Overview

Journey back to a time when surfing was all about the ‘hotdogging' style of effortlessly gliding along with the wave, tucking into the curl and dancing up and down the length of the board. Tricks meant ‘hanging 5' or '10' toes over the end of your board, not the slashing and aerial maneuvers we see on today's shortboards. Surf the traditional way.

Highlights

Spoilt For Choice

You will be taken to – not one, not two – but four of Santa Cruz's surf hotspots including Cowells, Steamer Lane and Capitola Jetty.

Welcome to "surf city"

Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz

There’s a reason people call Santa Cruz “surf city”—Santa Cruz’s waves accommodate all levels of surfers, whether they charging big wave spots or just want to get their feet wet. Enjoy the local nightlife and local cuisine as well as exploring the different locations you will visit during the trip. 

FAQs

You need to be able to swim, but you don’t have to be a ‘very’ good swimmer. You will surf in the foam of the broken waves where the water is not very deep and you will be able to stand on your feet.

Once you are booked in, we will send you a travel sheet with information on your holiday.

You can get the local train or organise a private transfer online.

We can accommodate all levels, from beginners to advanced levels. You will be split into two groups, so that you can learn at your own pace.

Reviews

I've been surfing for over 4 years now and I still learned so much from the coaches. Santa Cruz was also a great location and really lived up to its "Surf City" name. Highly recommend!

As a complete beginner, I was pretty nervous but Brooke was such a lovely teacher and I felt very relaxed the whole trip. I can't wait to go back next year!

I booked the villa for my best friend's 30th birthday party and we had such a blast! Everything was perfect – from the surfing to the nightlife. We're already planning to go back next year.
