About this Activity
Surfing is widely regarded as a transformative pursuit, with a Zen-like, meditative quality arising from the intense concentration required to catch waves and stay atop them once you do. During this semi-private lesson for 2, you'll start to see that for yourself as you hit the water with an experienced instructor.
Whether you're a first-time surfer or have a little experience already, you'll find an experience tailored to your skill level and learning curve. Start off with land-based drills to learn the art of "popping up" and basic footwork, and then paddle out to put those skills into practice!
Santa Barbara is a great place to learn, with beautiful beaches and great waves that make it a top destination for surfers from around the world.
So ... are you aboard?
Note: Surfboards and wetsuits are provided unless otherwise prearranged. Women's class. Please provide your height and weight in "special requests" box.

Knowledgeable instructors and flexible schedules. They were very understanding when we had delays to our schedule while on vacation. We had a great time and would definitely go back again.

Kudos to our instructor Zach! He's so patient and the experience is exactly what we are looking for. Tom helped us with reservations and choosing the days with good waves. Would definitely come back and surf with the amazing team!

Great surfing lesson with Thomas! He was patient, very nice, but still challenged my wife and I just the right amount so we would make progress. Great instructor, great experience!
Warren K.Group Surf Lesson (Women) September 25, 2016
Had a great lesson today with Zach and Perry. There was a ton of good waves today at Mondo's beach and they were able to safely instruct us how to get the mechanics down behind surfing.
They were both pretty observant throughout the entire lesson and gave me pointers after every attempt of me popping up and riding the wave. They were funny and kept the entire lesson fun and enjoyable.
I'm not the strongest swimmer and surfing out here was a good starting point. The water was up to my upper chest where we were standing (I'm 5'8").
Definitely recommend starting off with some lessons and getting them from iSurf! The groupon deal made it even sweeter :)

We are visiting Santa Barbara and just had an awesome time surfing as a family, 3 adults and 3 kids age 6-9. Thomas was easy to set up the lesson with and instructors Zach and Patrice were awesome! We had a fantastic time and we all got up! I would highly recommend issued to anyone! Thank you for the great California experience!

I researched a bunch of places to take my first surfing lesson and I ended up selecting isurf, and I am so happy I picked them!!! I spoke to Thomas (the owner) after I made the reservation and when we got to Mondos beach he got me and my boyfriend fitted in wetsuits and introduced us to Zach our instructor. Zach taught us some rules and tips on the beach first and then we spent about and hour or so in the water. Zach helped us so much and was super patient in helping me especially. Having never surfed before I was not sure how I would do. I can't tell you how much fun we had because it would not do it justice and we both managed to ride a couple waves!!! If you are thinking about taking a surfing lesson when you are in Santa Barbara I will tell you that Zach and Thomas are absolutely the right people to take lessons from. They are extremely knowledgable, patient, kind and funny! Thanks Guy!!!! What a fantastic Birthday Present!!!!

Exactly what I was going for when I signed up for the lessons.
Thomas is a really cool guy, the private lesson is really great for learning a ton about positioning on the board, paddling, standing up on the board, and maintaining balance. I was standing on the board on the first day, and hopped into group lessons the next day. It was super easy to coordinate, and Thomas even recommended the Airbnb place I ended up staying at in Summerland, which turned out great. Definitely was a major highlight on my trip to Santa Barbara. Would recommend iSurf to anyone wanting to learn how to surf.

Thank you so much for our lesson on Saturday. Kathryn and Hannah couldn't stop talking about it and I scored a "coolest Aunt" comment on the way home:).
Have a good day and maybe I'll sign-up again. I really enjoyed it too!

Thomas came to the rescue to schedule a private lesson for me when another company canceled last minute. The instructor Zach was so wonderful! His patience and confidence rubbed off on me and I caught some serious waves under his guidance. The next day I joined a group class and had a blast. Very supportive atmosphere with great feedback. Also I love that it's woman owned with a focus on getting women up on their board!

I am a physically active person. I found iSurf because the winter snow season was over and I needed something else to do. I cannot say enough on the professionalism that I have experienced with the lead surf instructor, Thomas. If the session in Santa Barbara isn't looking good, he is kind enough to text me. I like that, especially since I live an hour away. I have learned a GREAT deal from Thomas and wouldn't be where I am today without his knowledge, expertise and patience. I HIGHLY recommend you give iSurf a call if you have the desire to learn how to surf.

Learning to surf through iSurf has been one of the best gifts I have given myself. The instruction is great, and it is very possible to stand up and ride multiple waves from Day 1. I appreciate that Thomas, the main instructor, focuses on techniques to build a solid foundation, and not interim easier ways for very short-term gains. From the start you can learn to read waves, understand and adjust for conditions for the most ideal surfing, oh and carry yourself with good etiquette on the water. Thomas also invaluably understands the right amount of push and support to give - enough to keep challenging you, but not so much of either such that it's unattainable or coddling. Thomas seems to understand, and adapts his teaching to what each person needs. This is key, since it takes some perseverance to get surfing.
And that's just the start. Like the other aspects of their lives, co-owners Thomas and Alelia fully put their hearts into iSurf. There are crazy-good surfing excursions and trips that are reasonably priced and well-planned to give awesome experiences all around. And then there's the Community. Through iSurf I have surfed alongside a diverse group of some of the best people, who are fun, intelligent, strong, and genuine, and we cheer each other along. I can't say enough that surfing and iSurf make you feel vibrantly alive and indulging in it!
Athena K.Group Surf Lesson (Men) April 23, 2015
I've shied away from surf schools in the past because of the unfortunate douche-y element that seems to pervade the industry. After learning the basics from an accomplished boyfriend, I figured I just needed to put the work in to get better. That's not exactly how it played out and despite tons of practice, I ended up frustrated with my lack of improvement. A friend recommended iSurf and I could not be more grateful! I typically prefer private lessons over group but the group lessons here are relaxed yet effective. I discovered I had developed some bad habits in my technique, and I learned how to make small adjustments that have resulted in sessions that are truly satisfying--I really feel like I get it now. The best part is there is zero douchiness. If you're interested in experiencing the rewards of surfing, but you're not trying to get caught up in the scene, check out iSurf!

My son went to the iSurf Summer Camp when we were visiting Santa Barbara last year and had a blast. The staff was very attentive and got him standing on the first day. He cannot wait to go back on our next vacation. Highly recommended!
Brandi S.Group Surf Lesson (Men) March 18, 2015
iSurf is amazing! If you want to learn to surf the right way with an instructor who is knowledgeable, encouraging and has a ton of patience then iSurf is for you!! I have had lessons with other surf schools but nothing compares to iSurf!!! I am actually surfing now! We go to different surf spots and experience different surf breaks!! ISurf is awesome and I recommend any woman who wants to learn to surf go here!
