Our instructors are all advanced surfers with substantial ocean knowledge and CPR/First Aid Certifications. Many of our instructors are also teachers, lifeguards, and professional surfers or are coaches to professional surfers. We only hire instructors that share our same values and that are able to complete a rigorous three-month boot camp, comprised of ocean swim tests and extensive beach running. Venice Beach Surf Lessons also matches our instructors with our student's based on our students ability, size, goals for improvement, and availability. Our instructors are here to take our students from their first wave to their first nose ride and beyond.
Venice Beach Surf Lessons believes in being inclusive, kind and welcoming to all people. We understand that often learning to surf can be a "bucket-list" item or that it may be seen as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we strive to make each lesson as perfect as possible, so that our students come away with positive and lasting memories/skills.
