What you'll do

Our 90 minute surf lesson will begin when you meet up with your instructor. You will spend a few minutes on the beach getting set up, and the rest of the time will be spent in the water honing your skills. We have a very very high success rate with getting surfers to thier feet and riding waves. Each person is typically looking for their own personal experience, and we try to provide the best possible lesson to cater to that.
Other things to note
All bookings will be your own independent group. We do not combine groups together for surf lessons.

I am a lifelong surfer who is seriously stoked on teaching people to surf. I have owned and operated St. Augustine Surf School for 10 years. I will be leading the daily surf lessons that will teach participants everything from the basics to more advanced techniques depending on your individual skill level. The course aims not only to develop these skills, but to better each participant’s understanding of how waves work and where they come from, general ocean awareness and safety, and most importantly to foster a love of surfing that can last a lifetime. The experience of surfing can be life changing...or just a cool and fun experience while on vacation! I understand that it is different for each individual and I will cater to the experience you are looking for! Thanks for choosing us!

Taking a surfing lesson has always been on my bucket list, so for my birthday, my boyfriend and I decided to take a lesson with Dustin. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone! He was highly personable, and made us both feel comfortable in learning something that is sort of intimidating! Dustin gave us really great feedback in the water and we both were able to ride in some waves. It was the highlight of my trip to St. Augustine!

Dustin was the perfect surf instructor! He got us standing up and surfing in no time! We got right into the water after a quick lesson on foundations on the beach and got to catch so many waves. He definitely is extremely knowledgeable and has a passion for surfing.

I would highly recommend surfing lessons with Dustin for anyone from beginner to advanced, young to old. I took my dad surfing for his birthday (he just turned 68). Dustin was incredibly accommodating, kind and helpful. My dad and I were at very different skill levels and he was able to work with and modify to both of us while still giving a lot of individual attention to each of us. This was my first real time surfing (outside of a few failed attempts on my own) and I got up many times and even got to the point of turning on a few waves. My dad has limited mobility and did his best and managed to get some good knee boarding in. Thanks to Dustin's easy going and friendly approach, we both had a great time.

I had such a great time learning how to surf for a first timer. Travis was a great thorough instructor and makes sure you are having the best time. I would say I’m pretty confident that I learned enough on how to surf on my own and I cannot wait to hit the water again. Would highly highly recommend to take lessons from them.

Sean was our surfing coach. My husband and I have taken one other surfing lesson 20 years ago. I was never able to even get my feet up on the board to get close to thinking I was surfing. Within 15 minutes I had the basic foundation to get my feet up on the board and I surfed several waves! I was ecstatic. My daughter who has spent very little time in the ocean was directed with care and precision. She was surfing better than both my husband and I and is excited to get back out there. My husband is also planning our next vacation around going somewhere to surf. Awesome, rad and totally cool!
