women, grandmas and grandpas! So no matter what age, gender, or skill level you are, we'd love to teach you how to surf!

What Skill Levels We Teach: We offer surf lessons catered to any skill level! If you've never stepped foot on a surfboard, we will make you feel comfortable and confident in no time! If you're a beginner looking to develop a strong foundation, we will help you build that! If you're an intermediate looking to gain some new skills in the water, we've got you covered!


What To Expect During Your Lesson: Each lesson depends on skill level, appetite for risk, and goals. We have a training system that prioritizes safety, progression, and fun. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable and confident in the ocean as possible. We want to see you succeed! And our coaches are the most down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and easy to get along with. We treat you like our family or best friend when you surf with us because that's who we are. Teaching skateboarding and surfing is our passion and purpose. And we want to share that with the world. We want everyone to surf with us!


Lesson Info: Our surf lessons are 90 minutes long and include a surfboard and wetsuit in the price. The first 20 minutes of your lesson is on the beach. We cover surfboard dynamics, ocean safety, surf etiquette, pop-up technique and form. The rest of your time is in the water, surfing with your instructor. Show up wearing your swim suit, sun screen, and a smile. We'll supply the equipment and good vibes.​
