Common Surf Lesson Questions
What should I bring ?
A towel , sunglasses , and breach attire are best but not neccessary. If you bring water , we can refill it , or provide you with some.We have changing rooms and a place to rinse off as well. Sunscreen will be provided along with all the equipment needed.
How old does my child need to be ?
I always tell the parents ” If your kid is comfortable in the water and can pay reasonable attention to the basic instruction , you will get your moneys worth.” We have had sucess with children as young as 4 yrs old. We can pro-rate a special price for young children lasting one hour or less.
What are the beach / surf conditions like?
Your lesson will take place directy behind the surf shop through priveate beach access. We are blessed with a clean, sandy, west facing beach that is perfect for beginner, intermediate and sometimes advanced surfing. It’s gentle surf and sandy ocean floor are deemed “the worlds safest beach”. The ocean temperature fluctuates from the low 50’s to the low 60’s. The average Santa Barbara days are sunny and ranging in the mid 70’s.
Are you insured?
Yes. We have an extensive insurance policy that covers all of our lessons, parties, camps and rentals. Our insurance meets or exceeds the requirements for all local hotels as well as Boyscouts / Girlscouts of America, the University of California system and other such organizations.
Why are others so expensive?
Other service providers are seasonal and oportunistic. Some use a costly referral service’s or need to hire seasonal help. We are family owned and operated. Our instructors work year round and have been fine tuning thier curcirculum for over 10 years.
How long does it take for a lesson?
A one person private for surf or S.U.P. lesson will last approximately 1 and 1/2 hours minimum. Multi-person lessons last longer as we always continue the lessons untill the instruction is complete and the client is satisfied. Plan on continueing using the equipment on our beautiful beach for a couple more hours of practice and fun.
