Why Santa Barbara Surf School?
Santa Barbara Surf School has been the premier surf school in Santa Barbara for two decades. Our surf instructors have extensive knowledge of the waves in the area. Our instructors recommend Ventura surf lessons in the summer as the waves down there tend to be more fun and consistent than the waves in Santa Barbara proper. The instructors’ priority is that your surf lesson in Santa Barbara will be a memorable experience. Surf Lessons at Santa Barbara Surf School provide you with knowledge that enables your surfing skills to progress beyond your first lesson.
During your surf lesson in Santa Barbara you will learn key surfing strategies. You will learn about water safety techniques, identifying prevailing currents, how and where to paddle, how to paddle through waves, and surfing etiquette. We will teach you how to identify waves, when to paddle, paddling techniques, and of course, how to surf!
We have a wide selection of surfboards suitable for all sizes and ability levels. Wetsuits are included with the lesson and are selected based on individuals’ height and weight to ensure comfort and warmth throughout the lesson. We’ve taught as young as 5 years old and as old as 75. For the safety of those participating in the surf lesson we do require all students to be healthy and able to swim. We look forward to getting you out in the waves!
