The best surf & SUP lessons, surfboard, SUP, and Bike rentals in San Diego, CA

Choose Surfari for All Your Surfing Needs

In the Summer of 2000, Surfari Surf School was formed by a former San Diego lifeguard.  The goal of Surfari Surf is to provide the best value in Mission Beach San Diego for surf lessons, SUP lessons, and surf rentals. What separates Surfari Surf School from the rest is the location, experience, great customer service, and price!

Our surf school is located in Mission Beach and equipped with complementary lockers and restrooms.

Behind all great schools are talented and experienced instructors! Surfari Surf School’s instructors are veteran surfers with decades of surfing experience. They have all spent many years ocean-lifeguarding here in the Greater San Diego Area. Therefore, they are all Red Cross certified in CPR and trained in Ocean Rescue and First Aid. All of Surfari’s  instructors attend a surfing instructor safety class taught by off duty ocean lifeguards, to keep their certifications current.

A Thank you testimonial we cherish

This is a thank you testimonial created by a former student who wanted to express their satisfaction from a good time had at Surfari Summer Surf Camp in their own special way.
