Before ocean surfing, thrill seekers were forced to sneak onto the stage at rock concerts before leaping board-first onto waves of angry humans. Learn to ride waves that can’t punch you in the head in retaliation with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a three-hour group surfing lesson from Ocean Experience Surf School (a $105 value).
During the three-hour group surfing lesson, Ocean Experience Surf School's experts guide students through the fundamentals of balancing and navigating atop boards, granting them a savvy set of water-trotting skills. Customized to the skills of each group, each lesson covers balance, paddling techniques, and water navigation before the instructor sends students to tackle the seas. Riding on the waves will strengthen each student’s core while they dart from swell to swell on San Diego's scenic shorelines. All necessary equipment is included, and boarders can practice their new skills for the rest of the day with complimentary equipment rentals following the group lesson.
Ocean Experience Surf School
Over the course of its 22-year existence, Ocean Experience Surf School has helped somewhere in the neighborhood of over 15,000 students to safely discover and refine their passion for watersports. Students 6 or older hop atop surfboards, paddleboards, and kayaks for on-the-water practice under the care of experienced instructors during private lessons and group classes.
The local press and community showers the school's companion retail outlet with praise, which won both the Best Surf Shop and Best Skate Shop in CityBeat's 2010 Readers' Poll. In an effort to give back to the community, the organization runs an afterschool sports program offering surfing and skateboarding lessons to kids up to 18 years old and adults with a note from a certified kindergarten teacher.
