Southswell is the best! I took a couple weeks of lessons with Southswell right before leaving to surf in New Zealand for their summer.

My 7 year old son and I did a surf lesson today with an instructor named Austin. It was awesome. He was very patient with both of us and made the experience perfect. I highly recommend a surf lesson with this company if you want to enjoy the ocean while in the area.

We were in southern CA visiting from Cincinnati. Ryan found a great location that wasn't crowded with a sandy bottom (no rocks to hit your head or scrape you feet on). He was also very patient and helped me catch multiple waves. It was a great morning and I would highly recommend him. One of the best highlights of our... More

I took a one hour lesson that included a soft top surfboard, wetsuit and all the instruction I needed to get up on my first day. The instructor was very patient and professional. I had a blast with them and will be back soon for my next lesson. SouthSwellSurfLessons.com [--]
