Why take surf lessons?
Ventura, CA has some awesome beaches and a great surfing community, so what better place to ride some waves? At Seaward Surf and Sport, we have expert instructors to show you the fundamentals of surfing so you'll be standing on the board in no time! All lessons put an emphasize safety and fun, but our instructors also take it one step furthur by teaching their students to view the ocean with a surfer's eye. This way, those new to the sport can begin to safely surf on their own with confidence.
The beach right next to our Surf Shop is a great spot to learn to surf. It is not crowded with surfers. You should have plenty of room to learn on mellow waves. If you like bigger waves, then we can throw the boards in our SUV and drive up the coast a bit, checking out the surf. We can find the type of spot you are looking for, and teach you the skills that you want to learn.

A: You must be able to swim, but you are not expected to know how to swim in the ocean as you may not live near the beach. Most lessons take place in waist-chest high water and you will have your feet on the sand until you feel comfortable. You should be able to keep your head above water for at least 2 minutes, although you will not be tested. It is a good idea to be a good swimmer before learning to surf.
