Had a great morning on the water with Gerry and Leucadia Surf School. Gerry did a great job of explaining the basics and getting us into the water. Got up right away and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thanks Gerry!

My husband and I had a private two hour surf lesson with Leucadia Surf School and it was one of the most exciting things we have ever done. Before getting in the water, we were taught some great lessons on safety. Once in the water, we were up and riding waves almost immediately. Gerry made sure we were set up... More

Excellent instructor for our daughter. It was a slow day with some rain, so she got one on one instruction. She was up immediately once they went into the ocean.

Gerry and his team kept their promise of getting everyone standing up on their boards on the first day. Motivated by their success, the kids (11, 12 & 15) were eager to keep surfing for the five-day surf camp. He has a low instructor-student ratio, so it seemed as though there was always someone to help the kids catch a... More

Gerry is professional and well versed in teaching beginning surf, but he treats you like you've been best friends for years. You can tell his first goal is to keep everyone safe. He goes over and repeats many times simple tips to stay safe and ways to make progress after the lesson. But overall, it was a fun day and... More

My 8-year-old son had a free day while we were in the San Diego area, and Gerry allowed him to join in for a day of the usual 5-day surf camp. He had a wonderful time! Thanks to the wonderful instruction, he got up and was surfing with no problems and in no time at all. Full wetsuit (provided) kept... More

We had a family reunion and everyone went to surf camp. There were 10 siblings and cousins together in the camp. Some of the kids could surf, some couldn't. It didn't matter. Everyone was having fun. And everyone learned something over the week. Highly recommended.

You say some surf and some didn't? No, everyone surfed. There was one who was having trouble, and his mom pointed him out to me, then I had instructors with him constantly until he was up to speed with the others. Then there was Little Charlie from Knoxville, who was having trouble, but I saw one of my instructors get... More

My older kid did camp two years ago we came back this year as my two nine year olds wanted to do it. It's the same great camp that we did 2 years ago. Gerry the owner is just the nicest man you can meet. I will be back if my kids need lessons again. The ratio of instructors to... More
