Private and Group Lessons

There is nothing like the sport of surfing and learning to surf is exciting and fun! FCA Surf offers private or group surfing lessons if our surf camps don't fit into your schedule or needs. Every surf lesson is tailored to meet your requirements. Private lessons are held in the early evening or later in the afternoon as there are usually less crowds which makes for an easier and fun experience.

You will have a great experience and a lot of fun. For your safety and to maximize your surfing experience use a professional instructor. FCA SURF is licensed and insured and is the only NSSIA Certified Surfing Instruction in the area!

A surfboard and rashgaurd of course comes with your lesson or may use your own board. Make sure that you have a minimum of  1 1/2 hours for a lesson.

We recommend that you call us to make an appointment as early as possible so that we may accommodate you.
