Experience the best surf lessons in Malibu when you learn to surf with us.

Scenic Malibu is nestled between the pacific coast on the West and the Santa Monica Mountains on the East and is one of the most famous beach cities in the country. This section of Los Angeles spans the Pacific Coast Highway and is just north of Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

Without a doubt, it’s the center of California surf culture. Malibu beaches – such as Zuma Beach, Surfrider Beach and Point Dume – are some of the most popular surf breaks in Southern California and are rich in surfing history.

Everywhere you look, you’ll see the influence of the sport. The Malibu Pier juts off downtown and is surrounded by surf-inspired shops and restaurants. Surfers, surfboards & surf vans dot the 101. Surf culture is ever-present and constantly trending.

Malibu is an awesome place to get private surf lessons because you can fully experience the world of surfing!

Wavehuggers is one of the best surf schools in the area and we help clients of all skill levels improve. Both experienced surfers and beginner surfers enjoy the gentle waves here. We offer Malibu private lessons and Malibu surf coaching with our amazing team of professional surf instructors.


Meet us at Sunset Point Beach

While Zuma Beach, Surfrider Beach and Point Dume are epic, Sunset Point is best for surf lessons in Malibu.

The wide, sandy beach has smooth, gentle waves that are awesome for beginner surfers. It’s typically a mellow longboarding break and has a laid-back vibe. Some experienced surfers come here, but there are many families and novice surfers as well. The long rides allow plenty of time for individuals to practice balancing on their surfboard and popping up.

Our professional surf instructors will teach you everything you need to know about surf technique and ocean safety. Whether you choose private surf lessons or surf coaching, you will learn surf etiquette and the proper skills to increase your wave count. Our staff is highly trained, patient and a ton of fun out in the water! 🏄🏽


Our instructors will meet you at Sunset Point (or another location in Malibu of your choice) with surfboards & wetsuits. All you have to do is show up ready to catch waves!
