Our mission is to educate, inspire, lead, and empower people to a greater sense of awareness, knowledge, health, and eco-responsibility through our surfing schools.

The Aqua Surf School initiative began in 1997 with a goal of sharing the gift of surfing in a safe, fun, and professional way for everyone to enjoy. Headquartered in Santa Monica, Aqua Surf provides surfing instruction services throughout Southern California with our surf schools, camps and lessons. We have developed a systematic way of teaching students, training instructors, and running operations to share amazing surf lessons with our local community and visitors from around the world. As the culture and demand of surfing continues to grow, we advance our innovations, dynamic methods and company practices to ensure a positive and rewarding experience for everyone.
