Chris is by far the best instructor of the many I tried in Cali

He really takes the time to teach you the proper way. Makes it fun and gives you tons of things you can practice when not taking a lesson so that you can learn in between. Just... read more

Everything being totally in the moment . Being totally fired up and totally still. Getting caught in a school of dolphins. To know there is something much bigger than all of us. It's really something you cant describe until you are in the zone. You hear surfers talk that way but it doesn't make sense until you first stand up!... More

I have had a wonderful experience with the Surfbug. Well-organized and reliable, the Surfbug provided fun, friendly and excellent surf instruction for a nervous beginners like me! And, if you are wondering how to entertain an out of town guest, this is a great activity. Highly, highly recommend!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
