We love Surfing and it shows! Surfing is absolutely amazing and will extend and greatly improve your life, both physically and mentally. Surfing is good for the soul.

Since 2004, the University of Surfing has dedicated itself to offering and documenting the best surfing experience possible. The University of Surfing is Professional, Local, Friendly and All Inclusive. We offer year round surf lessons for the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley.

University of Surfing is located 15 minutes south of San Francisco at the gorgeous and tame south Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica. All group lessons are scheduled around the proper tide (low and incoming) to ensure safe learning conditions for our students. Most instructors are CPR, First Aid and more certified. Surf etiquette and ocean safety are very important to us; while the ocean can be calming and peaceful, its force and your fellow surfers must be respected. 

Let our enthusiastic instructors take you out for a lesson and you'll be stoked to come back again. We guarantee to teach you a few things that will make your surfing experience safe and enjoyable, starting with the basics and offering intermediate and advanced lessons to further your instruction. All ages and skill levels are welcome.

Two or three Group lessons will give you the basics to surfing. After that, we suggest buying your own wetsuit and booties and renting boards for a few surf sessions before coming back for a private lesson, or even just another group for a refresher course. Our instructors will help you identify your strengths and coach your areas for improvement.

Surf 101 will get you surfing in under an hour. Our goal is to get you riding waves within your first two lessons. Let us get you Surfing! 

Alumni Group lesson rates, per person: 2nd lesson $75, 3rd lesson and on $50

Ages 8 to 70 are welcome, we will take them younger if parents will join us.

We are here to teach you to ride waves and safely enjoy the ocean!”
