$50 for Two-Hour Introductory Group Surfing Lesson ($100 Value)

The veteran instructors at University of Surfing tutor pupils on the basics of wave riding during two-hour introductory classes. After steadying board footing on land, students mount longboards that help them to 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 on Saturday and Sunday, with some exceptions; potential students can 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 and her globe-spanning surf career to veteran teacher 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, offering 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.

University of Surfing partners with the Jean Brink Pool in Pacifica to offer brand new classes that focus on surfing, water safety for kids, and underwater training.

During the underwater training, Iggy focuses on breathing techniques, underwater awareness, leash escapes, water orientation, relaxation, and more.

I had to re-schedule several times due to unfortunate events, but the Matt was more than understanding and let me reschedule without hesitation. The instructors were extremely kind, and took time to get to know us each individually. They also provided immediate feedback to help us improve our surfing. This was my first time surfing ever, and I absolutely had an amazing experience. I will do it again. Thank you all so much, and I HIGHLY recommend University of Surfing!!!!!

It was fun, fast-paced and exciting. The instructors were great and helped you catch waves. They were a bit late to the meeting point, though.
