At Surfer Factory Surf School you will be getting surf lessons from certified, educated and caring instructors who have dedicated their lives to knowing and appreciating the spots they surf and teach at. We believe that surfing is a rare chance to see a side of life most people never knew existed and we'd like to extend that opportunity to anyone with a desire to learn and get into the sport.

Don’t search anymore this is the best place you’ll learn to surf! I got to do it in one day, my instructor was professional friendly and so supportive! Took me only three lessons to become a pro!

We had an amazing time with Surfer Factory. Alain, Randy, Nadine and Juan made sure we had everything we needed. It had probably been 30 years since I surfed. They made me feel like it was only yesterday.
