Full description
Experience a fully private surf lesson which is great for people who have always wanted to learn to surf or who just want to improve their surf game.  Even first-timers are welcome to join and with a private tour, you'll be able to learn at your own pace.  Learn from your professional certified instructor, who will help make you more comfortable on the surfboard and in the water. This lesson will meet in the world famous Venice Beach, where people of all ages gather to enjoy the beautiful Southern California sun and surf.

Before your lesson, get outfitted with a wet suit and surfboard before heading down to the beach. Depending on your level, either go straight to the line up with the instructor or have an extended training session on the sand as you learn all the important aspects of surfing. Your instructor will teach you how to pop up on the board, educate you about the ocean and end the land lesson with the most important part - safety. After that, spend the remaining time with the instructor in the ocean. After the class, follow the instructor to an outdoor public shower where you will be able to rinse off.

This private lesson can be booked for 1 or 2 people and basic swimming skills are required in order to join. You don't need to worry about your belongings, which will be securely stored in the locked surf school van.

Einfach klasse

Zuerst war ich etwas enttäuscht als die Email kam, dass mein Kurs nicht auf deutsch sein wird da der Lehrer nicht da ist. Habe somit den Kurs auf Englisch gemacht und war sehr zufrieden mit dem Lehrer und das was er mir beigebracht hat. Der surf Kurs war einfach klasse und ich werde bei einer weiteren Gelegenheit einen solchen Kurs besuchen.

Der Privatkurs hat sich definitiv gelohnt. Justin ist auf alle Fragen eingegangen und hat alles super erklärt. War eine tolle Erfahrung am Venice Beach.
