Surfing has been in my life for over 20 years. I'm originally from Santa Monica and truly love my home. I have certifications from the International Surf Association as a Level 2 surf Coach, I am a certified Open Water Lifeguard, and I am CPR certified. I am permitted in the city of Los Angeles and Santa Monica. In my career as a surf coach, I've taught thousands of people in the 12 years of owning my surf school. I have taught all over the world from Bali to Costa Rica to Hawaii and currently do retreats to Central America and Mexico. I would describe myself as a young hearted, funny, easy going individual who loves to be in the water at all times.

This was my first time surfing and it was so fun! Pauline (our instructor) was incredibly kind and helpful and guided me and the group the whole time. I was able to stand for a few seconds and I would consider that a success for my first time haha - super fun cant wait to do it again!

It was an awesome time! Nico and the other instructor were great. They were very knowledgeable and passionate about surfing and gave us great instructions on what to do in and out of the water. Couldn't have asked for anything better, we even had some footage recorded on a GoPro. Highly recommend this experience can't wait to surf again.

Such a great first-time experience! The instructors made sure we understood the foundations to surf anywhere in the world! Also, they did really well on correcting technique and providing all the equipment for us. The Gopro videos and pictures turned out great!
