- For $37, you get a one-hour surf lesson (a $75 value).

Malibu Longboards Surf School’s experienced instructor imparts thrill seekers of all types with wave-riding knowhow and supplies adventurers with proper surfing equipment. Each one-hour surf lesson begins with 15 minutes of wetsuit fitting and on-land instruction, which teaches students water safety rules, proper paddling and pop-up techniques, and what to do if a manatee keeps hogging all the good breaks. The remaining 45 minutes utilizes in-ocean practice to transform landlubbing boarders into seasoned seafarers by equipping participants with the ability to hang ten and bestowing each their own pet parrot. As an endorphin-inducing bonus, Malibu Longboards provides each amateur Laird Hamilton with a surfboard and wetsuit to use during the lesson.
Opt for the one-hour board and wetsuit rental to challenge waves more successfully than you could with a 10-year-old neighbor’s skateboard. Peruse a stellar selection of gear that is organized by size and style to outfit crest-cruisers of all skill sets. To keep summers endless, rentals can be extended for more than an hour for an increased fee.
Malibu LongBoards Surf School
In 1999, Matt Rosas made a decision. He traded in his corporate career working in marketing for Fortune 500 businesses to share his passion for surfing, which he felt since making his first surfboard in seventh grade. Now the owner and head instructor of the Malibu LongBoards Surf School, Rosas has more than a decade of full-time teaching under his belt. His fellow instructors, Christian Andersen and Jerry Angel, have a combined 45 years of teaching experience between them. Together, they demonstrate how to glide atop waves during private and group standup paddling and surfing lessons. They have teaching permits for Santa Monica, Venice, Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles, Malibu, Ventura, and Santa Barbara, so students can surf the waves and mow the seaweed at an array of beaches. Alternatively, the trio also maintains a fleet of rental boards and the gear to go with them, so surfers can enjoy unassisted sessions on the water.
