At Ocean School, summer's not over yet!!!

We are so lucky to have our "Locals' Summer" as the weather tends to stay beautiful and sunny and the beaches are much less crowded. It's the best season for surfing in San Diego and our favorite time of the year!


This program is ideal for first-time, beginner or advanced beginner surfers who are excited to learn or improve their surfing and spark friendships in a supportive community in the waves.


Locals’ Summer Surf Afterschool Program includes a land lesson and in-water surf instruction with ISA surf coaches each day.

Kids will learn: ocean safety, the fundamentals of surfing (paddling, popping up, catching and riding waves), practical knowledge about the ocean and surfing (IE: tide/wind/swell, reading waves, surf etiquette, beach/reef/point breaks etc.), surf-related cross-training (IE: indo board balance, functional exercises, running, breathwork and stretching), ocean conservation, body awareness, positive body image, the power of setting intentions & goals, ocean conservation and taking care of our beach.

What to bring: surf board*, full wetsuit*, water bottle, sunscreen, towel, flip flops

*Not required. We have 8 ft beginner foam boards & full suits for kids to borrow.
