Surf Lesson Instructors

What really sets Campsurf apart from other Los Angeles surf schools are our instructors. All of our instructors are CPR and First-Aid Certified and are experienced surfers and watermen. They each bring their own surf culture and stoke to our students through proven teaching techniques. We are stoked on our crew and can guarantee you will not find a more experienced group of surf instructors at any other surf school. Below is some information on just a few of our active instructors currently teaching Private Surf Lessons. During summer months our active staff jumps to up to 20 local surf instructors so check back regularly for updated info.
