Meet us at Santa Monica State Beach

Santa Monica State Beach is known for consistent beach breaks. It’s especially great for beginners because of the wide expanse of smooth, flat beach and rolling waves. Expect to see all age ranges, skill levels and board types present in the line up. Celebrities, tourists, and locals all surf here – you never know who you’ll see out in the water! 

The family-friendly atmosphere of this beach is also a big perk. Parking lots are available nearby, an awesome playground is located on the northern side of the beach and gymnastics equipment is located on the southern end. Crowds are something to consider, however, especially in the summer or when there is a big swell.


Our instructors will meet you at Santa Monica State Beach with surfboards & wetsuits. All you have to do is show up ready to hop in the water!
