A perfect day for a surf lesson

Bolinas Surf Lessons offers both private and group lessons.

Private Lessons
Private lessons are available for 1 to 16 people and can be scheduled for all ages. Come alone and receive one-on-one instruction or bring as many friends or co-workers as you like. Surf lessons are a great activity to learn with the encouragement of your friends or can be a great team-building exercise. Private lessons last 1½ hours and cost $120 for the first person and $40 for each additional participant. Private lessons are offered year round and can be scheduled for any time during the week or on the weekend.

Participation agreements must be signed by each child's actual parent or legal guardian. No exceptions!

Adult Beginner Group Class
Bolinas Surf Lessons offers Adult Beginner Group Classes on Saturday and Sunday for $50 per person. Classes last 1½ hours. These classes are designed for beginner and first time surfers and will focus on surfing rules, etiquette and wave riding fundamentals. Unlike other surf schools that may have as many as 20 students, our class size is kept small (usually 3 to 6 people) to ensure students receive the personal attention they need to develop their surfing skills. Advance registration is recommended to attend Group Classes. Group Classes are offered from April to October.

All Equipment is rented from the 2 Mile Surf Shop and will be reserved for your lesson. Rental equipment can be kept for the entire day or for a ½ day. Equipment includes: Board, 4/3mm wetsuit and booties.

Please arrive at least ½ hour before your lesson. Lessons will be cancelled if student arrives more than 20 minutes late to a private lesson or 10 minutes late to a group class.

Groups larger than 6 should call or email for scheduling.
