Awesome with the kids!

“It was our first time surfing (41 yo, 10 yo, 7 yo) and all three of us did great thanks to the awesome instructors. We were all very well taken care of and well instructed!”

Surfing Success the First Time!

“Our two teenage sons and a friend took a 2-hour beginner longboard lesson from Christian at Progressive Surf Academy, and all found surfing success their very first time on the board! Christian selected equipment and a perfect location to match their level, then provided simple, step-by-step instructions and feedback on surfing techniques and safety. The boys all came out of the water with smiles on their faces and couldn’t wait to book another lesson!”

Catching Waves with a Paddle Board

“I accompanied my wife Ina business trip to San Diego and took an intermediate/advanced standup paddle board surf lesson with Christian (the owner). He is the best SUP instructor that I have met thus far. I have a Board myself, which I use at the Jersey shore over the summer, but I still struggle to catch waves. Christian was very good in pointing out what I was doing wrong and gave me plenty of suggestion for how to improve my techniques. Over the course of more than two hours I was able to catch some nice waves and I had some awesome rides. Christian provided all the gear, including a wetsuit. Next time I am back in San Diego, I will definitely reach out to him again. He has my highest recommendations!”

Excellent Surf Instructor

“Christian is one of the best instructors that you can have. He first taught me when he was teaching on the North Shore of Oahu and I could not have asked for a better instructor. He cares about your safety while surfing and working on specific goals during your lesson to help you improve, not just pushing you into waves like so many surf schools do. He is excellent in teaching both children and adults and understands whatever challenges you might have to becoming a better surfer (for myself being an over 40 year old who had a lot of anxiety about being in the ocean). Check out his school. You will leave very happy about your surfing experience.”

This is hands down the best surf school I have ever attended

“I have been surfing for over 15 years and in that time developed some bad habits. Christian was nothing less that professional in helping me identify my weaknesses in my stance and my speed generation. So far everything has been coming together and I feel my surfing progressing to the next level. I recommend the package where Christian gets in the water with you while you are being filmed, it has done wonders for me.”

There is value in every single minute of his coaching.

“I have now taken two lessons with Christian and my only regret is that I can’t book one every day! I had taken a lesson with someone else last year and there is simply no comparison. Christian will teach you how to surf, period.”
