      Alice made a 13yo dreams come true!
      Alice was fantastic! She sequentially explained all steps of surfing in a logical order, showing us on dryland, then water. I really appreciated the pace of the lesson and that it had built in breaks with the out of water portions. Also, Alice was able to give each of the 4 students in my class individual attention throughout the lesson which allowed us to reach our goals. Thank you for a great first experience! -Loriena (48yo)and Riley (13yo)

      A lesson for a lifetime!
      I had a work trip to San Francisco and in my free day I decided to take a surf lesson in the area. This beginner lesson is perfect for those who want an initial intro to surfing! Alan and Stone were extremely knowledgeable. What I appreciate the most is Alan giving us all the safety rules to be a good surfer, teach us how to be respectful of other surfers as well. He really wants to set you up for success even of this is the only class you’ll ever take!

      Everything I was hoping for in the experience. Gained so much valuable information at the beginning that I felt was very helpful. I enjoyed the group setting, and they made it very comfortable and fun. Definitely would recommend to anyone just starting out.

      Great bowmaking class
      Jack and Cliff were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone got the attention they needed so that each participant left with a functional bow, regardless of skill level. The class is very labor-intensive. You’ll be sore, but the end product is rewarding.

      Loved our experience!
      My ten year old daughter and I (53 years old) took a chance on surfing since it’s such a mainstay of the Santa Cruz experience. Chase, our instructor, was funny, fun, safe and a great teacher. We got up and rode waves consistently. I credit our success to, yes, some athleticism but also to Chase’s great system of getting up. Really, so much damn fun. A special memory for us…and maybe some more waves in the future.

      Caught several waves 🙌🏻
      Chase and Adam were fun, easy to talk to and great instructors! I felt safe enough with them to try out a couple of waves I was scared of because I knew they were looking out for me. I’m taking what I learned to Hawaii next month!

      Fire Building with the team
      We had the opportunity to do a team building activity and our host was so hospitable and attentive. Jack was informative, and took the time to thoroughly explain and demonstrate our activity. I would definitely consider booking with Adventure Out again, and would recommend any of my colleagues or friends to book.

      Best surfing lesson in the world!
      San Franciso trip was so unexpected, yet so needed. I knew i will surf in pacific and booked lesson with Adventure out. In full honesty it his was my best surf lesson ever( had some experience in Bali, Normandie and Madeira) but nothing compared to the lesson with instructor Gerry! I learned how to allow myself to surrender to imperfection and feel the ocean, water and the surfboard. Gerry’s patience, life wisdom, advice gave the tools to immerse in your he ocean and be! Thank you for this wonderful experience!

      DO IT
      I had never touched a surfboard in my life but on a whim decided to try the 2-day surf classes with Adventure Out. Jose was my instructor, and he was such a great teacher, super professional and knowledgeable, gave each person in the group one on one help and attention, focused a lot on safety education, and gave extremely helpful tips and feedback the entire time. The other instructors I saw out there seemed really fun too. 100% recommend!

      Fun and informative
      I left the class feeling like I could truly survive in an emergency situation in the wild. We learned some really cool stuff and the instructor was very knowledgeable

      Great surfing lesson
      Fantastic session. Small group (3 students and one instructors). I had surfed only once before by myself before and my goal was to learn how to paddle and catch the waves. And I did and managed to have several long runs! The instructors did a great job continuously giving us individual feedback and tips. I’ll come back next time I’m the Bay Area.

      Really good
      I went for the two day class over the weekend. Surfer Jeff and Jose were great instructors! They taught all the essential basics of surfing, and gave great cues when we out on the water. 100% recommend.

    The instructor Jack Harrison clearly knew his stuff. He gave a lot of real and applicable advice. The instructor was friendly and entertaining as well. The course itself was exactly as stated in the description. It was guided, but hands-on. It was very gratifying to actually make fire out of sticks and build an emergency shelter.

    Can't wait for my next survival course!
