"We started our group lesson out of the water (about 15min), learning the basics to make sure everyone felt comfortable. The staff were awesome. They were so friendly and supportive, making sure to meet each person where they were at, and tailoring their teaching to each persons specific skill level."

"Moderately priced group classes on weekends only. Young guys that are sweet and fun and locals. My 24 y.o. Niece visiting from NY had surfed once in Bali and once when she was like 7. She took a private 1.5 hr lesson at Surfer's beach in HMB and had a great time. She only missed getting up a couple times! Instructor Diego was knowledgeable and kind. Highly recommend!"

Most frequent questions and answers

All lessons are held at Surfer’s Beach in Half Moon Bay. It’s the best “learn to surf” beach in the bay area with friendly waves.

We provide the wetsuit and surfboard so please come already wearing your swimsuit and bring a towel, sunglasses, hat, and a change of clothing. We recommend sunscreen of SPF 50. You will want to stay hydrated at the beach so water and drinks are a must.

Please come 20 minutes before your surf lesson starts. There can be a lot of traffic on the weekends so please leave early as we have a schedule for other lessons and can’t go over time.

All  lessons must be canceled more than 24 hours prior to the lesson. If not you will be charged a $60 late fee per participant.

No-show’s are not eligible for refunds or rescheduling.

A “no-show” is defined as missing a lesson without notice by the lesson start time.

"I highly recommend this surf school. Tommy and Pete run this business professionally, and with a lot of love for what they do. They are down to earth, and attend to both kids and parents needs. The gear (boards, suits, rash guards) was all new, clean."

"There are tons of spectaculat things to do in Half Moon Bay, but this is by far our favorite. I appreciate the focus on safety and instruction (rather than getting an instagram post), their ability to handle groups with mixed skills, and the fact that they have several awesome women on their roster (that really motivated my daughter and niece)."

"My family & I had a blast in our surf lesson. We are from Alabama and we were making our way around the the whole state of California. Tommy fit us in to their schedule and we are super glad he did. This was one of our favorite moments of our trip. There are 8 of us ranging from 9 years old to 44 and we all made it up on our boards."
