A Customized Surf Experience

The Lovewater Surf Experience is unlike other surf lessons in that we custom pick the day’s best surf spot in order to accommodate the constantly changing wind, tide, and swell.  If there’s a specific beach that is more convenient for your party, simply select it in the checkout.  Whether you’re in Santa Barbara, Goleta, or Ventura, we have a convenient, beginner friendly surf spot just for you.  The day before your surf lesson, our experienced team will analyze the conditions and then let you know if we need to move the surf lesson to a different location.  Our customized beach option is one of the many reasons why Lovewater Surf School has been voted the #1 surf experience in Santa Barbara and Ventura for years in a row.
