Premium Lessons That Make the Most of your Time On COAST

One surf lesson with Skookum is equivalent to surfing 10-15 times on your own.  Our lessons have been honed over the last dozen years to provide you an accelerated learning experience. The filler has been removed. Our focus is on exactly what you need to get rapidly proficient at surfing; how to move efficiently, catch your own waves (lots of them), be safe and most importantly have fun.  

The Long Beach Peninsula an ideal place to start surfing with a sand bottom beach break, warmer Spring-Fall water temps, constant surf,  and no crowds. The surf season is typically best May - September but there are still lots of fun days in between, things are just a bit more hit and miss

You do not need to be a ninja to have fun surfing, the physical requirements are minimal: be able to pick yourself up off of the ground and swim the length of a pool (so we know you feel somewhat comfortable in the water).  The most important thing is that you want to surf.
