Surf Lessons in Santa Monica

Equipment (surfboard & wetsuit) rentals, and all other fees are already included in costs below:

One of the most iconic beaches in Los Angeles, Santa Monica is the perfect place to learn to surf.  With views of the world famous Santa Monica Pier, this beach offers conditions for beginners and advanced students alike.  The sandy beach creates perfect rolling waves, and is also a great place to lay out and catch rays while you watch your friends and family surf.  Dolphins, seals, and other marine life are frequently spotted, while occasional celebrity sightings and street vendors make for great people watching.

After surfing, explore the amusement park on the pier, bike the strand, or even visit the local aquarium!  The beach is right between Venice and Malibu making it the perfect centrally located stop along the coast.  With plenty of beach and metered parking available, and lots of tourist attractions, it’s easy to spend a whole day exploring Santa Monica beach.  But, if you get enough sun, you can also take a quick walk up to the Third Street Promenade, where you can enjoy an afternoon of shopping.  A strip often featured in movies, the Promenade is an outdoor shopping center that has both major and boutique stores and restaurants.  Santa Monica Beach is the most popular option for surf lessons, especially for surf students who are visiting LA for the first time.
