What you'll do

The best surfers are the ones having the most fun.

Our main goal is to get you up and riding on as many waves as possible! But first, we need to show you a few tricks like getting into a wetsuit or waxing your board. First, we’ll get suited up and then head to the beach for a quick fifteen minute warm up, consisting of some pop-up techniques, mobility stretches and a quick guide to navigating the waves and lineup.

Once we’re in the water we’ll make sure you’re on the best waves or pushing you into them, we’ll teach you how to paddle and stand up with ease. Come and join us for an unforgettable Los Angeles experience on one of California’s iconic beaches.

What separates this experience from others is the ability to learn from professional surfers. We'll share with you tips and tricks of the pros to make surfing fun and easy.

Hi, we are Luke Stedman and Damien Fehrenfort - two professional surfers formerly on the World Tour of Surfing, the WSL.

While we’re both ISA certified, what’s really equipped us with the skills to teach is competing against the world’s best for over 10 years. Yes, we’ve both surfed against Kelly Slater, he won ;)

It’s said the best surfers in the water are the ones having the most fun. These days, nothing gets us more stoked than seeing people stand up on their first wave and enjoying the ocean like we have for over 20 years. Join us on an experience of a lifetime!

This experience is hand-picked by the WSL, home of the world’s best surfers.

Supporting pros and beginners alike, the WSL believes that the more time we spend in the water, the better the world will be.

Where you'll be

Just south of the Venice Pier. An iconic beach where surfers like Jay Adams and more honed their skills. But don't worry we'll be on our own little stretch of sand, away from the danger of other surfers.

There are many options in LA for surf lessons - but Luke and Damien should be your only choice. These guys not only know what they're doing, but they have the right boards to match any level, even for those who have never surfed. Just had my second lesson with them - will definitely be back for a third

Damien and Luke were super friendly and cool. My 9 year old daughter, Theo, just had a lesson with Luke this morning and he was an amazing teacher! Luke was extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, and had a great sense of humor. An awesome teacher all around and I could not recommend him more highly. He has a son my daughter’s age and is a natural with kids, but I’m sure he’s a great teacher of all ages. I can’t wait to come back to Cali so my daughter can learn from him again. Thank you, Luke!!

So you want to learn to surf? Why wouldn’t you learn from pros, seriously. Damien and Luke have great energy, are professional, laid back and patient. This was my first time surfing and given their concise instructions, I was able to get up on my first try! They also gave great suggestions of local restaurants and bars to check out. Thanks Damien and Luke - you guys helped realize a long time goal and dream. Wish you the best. Cheers! "Never turn your back on the ocean"

They taught us everything step by step and if we had trouble with something they took the time to show you the correct way.
