Santa Cruz, a picturesque coastal California town, truly is “Surf City.”  It has the most consistent waves and widest variety of surf breaks in the Northern Hemisphere.  Come learn how to surf and explore the wonders of the ocean with experienced professional instructors.

This 3 hour surfing clinic at Cowell Beach will begin with a lesson on land to learn about waves breaks and ocean conditions.  You’ll get information on water safety, surfing etiquette, paddling, pop up and push up techniques and balancing.  Then you’ll move into shallow water, riding the white water until you’re ready to go farther out.  Turn your surfing dreams into reality.

This clinic was designed with beginners in mind, including complete newbies.  It’s also great for those who have surfed on their own and want to improve their form and technique and fine-tune their skills.

All instructors are CPR/First Aid and lifeguard certified.  A surfboard and all necessary gear are included.  

If you don’t want surf lessons, this could make a great gift for someone who does.

Surf’s up!
