Led by lifelong surfer Rusty Whitlock (RW) and his sons Cory and Ricky, Whitlock Surf Experience draws on generations of wave-riding wisdom to help surf students find their webbed wings, year-round. The shop's CPR-certified instructors emphasize safety and fun as they turn the Pacific Ocean into a practical classroom, keeping the student-to-teacher ratio at a five-to-one maximum to ensure individualized attention and prevent doubling up of Marx Brothers nicknames. Students will gain an introduction to all critical surfing skills, from paddling out and standing up to catching waves and evading errant seaweed, setting them on a path toward eventual ocean mastery and a new career as a courier to sea turtles.

Whitlock Surf Experience

The patriarch of more than three generations of surfers, Rusty Whitlock began shaping smooth surfboards almost 50 years ago. Accompanied by sons and professional surfers Cory and Ricky, the men of Whitlock oversee a collection of oceanic enterprises that include surf lessons, custom surfboard construction, and custom merchandizing. Whitlock Surf Experience trains budding boardsmen through small classes with a 1:5 instructor-to-student ratio. All teachers boast at least 10 years of experience and are CPR certified to save any waterlogged sand crabs. RW Surfboards fashions wave-riders of all sizes, from 6'5'' tubers to 11-foot longboards, as well as individual rentals for soft surfboards, bodyboards, wetsuits, and bikes.

The staff was awesome! They're so nice and helpful. The lesson was sweet and to the point. The instructors were really helpful and I was able to get up a few times! They also have some pretty sweet merchandise! I'll most definitely be going back!

Hands down an amazing experience. Great knowledgeable crew and wonderful with my 2 girls (pre teen and teen). No hidden costs and on time. I never leave feedback but this inspired me. Worth every penny.
