I CAUGHT MY FIRST WAVE. One of my favorite experiences in the Santa Barbara area! I was quite nervous to take my first surf lesson, but Thomas was able to instill confidence in me before we entered the water. He taught me the proper techniques and the importance of safety and commitment. I love that he is transparent on good or bad surf days, and finds the best local surf spot to ensure you can catch a wave and have fun! After one lesson, I signed up for the membership soo…. I think sums up how great it was. Had a blast! Thanks, Thomas and iSurf!
Our 3 kids had a private lesson with Thomas and they absolutely loved it! Thomas was great with the kids with clear instructions and teaching at the start before getting into the water. Great introduction to surfing, good amount of time for each kid to have loads of practice. Would book again the next time we’re in Santa Barbara!
Learning to e-foil with Thomas was SO much fun. He took care of all of the equipment (no small feat; this is a way more involved process than a surf lesson) and provided all the necessary safety gear. It might seem like an expensive lesson, but when you see all the gear/set up and know how much it all costs, it makes sense why it costs more than a surf lesson. He provides clear instructions to help you progress and makes it feel safe. Perfect way to get started with foiling!
Highly recommended! We had a wonderful experience and truly felt taken care of as people. Make sure to get qualified instruction to start your surf journey on the right foot. For the experienced, you should still stop in for local insight and share a story or two.
Awesome experience with Thomas and RJ - not only did they give great info on where and when to surf, they took great care to ensure our 16-year old understood safety and etiquette. She ended up catching a ton of waves with them, and had an amazing 2-he private lesson. Highly recommend.
