Welcome to WAVES Surfing School!

Since 2014, we've been teaching from all walks of life to surf. Our instructors have a passion for surfing and love to teach others. Our trainers are all certified with the Surf School Alliance (SSA) so you can be confident we know what we're doing. They are also Red Cross and First Aid certified so you can trust us to keep you and your family safe.


We offer lessons in 2 formats with many options to suit your needs with both private and group lessons.

Private Surf Lessons & Packages

Get a thorough and personalized introduction to surfing with your own instructor in our Private lessons. Ages 5 and up. There is no more effective way to learn to surf than by having the undivided attention of a professional instructor.

Group Surf Lessons

Our Progressive Group Classes provide ongoing instruction for both beginners and more advanced students. Lessons are broken into more and less experienced surfers so that the instruction can be tailored to the student’s skill level.


Our spring and summer surf camp and California surf school is a great way for kids and teens to learn ocean safety while having fun surfing!

Exclusively available at WAVES, our seasonal Surf Camps are perfect for kids and teens with weekend retreats for adults. Our intensive half-day or full-day surf school sessions help students build confidence and improve their skills quickly.

I loved Waves Surfing School! I had zero experience but had always wanted to learn how to surf. The waves instructors are amazing, I can't believe I finally learned to surf. Will be back for more lessons soon!

At the beginning I could barely stand on the board and by the end of my first lesson I was really surfing! Waves is a great place to learn this really cool sport. I feel the prices are competitive too! Totally recommend!

My son and I took lessons together. I wasn't sure about it at first but after a couple of hours I was in love! We both enjoyed it and are planning to be back next year for more!
