Learn to Surf at Surfari Surf School

Rewarding and fun surfing lessons from experienced, eager-to-teach surfing instructors!

Surf's up and the waves are rolling in! Take your first steps to becoming a pro surfer and take surfing lessons with the best at Surfaria Surf School! Meet your amazing instructor and begin your surf lesson in the surf shop to master the technique of 'land instruction'. You will cover proper surfing techniques, such as paddling, positioning yourself on the board, standing, wave selection, and surf etiquette. I would like to note that at this point in your lesson, you are an official and certified land surfer! Your instructor goes over the weather and surfing conditions and the  the real hands-on fun and practice time begins! When the practice time is over everyone will meet back in the surf shop and we get a report on what/how we did. The most amazing part is that after the 1 hour surf lesson, students may keep the equipment for 1 extra hour of independent practice time. Practice truly does make perfect!
