Took a private surf lesson with Tor in San Diego--had a fantastic experience. Tor was an excellent instructor, thoroughly going over the basics and the culture of surfing before getting into the water. Once in the water it was a lot of fun...although struggling to "put everything together" Tor was patient and persistent in teaching me proper form and sequence. Would do again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful experience! We booked a beginner lesson with Wavehuggers for our four teenagers and they had a blast!! Daniel was laid back, encouraging, and a great teacher. The kids thoroughly enjoyed their two hours with him. It was an excellent introduction to surfing and a wonderful morning in the ocean. I highly recommend Wavehuggers for anyone who wants to learn to surf, but it was an especially great Socal outing for teens.

Wavehuggers is amazing! The private surfing lesson is 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!

Has such a good time surfing with Tor and Spencer in Newport Beach. Wavehuggers helped us pick the spot and time, and we were off with a group of 6. They have good instructor ratios, 1:4 and they pushed us into waves to help us get up. We all got up a bunch of times and felt safe in the water at all times. Everyone I've dealt with at the company has been so nice and cares for the beaches and the ocean and they just want to share that passion with other people. Thanks for a great time!!

Had an amazing lesson with Wavehuggers through their collaboration with Free People Movement! Brian was my instructor and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! It was my absolutely first time ever being on a surfboard and Brian was extremely knowledgeable and patient. I felt safe the entire time, never got too frustrated, and thanks to Brian's excellent coaching, stood up a few times before the end of the lesson! I was beyond excited. Would definitely book another lesson with them

Called about 2-3 surf schools before Wavehuggers and they were the only ones that actually answered the phone, glad they did. They hooked me up with this good looking surfer dude, Dale, who was not only cool as s**t he started the lesson with knowledge about the ocean. How the swells come into Hermosa (where I took my lessons) in the summer vs the winter, how to scope out the waves, who has priority on the wave based on the break...all this before we even talked about being on the board. I found that pretty cool...made me start feeling like a surfer. Through Dale's guidance, I actually caught a wave on my first time out!!! He was just as excited as I was, yelling and shaking his fist as I rode it in.
