If you are going to take a surf lesson in the San Francisco area, there is only one place to go!

I can not recommend Tommy Tsunami Surf School enough! We had a private lesson for the group of 4 of us. Most of us had never surfed before and we were ALL able to catch some waves!

Best surf lessons on the coast. I've taken them in Hawaii and Costa Rica. This was far better!!


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 $40 late fee per participant.
