Private Surf Lesson

Santa Monica, CA , United States

About Your Host

As founder and an instructor of Eat Sleep Surf, I surf, snowboard, skateboard, wakeboard, rock climb, and climb mountains. I grew up in Chicago and, at a young age, my passions pushed me westward. Months after moving to California, I became a surf instructor working for three different surf schools. I became popular because my teaching approach was light-hearted, and passionate. I have since taught surfing in California, Florida, Hawaii, England, and Costa Rica. I created Eat Sleep Surf to show people the beauty of the ocean and the mountains. Southern California is one of the only places in the world where these two environments exist in such close proximity. When I first discovered that I could camp in the mountains, rock climb, and drive down to the coast and surf in the same day it blew my world wide open. That's why I live in Southern California and I will be here for life.

What we’ll do

Personalized Surf Lessons in LA. I believe that the first time you surf is the most important time you will ever surf. That’s why we want our beginner surfers to have the best experience possible and begin to learn surfing at their own pace. Our lessons are personalized based on the level of the individual or group—no experience necessary. We work, in and out of the water, on the basics of popping up, paddle technique, wave etiquette, and safety. We begin in the shallows riding the whitewater until students are comfortable venturing further out. Whether you want to push your surfing to the next level, or just get out in the water safely with your friends, we are here to help you reach your goal. Surf lessons are offered at Santa Monica beach. If you’d like to change location (no extra charge) to Malibu, Venice, or Manhattan beaches, message me! Private and group sessions available. Go Pro video also available for a $49 surcharge. Your surf lesson includes: 2 hrs of personalized instruction Lifeguard & CPR certified instructors Surfboards and wetsuits Bottled water PLEASE CLICK ON “REQUEST A PRIVATE SESSION” ON THE RIGHT TO REQUEST SPECIFIC DATE/TIME!
