In the last 10 years I have seen the sport of surfing grow faster than ever before. Here in San Diego, up and down the coast, we are seeing more and more people hit the water with each year that goes by. And why wouldn’t they? After all, Surf in San Diego is abundant and amazing for all kinds of surfers, all year around.
San Diego Surf Culture runs rich and deep, but with more and more people crowding the lineups, it becomes super important to give yourself the opportunity to get the best Surf Education. In this way you’ll pay the respect that the sport of Surfing, and those that have been practicing it for centuries deserve.
Surfing is for sure about having fun, but for many it goes beyond just fun and games. It begins to enter a realm of an everyday way of living and connecting to yourself and to nature. For many surfing is their ritual, their Zen, and their escape from the many stresses of life.
If you have ever observed an experienced and connected surfer, you may have noticed the natural confidence and flow they show. From the moment they grab their board to enter the water, paddle out and surf through a spectacular seemingly choreographed dance on a couple of the day’s set waves. All the way to the walk out of the water with an almost floaty and aloof smile on their faces. Their sessions are often seamless.
They know what the conditions will be like, have the most appropriate board or quiver of boards to ride for that particular day. They catch waves and enjoy them. They flow perfectly in and out of the lineup without getting in the way of other surfers or without getting too pounded by the breaking waves…
They make something that is really hard seem fairly easy; and if they are really good and connected, they make it seem like Art.
Now let’s be clear, it takes time and years of practice to achieve this level of Surfing. But if this is what you aspire to achieve there is no better place to start than with a solid base of Surf Education.
Learning to Surf or becoming a better surfer requires the guidance and application of many theoretical as well as practical aspects that can only be thoroughly taught through adequate time and experience spent in and out of the water. At Pacific Beach Surf Shop we are the oldest surf shop and the most trusted Surf School in San Diego. Our surf school and surf shop deck rests right against the boardwalk of South Pacific Beach and overlooks the ocean, so we can observe the conditions all day, every day. All of our instructors are intermediate and advanced Surfers with a passion for Surfing and teaching, and our surf school curriculum teaches you everything you might want to know and learn in regards to Surfing.
As we celebrate our 60-year anniversary this October, we are offering 10% off our 3 series lessons, 15% off 6 series lessons, and 20% off our 9 series of lessons. All our series of lesson packages will have a photographer capturing your best waves. In addition, with the purchase of a 9 series package, we include a video coaching session in which we will video your waves and have our advanced instructor analyze these together with you to coach you on what you can do better technique-wise, and in relation to what the wave is doing. Watching yourself on video together with a knowledgeable instructor is proven to be one of the fastest and most effective ways to advance your surfing.
