About This Program:

Children will learn to surf in small groups at California’s #1 Surf School owned by twin sisters Izzy and Coco Tihanyi in La Jolla Shores in a fun and encouraging environment. Your child will benefit from this activity by developing balance, athleticism, and self- confidence with our positive and highly trained instructors. Surfboards and rash guards are provided for the 1.5 hour weekly surf lesson. Classes will feature detailed instruction in: ocean awareness, waves and currents, water safety, surf etiquette, surfing equipment, surfing history, global surf geography. All levels are accepted. The surf program for SDFAS, La Jolla Surf Camp for boys and girls, is run by the top instructors at Surf Diva. The Tihanyi family has one child attending SDFAS, 6th grade, and a 9th grader who also surf in the ASP program and are very involved in the daily school activities and fundraising. Children must know how to swim. Parents need to fill out the package available from the office, sign the waiver and provide weight and height of their children.

All children will meet the instructor at the drop off/pick up zone near the north bathrooms at La Jolla Shores. Cancellation policy: For parents who are not sure if their children like surfing, you can cancel after the first class with a full refund minus the first class cost. Parents have to drop off and pick up their children to and from La Jolla Shores beach. Wet suits are available for rent.

Saturdays starting 2/01/20 to 6/13/20. No class on 2/15, 2/22, 3/1, 4/18, 4/25, 5/23. Please note that the City of San Diego has raised the beach permit surcharge to 16%. All prices in 2020 will reflect this increase.
