Across the lagoon at Seaside Reef the cliffs rise up to the south, this is Solana Beach.

The high cliffs and rows of private residences here mean one thing, smaller crowds. Solana Beach is our favorite place for surf lessons, and you’ll be sure to get plenty of waves to yourself out here. Fletcher Cove offers plenty of parking and a paved walkway to the beach. Further south you can find access to a few more surfing beaches before hitting the end of town at Dog Beach.

Along the coast in Solana Beach is the picturesque Seascape Sur beach, which also has access to a public beach. Solana Beach Surf lessons provide quality water for brand new beginners, to the experienced natives looking to find their style and build their practice. Check out all the options Progressive Surf Academy has to offer for Solana Beach Surf Lessons.
