About UsThe best surf lessons, camps, and rentals in San Diego
Choose Surfari for All Your Surfing Needs
Surfari was established in the summer of 2000 by a former San Diego lifeguard. Our goal is to provide the best value in San Diego for surf lessons, surf rentals, and surf camps. What separates us from the rest is our location, experience, 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! Our instructors are veteran surfers with decades of surfing experience. They’ve spent many years ocean-lifeguarding here in the Greater San Diego Area and therefore, are Red Cross certified in CPR and trained in Ocean Rescue and First Aid. All of our instructors attend a surfing instructor safety class taught by off duty ocean lifeguards, to keep their certifications current.
We're Dedicated to Teaching You How to Surf
Our instructors love to teach and always have students’ best interests at heart. Their mission is to offer the best surf lessons, surf camps, and surf rentals possible! Surfari has already taught thousands of students how to surf or improve their skills over the last decade.
- Our Goal: Customer service and satisfaction.
- Our Guarantee: If you’re not 100% satisfied with your surf lesson experience, your next lesson is FREE.
