What you'll do

The beautiful & vibrant coast of Ocean Beach will serve as your area to experience the sport of surfing. You will first begin by meeting me on the beach with a great attitude and the willingness to learn. I will provide a 8ft Soft Top Wavestorm and a Wetsuit that fits your body composition. We will begin in the interaction stage, where I will develop a better understanding of your previous experience, desired learning style, and go over any questions you may have before we start the learning process. We will begin by getting you fitted into a wetsuit of your choice. (10 mins) To change, you will use the public bathrooms provided at Ocean Beach. Once changed, We will then start the teaching process by going over safety hazards, proper etiquette, and formal technique on the sand. (10 mins) Once you are comfortable and understand the first stage of learning on the sand, we will then transition into the ocean. Once in the ocean, we will begin in shallow water by implementing what you learned on the sand, to live action. (20 mins -) This will include demonstrating your ability to properly paddle, gain momentum with the wave, and properly stand up. We will remain in the shallow water practicing the basic fundamentals until you are comfortable and have demonstrated that you are ready to progress into deeper waters. You can surf as long as you want!

Hey!
My name is Andrew, and I am a 23 year old surfer who has resided in San Diego for the past 3 years. I have been surfing around the world since I was a young child. Surfing has always been my passion, and I’m striving to share it with people who are excited and willing to learn my passion. Surfing for me, has always been my gateway to peace and contentment, while also serving as a physical exercise that provokes me to enhance myself mentally. I view surfing as a meditation, as I encourage the physical and mental benefits that coincide with riding waves on the greatest setting earth has to offer. I would love to get to know you, and I would love to show you my passion, as I’m confident you will enjoy the experience I have to offer. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to meeting you.

Our group had such a great time. Andrew was such a great teacher, very encouraging, patient, and fun to hang out with. He also opened a new time slot for us to work with our schedule which was so helpful. It was our first time surfing and we all can’t wait to go again.

I booked this lesson for my partner. He’s a novice when it comes to surfing and it was something that he has always wanted to do. Andrew made the experience very memorable. It was low tide, conversation was flowing, and the experience was very personable. Quite frankly Andrews price should go up, its a sweet deal. We most definitely will be returning customers, felt like we made a friend for life.

This lesson totally exceeded expectations. Andrew is a a very chill and down to earth guy that takes instruction seriously. He spends plenty of time on the sand to ensure everyone in the group feels comfort with the technique before jumping in the water. In the water, Andrew helps you onto your board and positions you well to catch the best wave. He is really encouraging and celebrates each small win along the way. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in learning how to surf or looking to improve the skills they already have. Great experience!

Andrew is a very experienced instructor who put us at ease while giving very detailed instruction. The class was a good mix of hands on and off instruction. He made sure to give us pointers while also letting us get comfortable with the experience of surfing on our own. His instruction style is fun and engaging, and highly communicative.
