Instructor Ignacio was very good & patient.
Arlene G. · November 24, 2017
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.

What You'll Get


The first rule of surfing is to look at where you want to go, rather than at the angry merman climbing onto your board. Learn the second rule with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $50 for a two-hour introductory surfing lesson ($100 value)

The veteran instructors at University of Surfing tutor pupils on the basics of wave riding during two-hour introductory classes. Students may also take Beginner with Kids or Beginner with Yoga classes. After steadying their footing on land, students mount longboards that help them 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 Saturdays and Sundays, with some exceptions; click here for the full calendar.
