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


For $55, today's side deal gets you a two-and-a-half- to three-hour introductory surfing course from the University of Surfing at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica (a $100 value). All the necessary equipment—including a top-of-the-line soft, safe longboard, warm wetsuits, and booties—is included. Absolute beginners, out of practice novices, and transfer students are all equally welcome.

The University of Surfing is a licensed and insured institution where surfers of all proficiencies can better their boarding skills. Surfing 101 covers all the basics. Wet-and-wild class time at the university's beautiful beach campus starts with a brief overview of high-and-dry fundamentals practiced on the sand. The majority of the class time is spent tossing and being tossed by the scud and surge, carving foam like whipped-cream topping.

The experienced and certified coaches will be the guiding force behind the waves. Lessons are normally scheduled during beginner-friendly low tide, but you can schedule yours whenever if you can handle stronger seas. Just be sure to email ahead to book an appointment, and bring a towel, a swimsuit, sunscreen, and a signed waiver to the lesson.
