Eat Sleep Surf is about a passion for surfing. And we believe that the first time you surf is the most important time you will ever surf. That's why we want our beginner surfers to have the best experience possible and begin to learn surfing at their own pace. Our lessons are personalized based on the level of the individual or group—no experience necessary. We will work on the basics of popping up, paddle technique, wave etiquette, and safety. Then we enter the shallows riding the whitewater until students are comfortable venturing further out. Whether you want to push your surfing beyond the beginner level, or just get out in the water safely with your friends, Eat Sleep Surf is here to help you reach your goal.
