We created the first French surf school in California. We are trying to get the French community of the bay area and tourists to surf, but at the same time we love to have American students too. We will teach you in French or in English depending on your preferences :)

If you're visiting SF or live in the Bay, Fabien is your man for surf class. He's the perfect combination of fun & professionalism that you want from a surf instructor. He's incredibly knowledgeable and upholds safety. You are in the safest of hands with Fabien. And, you'll have a blast! I enrolled in Fabien's 10-class program and now I'm... More

Loved my lesson a couple of weeks ago. Fabien & Peter were great teachers and very professional all the way through - from booking (nearly immediate replies!) to instructions. Was bit worried late December would be cold, but didn't feel cold AT ALL! Would definitely come back.

On our annual New Years eve trip, our club decided to camp at the Half Moon bay group campsite secluded from the main campground. Fabien and his fellow instructors advised us to meet at the Miramar beach which is just 20 mins walk north of the sweetwood group campsite along the coastal trail. The best thing about sea and surf... More

Fabien is a great teacher, very nice and very careful. After the second lesson I could stand up on my board. I did 5 lessons with him and now I have a good basis for surfing. Claire who is helping him sometime is also very nice and gives you very good advices. Half Moon Bay is the perfect place to... More

Just finishing a 3 weeks family trip in California. Although we travelled with the 4 kids more than 5.500 Kms, discovering California without tasting Surf was for me a non sense. We contacted SSF 2 mths before the requested date and quickly planned a 2 hours slot (better to contact in advance to make sure you have a slot that... More

I am extremely happy to report that Sea Surf Fun is a great school to learn how to surf with. Surfing in the Bay Area may be quite intimidating at first, but SSF makes the experience comfortable, enjoyable, and most importantly SAFE. The Princeton Jetty is a beautiful place to learn how to surf . It is easily accessible, parking... More

Fabien is amazing! I have taken two lessons from him and had so much fun both times. The first day the conditions were not the best but I never felt unsafe. He is very conscious of where you are in the water at all times and is always watching you to make sure you are okay. The second day, was... More

I had my first surfing lesson in this wonderful setting. Great coach, perfect conditions, and we had the sun with us in February. Two hours is plenty to begin with... We even had a bonus: the visit of a sea lion.
