Come surf with Learn to Surf LA, the longest running and best surf school in Santa Monica! We have been providing surf lessons since 2002 and summer youth surf camp since 2004, and we hold the first permit ever issued in Santa Monica for surf camps. Put our extensive experience to your advantage and come surf with us!

We have been honing our services for over 15 years – our camp is safe, fun and effective. Our maximum student to instructor ratio of 5:1 maximizes instruction without compromising safety while at the same time providing unmatched value. Our camp prides itself in providing the best surf instruction in Los Angeles County, and we have been praised by lifeguards and parents alike for being more than just a day camp: we actually teach our kids how to surf! By the end of a week with us, they will not only have made new friends and had the experience of a lifetime, they’ll be able to handle themselves competently and safely in the water while having a great time!
