Best Experience!

“I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! It was absolutely my first time ever being on a surfboard and my instructor was knowledgeable and patient! I felt safe the entire time and never got too frustrated. Thanks to excellent coaching I stood up a few times before the end of the lesson! I was beyond excited! Would definitely book another lesson with them!”

Hayley M., Los Angeles

Coolest thing!

“Hands down one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. My instructor was not only knowledgeable but so much fun! I recommend Wavehuggers for all first time surfers like myself. It’s worth every penny and you won’t regret it!”

Marayah G., Irvine CA

Good Time!

“Had such a good time surfing in Orange County with my friends! They have good instructor ratios, 1:4. We all got up a bunch of times and felt safe! Everyone I’ve dealt with at the company has been so nice and cares for the beaches and ocean! Thanks for a great time!!”

Cassandra J., Santa Monica, CA

Our Mission

Wavehuggers is an ocean-conscious surf school on a mission to teach people how to protect and enjoy the waves we love! One of the ways we do this is by donating the price of 1lb of fish to the Marine Mammal Care Center, per lesson.
