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, the 2012 Bud Light Lime Tour Champ, and her globe-spanning surf career to veteran teacher and decorated pro surfer Kevin Rhodes, students reap the benefits of the instructors’ years of experience during two-hour introductory surfing lessons.

The University of Surfing designed their own method for teaching surfing—Surf Tourism—where first-timers can ride a wave like a real surfer. The staff also coaches intermediate surfers and offers private lessons, giving advice about paddling, proper standing technique, and proper burial technique for broken surfboards. In addition, the wave-loving group hosts daylong and overnight camps that cover the deepest aspects of surfing.
