How It’s Done

SoCal Surfs Up loves teaching kids. Most tend to be natural swimmers and surfers because they lack the fear that many adults experience when learning to surf. When they’re in an environment that feels safe and enjoyable with confident instructors, more often than not they jump right into the lessons. With a few small waves under their belt, most blossom and are quickly hooked on the joy of surfing.

We begin with easy to understand instructions about ocean safety. From there we work with kids to get them comfortable being in the ocean and sitting on the surfboard in shallow water. Next, we introduce them to small waves. We don’t move forward until the child is ready and they set the lesson pace. At first, an instructor sits on the board with the child, taking a few very small waves. This is known as tandem surfing. As the child’s confidence grows with these guided lessons it’s not long before they want to try it on their own. After a few surf lessons Malibu CA children often look as if they’ve been surfing for years.

Older children who are more familiar with the water and want to be on their own surfboard are teamed with an instructor who stays by their side. Once again, we begin with small waves and only progress as the child demonstrates an appropriate ability level. SoCal Surfs Up is the right choice for surf lessons in Malibu CA.
