Most surf lessons are two hours, and include professional instruction, safe high-quality soft surfboards, and premium full wetsuits.
The best conditions are typically from 8AM to 11AM; We like to get our last lessons started before noon when it gets windy and crowded. During the off-season appointment times are more flexible (and often the conditions are better).
During the off-season we DO REQUIRE A DEPOSIT OR PREPAYMENT in order to confirm your lesson. We rarely have groups to join. A private session will give you much more flexibility with times, as well as a more thorough and informative lesson.

Tips about surf school ‘bargains’
- Note that most of our lessons are TWO hours. You may find cheaper lessons advertised, but often you’re looking at an HOURLY rate. (We don’t like to negotiate a second hour in the middle of all the fun).
- Banzai never overbooks or has a shortage of equipment – some schools will “rotate students” or pull surfers out of the water just as they are getting stoked. That’s less water-time, and that’s a drag, dude!
- Size matters. Any surf school that puts a 200 pound beginner on an 8 foot board is not properly equipped. Eight foot boards aren’t much good for beginners over 130 lbs. We have ten footers, and a few assorted battleships too.
- Most surf camps do not offer FULL wetsuits. We do. (And you’ll be happy: Water temps sometimes dip into the 50′s even during August)
