Jetty Betty Surf School’s proprietor Vanessa Floyd imparts essential skills to budding boarders alongside her team of sea-savvy instructors. One-hour surf lessons start on the sand, where students practice catching waves or deferentially greeting dolphin kings by transitioning between prostrate and standing positions on their boards. Students then paddle into surf to tentatively ride their first waves as instructors look on, giving a helping hand when needed. After they’ve successfully harnessed the ocean’s power, groups traipse across the sands to Turtle Beach, an area where sea turtles can often be found lounging in the sun or watching reruns of Flipper.

Jetty Betty Surf School

Like the sea turtles she swims with daily, Vanessa Floyd feels as comfortable in the ocean as she does on land. For nearly a decade, she has taught people how to surf the waves of the Pacific beside the chilly California coast and the warm sands of Hawaiian shores at her pair of Jetty Betty Surf School locations. She focuses on helping beginners overcome their fear of the water and enjoy the rush of riding the surf beneath the open sun. She and her fellow instructors begin their group and private lessons by meeting students at the beach, where they familiarize them with the equipment and the basics of safe surfing. Afterwards, students take to the waves, which instructors monitor to make sure they are suitably small for novice surfers—if not, they’ll either postpone the lesson or unplug Mother Nature's wave machine.

Customer Reviews

The instructor was nice enough to work with us, inspite of an issue with the certificate. Although she was rushed for time - I recognize everyone has a life outside of their work - our kids were able to enjoy the lessons, and in the future I would definitely think of them first. She took time to really explain things to them, and I have already told several friends about the gracious experience she gave us.

Vanessa is an amazing instructor and I love attending lessons with her. I've done both her stand-up paddle board tour and her surf lessons - loved both and had the most wonderful time! I would recommend her to anyone :)
