We had never surfed before, this was something my son wanted to do. We had two instructors for the four of us. The instructors were very helpful in giving tips to stand up on the surf board. We had a one hour lesson and we all were able to stand up a little by the end.

Our foursome (including two kids) had an amazing time learning to surf with Surf Diva in La Jolla CA. Our instructor Jakue was fantastic and very patient - made sure we all had a chance to stand-up!

Signed up for the women's weekend surf clinic. Our instructors, Marianne and Justin, were knowledgable and did a fantastic job of educating us on how to surf. They kept it simple and fun. This lead to a great and successful experience in the water. They both were committed to helping become surfers. They provided just the right amount of assistance... More

This is one of the best times we have had in the area. My daughters and I stopped in and were delighted with the owner and all the staff. Instructors were great and we had an amazing time. Would recommend to anyone with kids or big kids to try it. Thanks so much.

So surfing has been on my bucket list and since I just turned 40...I figured I'd better get on it! I was drawn to surf diva because of their female friendly vibe. My instructor Davo was fabulous! He helped me get comfortable swimming in the ocean and took me step by step through it all. I'm a plus sized woman... More

I could not have been happier with my SUP instructor, Matt! He was friendly, experienced, professional, and motivating. I know his instruction and tips will help me to continue to improve my SUP surfing skills. I was able to catch some good waves before our 1 hour lesson was over. It was enough to keep me smiling many hours later.... More

I was so exited when I saw my 8 yr old daughter catch her first wave while attending Surf Diva Surf School. The instructors were professional, wonderful, warm and helpful as they worked with Maeve to reach her goal of standing up on the board. Maeve was eager each day to see the instructors and go out into the water.... More

Decided to surf on my trip out to California and couldn't have been more happier with my choice. Surf Diva Surf School was very professional. All the instructors were awesome; Daveo (David) was the best. He is very knowledgeable and takes time to make sure you understand and execute all the techniques that he went over. I will recommend Surf... More

This was an awesome experience. It was my first time surfing and the team there did a great job of making this fun. Carla was my instructor and she made sure I was comfortable on the board and knew the basics. She also was very good at offering pointers and advice during my time in the water. I recommend this...
