Surfclass is widely regarded as one of the best places to learn to surf on the entire West Coast.
Students of all ages come from around the world to take part in our year-round surf programs and lessons, where they learn to surf from friendly, knowledgeable instructors who truly care about "sharing the stoke" of surfing. Whether you're interested in our summer surf camps, winter excursions, private lessons or corporate outings, surfclass is ready to make it happen for you.
"There's surely no better place to learn to surf than nearby Ventura…few places possess at once as many beginner-friendly surf spots and a more surf-stoked instructor than Chipper Bell. Better known as "Chipper Bro," Bell runs Surfclass.com… What you really need to know is that this guy is probably the most personable surf instructor on the planet. Figure it this way; You can learn your moves from a monosyllabic dude named "Rat Dog"- or you can sign on with Chipper Bro, whose unabashedly enthusiastic hooting resounds across Ventura's waters like a familiar foghorn."
