Wavehuggers was a great experience.

My girlfriend and I went to a free demo on Nov 23rd, the instructors were really welcoming and made us feel comfortable, even though it was out first time attempting to surf. We ended up booking a lesson for a couple days later.

The lesson was a blast, Helina was our instructor. She was really knowledgeable, encouraging, and cool. They seemed very flexible when it came surf spot selection, we ended up going with their recommendation, regardless it's a plus.

I highly recommend Wavehuggers to anyone interested in trying to surf.

Wavehuggers is awesome! I scheduled a lesson for me, my wife and two of our kids while we were visiting family in the South Bay. First of all, whoever helped me over the phone was super helpful. She asked questions to assess our abilities, our location, etc., and she even suggested the best time of day for our lesson. Our instructor was Quinn and he totally made our day. He made the whole experience fun and laid back, which can be challenging with 10 and 8-year old boys who tend to get frustrated when something isn't immediately easy. We all had smiles on our faces all day long, and the 8-year-old went home talking about how he wants to surf every time we visit L.A. Thanks, Wavehuggers!!!

I was just visiting So Cal with my daughter and we purchased a lesson from WaveHuggers. The lesson was a private two hour lesson at Manhattan beach. First I should point out that their web site was very informative and accurate. When I called someone answered right away. The lesson was easy to schedule and pay for. Confirmation was emailed promptly. Nothing else is required. Wet suit and surf board are provided. Very, Very easy. The instructor was very professional and knowledgeable. She put me at ease right away and I had full confidence that my 12 year old daughter was in excellent hands. For parents with kids, do not pass this up! The only other point I would like to make is that we should have made arrangements to rent a surf board so that my daughter could follow up with the lesson. The rentals are cheap. By the way in the scope of things to do in the L.A. area with your kids, the lesson is cheap, by comparison I spent $350.00 at the Dodger game the night before.
Good Luck and peace.
