Cory recently relocated to the Malibu and Ventura area, where he grew up surfing up and down the North LA & Ventura County coast. He's ready to share that with you!

Cory was great, having grown up in the area he knew answers to literally all of our questions about Southern California beaches - where to go and what time of year. He helped us get the feeling right of actually catching those waves and we learned how to do this right. He's a great teacher and is excellent at giving the right advice to get you to the next level.

It was a wonderful experience. Cory was very knowledgeable and he was patient with us. We had no previous experience, so he had to teach us the basics. I think we learned the most we possibly could in 1 lesson, we even had homework the night before, he was great!

Amazing! If you're thinking of taking a surf lesson in the LA area, do it with Cory! He has a lifetime of experience and it shows: both in the location he chose for the lesson and the knowledge and stories he has on surfing. Despite how I have never even touched a surfboard before, he was patient and curated the experience about what I could handle. It didn't feel at all like a strict plan; it felt much more personalized and exceeded all expectations I had. I plan to book him again next time I fly into LA!
