Herbert Hoover won Americans’ hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a surf board in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a 1.5-hour surfing lesson from Malibu Surf Shack (a $125 value) in Malibu Beach. Additionally, Groupon customers get $60 toward the purchase of a new surfboard.
Prospective oceanographers will get to behold the sights, sounds, and underwater empire of super-intelligent sea turtles along Malibu's Surfrider Beach. A professional, buoyant instructor will lead the way and provide a steady flow of surfing tips and fun facts. Students are limited to three per instructor, ensuring a high level of personal attention. Surfboards and wetsuits are also included, so prospective wave tamers won't have to worry about cobbling together a makeshift board out of popsicle sticks, Laffy Taffy, and wishful thinking.
Malibu Surf Shack has been renting surf boards and wetsuits to experienced wave-rodeo enthusiasts and fledgling ten hangers since 1972. A friendly, down-to-earth staff exemplifies the region's passion for surfing, particularly in the patient way staff members smile through endless Point Break references. With a shop overlooking scenic Surfrider Beach, it’s a bodacious place to start learning the basics of surfery or to commence an arduous 11-month voyage to Japan via your cardboard submarine. Malibu Surf Shack offers multiple classes daily, starting at 10 a.m. and running throughout the day. Call to reserve a spot.

Malibu Surf Shack
Overlooking Surfrider Beach and the famous Malibu Pier, Malibu Surf Shack has been a destination for ocean activities since it first began as surf shop in 1972. Crashing waves and surfboard migratory patterns lure instructors to the point-break beach. Here, the pros teach small classes how to shred and duck atop waves. Students can rent boards and other watercraft including kayaks and standup paddleboards to join in on the fun.
Inside the retail shop, boards from brands such as Walden, McTavish and Channel Islands await their next wave-riding excursions. Malibu Surf Shack's staff demos all of the new and used gear, letting customers try boards or take them to a romantic dinner before making long-term commitments.
