Experience the thrill and adventure of riding waves in our 3-hour beginning surf class. Ever wanted
to try surfing, but don’t know where to start? This class is designed for first-time surfer and taught
at Capitola City Beach in Santa Cruz, the perfect spot to learn to surf. We get everyone outfitted

pop up on a surfboard, we head into the waves!
