Private Surf Lessons in El Porto

Private Surf Lessons are offered year-round at our El Porto  Rosecrans Ave.  location in Manhattan Beach and are available to all ages and abilities. Private lessons are 90 minutes long, provide focused, wave-by-wave personal attention, and include the use of a surfboard and wetsuit.  Our Instructors are experienced surfers, teachers, and watermen who are CPR and First-Aid certified.

Our Private lessons emphasize safety and fun, but we also take the next step and teach our students to view the ocean with a surfer’s eye so they can safely and confidently ride waves on their own. Our professional surf instructors have taught thousands of students and can assess and address bad techniques so students can improve and move forward on their surfing path. All of our surf lessons include the use of surfboards and wetsuits and we are well stocked in all sizes of both.

Our surf lessons are 90-minutes long.  Approximately 15-20 minutes is spent on land covering safety and technique and the remaining time is spent in the water testing your skills!  We’ve found this to be the perfect amount of time as surfing can be exhausting for first timers.  If you can’t get enough, depending on the surf conditions and schedule, you may use the equipment for a short time after your lesson.**

 

Surf Lessons include the use of a surfboard and wetsuit for each surfer.  We carry all sizes of boards and wetsuits and we bring them all with us so there is no need to specify your height and weight.  All you need to bring is a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen.

 

 

Private Lessons are offered everyday, year-round, and can be scheduled throughout the day.  All of our lessons take place at 38th St. in Manhattan Beach. We meet at the Campsurf Bus in the beach parking lot.  Click Here for Detailed Directions.
