A: Yes ! We teach all ages and levels. We suggest you start with a private lesson. Learn more at our Surf Lessons Page.
Q: I don't have any equipment. Will I have to rent or buy it?
A: No. We provide all the equipment you need to get started. You just bring a smile and willingness to learn.
Q: Our whole family would like to learn to surf. Do you teach groups?
A: Yes. We suggest you sign up for a group lesson or check out the extended surf camps we offer. This is a great option for family vacations.
Q: Are surfing lessons safe?
A: Absolutely. While there is an inherent risk with any activity, all of our instructors are certified in CPR and first aid and there is always an American Red Cross Certified Lifeguard present when students are in the water.
Q: What if I have to cancel my lessons?
A: In order to receive a full refund for any cancellations or changes to your reservation you must notify the Los Angeles Surf Lessons office 72 hours or three days before the start of your lesson in writing to need email address (if you are taking a weekend lessons this is the Wednesday before starting your first lesson on Saturday).
