Our Beaches

While most surf lessons are limited to one stationary location, Lovewater gives you the ability to choose from a variety of different surf breaks across Santa Barbara County. Due to this customized option, our team is able to hand pick the location which will best accommodate the constantly changing wind, tide and swell.   If you or your party would like to request a specific beach, feel free to select it on the checkout page. If there is not enough swell at your designated beach on the day of your surf lesson, our staff will email or call to inform you of the alternative beach. On the day of your surfing lesson, just show up at the designated beach and look for our company vehicle with the Lovewater Surf School signs!
