Our instructors are comprised of professional surfers, lifeguards and teachers. All of our coaches are CPR and First Aid certified, and go through a three-month training program. The instructor training program is a rigorous boot camp of extensive ocean swimming, beach running, ocean lifeguarding, emergency response protocols, customer service, systematic surfing instruction, camp operations and safety training. We believe in hiring instructors that are not only advanced surfers with strong ocean confidence, but who also share and uphold our same values. It is important that all of our coaches can be seen as role models by our students.
