First is outfitting the student with the proper equipment and assess their experience, athletic ability and comfort level. Then I provide about 30 minutes of beach instruction, including basic teqniques, safety tips and information. The next step is a hands on (literally) approach to catching waves, getting to your feet and riding. the rest is based on the individual progress.

I taught all of my kids how to surf and always had friends asking me to teach their kids. I began helping my friend with his surf school in Pismo Beach and found that I was good at relating impotant aspects of the sport to students. I moved to San Diego and began teaching here, receiving amazing feedback from students and people I worked with.
All levels and all ages. From a person who didn't even know how to swim to coaching professionals. ages from 3-70 years old. I have worked with students who have disabilities such as Autism, ADHD, Cystic Fibrosis and Paralysis.
Working with a student who is a High-Functioning Autistic 12 year old and watching him progress and smile and laugh the entire time. It makes me smile just thinking about him and proud to do what I do.
Don't be influenced by price. Be influenced by experience and reviews from other students. One-on-one lessons are the best way to get the most out of your lesson. It's always fun to have a friend to feed off of too, but the large group lessons usually leave you to struggle on your own.
