What you'll do

We will be surfing to cleanse the soul and satisfy our mind at one of San Diego's finest beaches. I will provide proper etiquette and technique I have learned surfing for over 20 years. The personal satisfaction and inspiration surfing provides is something that can only be understood after a surf. Most importantly, we will enjoy and have fun. I am a certified lifeguard and everything we do is based around safety.
Other things to note
Bring sunscreen and towel. Feel free to reach out directly for inquiries about certain dates/time that might not appear available.

Joe was great—very thoughtful about finding a time when conditions were good. He also gave great pointers and was very upbeat. I’d love to surf with him again! Highly recommend a lesson with him.

Joe was an incredible guide and teacher. He really cared about making sure I got the best experience. He is well respected by other locals, which will help you feel more comfortable out there. But here is the reason you need to book a lesson with Joe, even if you have taken a lesson before - access and local knowledge. He can get you in spots you wouldn’t be able to on your own. Fantastic experience.

Joe is great! He is a smart and insightful teacher; he will iron out your bad habits and encourage you to take it to the next level with your surfing. Just in one session I felt like I’d experienced surfing in a totally different way.

Joe was awesome! Had me riding waves on my own after just 2 lessons . He keeps the training simple but you can tell her really watches and provides constructive critique after each run.

Amazing day surfing with Joe! He made sure we got to the right beach and helped my technique popping up. He knows the area well and I felt super safe in the water. Great day!
