Lessons are taught year round and are scheduled by reservation only. We schedule around the ocean tide and swell conditions. If the tide is low enough we teach the lessons at Ledbetter on the west side of Santa Barbara. If the swell is small and the tide is not low enough for Ledbetter to be surfable, we move the lessons over to the Campus Point area north of Santa Barbara. When you schedule a lesson we will give specific directions to where the conditions will be best for the day of your lesson and to meet your instructor.
