The Deal

  • $50 for a two-hour introductory surfing lesson (a $100 value)

The veteran instructors at University of Surfing tutor pupils on the basics of wave riding during two-hour introductory classes. After steadying their footing on land, students mount longboards that help them safely outsmart the ocean’s waves and the air’s wayward seagulls. Since classes are taught in shallow waters during low tide, instructors can accommodate students aged 5–70 who possess basic swimming skills. An included wetsuit and booties keep skin comfortable no matter the weather or water temperature. Classes are usually held Saturdays and Sundays, with some exceptions; click here for the full calendar.

University of Surfing

As the owner and operator of the University of Surfing, Matt Cole has transformed incredibly talented surfers into an accomplished team of instructors. From Kyla Langen, the 2012 Bud Light Lime Tour Champ, and her globe-spanning surf career to veteran teacher and decorated pro surfer Kevin Rhodes, students reap the benefits of the instructors’ years of experience during two-hour introductory surfing lessons. In addition to these basic lessons, the staff also coaches intermediate surfers and offers private lessons, giving advice about paddling, proper standing technique, and proper burial technique for broken surfboards. The wave-loving group also hosts daylong and overnight camps that cover the deepest aspects of surfing.
