Absolutely amazing!!

We (father/46, son/16 and son/14) were there for one day - surf beginners, but Ski/Snowboard experienced... Shawn taught us the essentials, reduced to the max, and after a two hour lesson we were riding the waves! Absolutely amazing!! Thank you Shawn! Shaka!!! BTW: Our son Jan became a surf addict now... Meanwhile he was surfing the French Westcoast and is planning his next Holiday to surf again :-)

Safe and Super Fun

Do not let the crazy cold water scare you off. Sean and his crew can supply you with excellent wetsuits... Seriously never felt cold even for a minute. Highly organized and professional. This amazing break beats any of the crowded So Cal surf spots by a mile. Sean emphasizes safety and he he's an excellent instructor. Highly recommended. I will be back.

Shaun and his instructors are awesome!

Shaun and his instructors are awesome! They take the time to get to know you, your goals, and your ability level and tailor the lesson to your individual needs. I have had learned so much from his team as a total beginner and cannot recommend Big Foot Surf school enough

Shaun and his crew are nothing short of tremendous. They are really the best instructors of anything (not just surfing) that I have had the pleasure to receive. They'll help to demystify what it's like to be in the surf and before you know it, you'll be prepared to face what's out there.

I had so much fun

I had never touched a surf board in my life but they gave me great instruction and helped me learn good technique for surfing, handling equipment, and being safe. All the instructors were really nice, knowledgeable, engaged, helpful, and good communicators. The wetsuit was very good I was not cold at all. They guided me every step of the way.
