Tour description provided by Viator

Calling all kids who want to be the next Laird Hamilton! Learn to surf in one of Southern California’s most beautiful settings – La Jolla Shores – from qualified, friendly instructors. You’ll be popping up on your board and riding waves in no time after you’ve completed this 90-minute lesson. It’s the best memory you’ll take home from your San Diego vacation.

This group surfing lesson is just for kids aged 5 to 11 and is the perfect introduction to learning how to catch waves and improve surfing skills. The group setting makes the surf lesson a fun activity to share with other adventure-seeking kids.

A team of expert instructors will cover basic aspects of surfing, from ocean safety and surf etiquette to paddling, pop-ups and wave-riding techniques. But perfection isn’t necessary – follow the motto "the best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun," and you’ll have a wonderful time, even if you don’t master the sport in 90 minutes. Surf instructors are certified in CPR, first aid and lifesaving.

Please note: lesson is open to children ages 5 to 11.
