Welcome to the wonderful world of surfing. We will not just teach you how to surf, we will give you the tools and knowledge to surf on your own

At Ocean Experience Surf School you will learn the 5 Fundamentals of Surfing, where you will develop surf riding skills, and a love for the ocean.

Your lesson will start with a land based portion where we will teach you our step-by-step comprehensive lesson plan that will develop your skills and muscle memory as you perform activities that are based on the 5 Fundamentals. Your friendly and professional instructor will guide you every step of the way.

The second portion of your lesson is where you will spend the next hour one on one with your instructor out in the ocean applying your newly developed skills in the waves of the Pacific Beach.



Where do we go for our lesson?

Come to our Ocean Beach Surf & Skate shop and our friendly team members will show you to our vintage surfboard room where you will start your dry land “classroom” instruction.

What about my stuff, like keys and shoes?

We will store your stuff in the classroom during your lesson.

Is there Parking?

The front of the shop on Newport Avenue is only 2 hour parking, but there is free unlimited parking at the beach parking lots near the pier and the Lifeguard Tower 1 (the end of Santa Monica). There is also free unlimited parking on Santa Monica, which is behind our shop next to the CVS store. We are not responsible for parking, or vehicles, or any citations you may receive; so please pay attention to the street sign and feel free to ask one of our team members about where you parked to they can help you.

I Bought a Lesson for my Family/Friend, can I watch?

Yes, of course! But be ready to want to jump in on the lesson because it’s easy to follow and a ton of fun.
