Why Surf Lessons Ventura is the place to learn

Our method for teaching surf lessons in Ventura has been proven to guarantee you stand up on your first lesson! With the combined knowledge of our veteran surfers and feedback from our students, we have mastered the best techniques for beginners to have the best first-time surf experience!

Most of our surf lessons are with beginners who have never been on a surfboard. Helping out first-timers is our bread and butter but that doesn’t mean our team is without life long experts rich in knowledge. Our staff can cater any lesson to be beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

All of our lessons are private because we want the experience to be personable and tailored to you.

Your instructor will teach you the techniques of paddling, standing up, positioning on board, and water safety. For those who are more experienced your instructor will jump right into more intermediate techniques to help you carve on the waves!

” We had a great time. The scene was fantastic, and it felt like a genuine experience. I felt bad for my instructor having to teach a few fresh on the board individuals like ourselves, but he was super patient with us and super helpful in directing what to work on. I will definitely be picking up this sport back in SF “

Where do I meet for my Ventura surfing lesson?

Once your surf lesson is booked we will email all of the details for your lesson location. The information we send will include directions to the surf spot, a picture of our surf van, and a reminder of what to bring with you. We often teach surf lessons at the far north corner of Ventura because of the variety of waves offered there.

The most popular beach we teach at is Mondos Beach. At Mondos beach the waves break nice and easy making it perfect for beginners. If you already have some experience, your instructor will take you further out to waves that break quicker and stronger. Mondos beach is known by Ventura locals as a friendly and beginner surf break so you’ll be in a supportive atmosphere.

Surf conditions are changing on a daily basis so there is always a chance we’ll be teaching lessons at a different beach. Your surf location can range from other Ventura spots to nearby cities such as Carpinteria and Santa Barbara. We are devoted to giving you the best surf experience possible by reading the surf report daily in order to find the best location for your surf lesson.

We will be in contact via phone call and email if we need to change the location of your lesson. Please make sure that we can reach you by phone the day before and the day of your lesson.
