Had a fantastic time last weekend for a group surf lesson with Malibu Surf Coach! It was so much fun! We did it for my friend's birthday! The instructors were so nice and so patient. The drone surf video that Steele Pace did of us was so epic!

We had these guys take us out for a birthday party and it was EPIC! They were super patient and helpful and we had a fantastic time surfing and spending time together in the water! Highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn how to surf!!! PS - If you get the option for the DRONE VIDEO get it. It's the most amazing footage I have ever seen!
Kristen B.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (1 person, 2 hours) May 19, 2017
My son, who is 4.5 years old took his first surf lesson with Chris. Chris was amazing, super patient, enthusiastic and could engage and keep my son's attention for over an hour in the water. He was super positive, fun and nurturing ...never pushing my son. Chris took his cues and the lesson was the best. My son had a blast and is asking to surf again with Chris ..we will absolutely be back. Chris is very professional and I would recommend him without hesitation. Thanks Chris!

I booked a private lesson with these guys for my first time on a surfboard. Easily booked online. Time was adjusted due to weather and tide. Parking was super convenient. We met at a gorgeous, pristine, almost completely secluded beach. Had the place to ourselves which was a HUGE bonus! They had a camera guy on hand to do drone video but, regrettably, I was a bit too shy to do that. I was extremely nervous because I'm in terrible physical shape and had never done this but Matt and Tony put me at ease right from the start. It was a good time from start to finish. I did this for 1.5 hours but would recommend doing two hours, and I'm not even in shape. Matt was super patient and encouraging and got me to my feet on the board! I highly recommend spending a day doing this whether you plan to really stick with it as a sport or just as a very memorable vacation experience. You'll walk away feeling so good! Best way to spend a day in Malibu.

Malibu Surf Coach is legit. as a wannabe surfer from NYC, I've previously taken a lessons with other surf schools when i was in town, but Chris and company are by far my faves. it was super easy to book my session online, my coach was great and we had a lovely beach break in Malibu pretty much to ourselves for the whole lesson. I also bought the add-on photo and drone video package, which wasn't that expensive and the footage was killer. i'd for sure recommend these guys.
Shauna S.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (1 person, 2 hours) March 8, 2017
I had an excellent surf lesson with Chris!! I have a bit of surfing experience but I was struggling with standing up in a timely manner. Chris taught me a few effective tricks and I was able to stand up quickly the first try and caught 5 amazing waves!! Now I'm a regular client of Chris and have reserved lessons every week in Malibu. We also have surfed some gorgeous, private beaches that he showed me!! The weather is also warm now and the beaches are breathtaking !! The workout I got was also incredible!! Thanks Chris!! Your Student, Shauna

Awesome guys!! If you're searching for surf lessons, you've found the best place! Both Chris and Robb are very knowledgeable and are solid with their craft. They take time to answer any questions you have and are constructive during the entire lesson. Both made me feel safe and relaxed. As a first time surfer, I wasn't sure what to expect, but after 3 lessons, I am a lot more comfortable and catching waves! Each lesson was at a different location in Malibu, and I loved the variety. I'm very happy that I found these guys and I'm totally positive you will be too.

Robb and Chris were the most fantastic teachers for my two friends and I who are locals to Malibu and yet have never surfed a day and our 30 year long life. We not only had a blast being led safely and enthusiastically into the water-- laughing harder than ever.. Robb is especially very funny, and has a natural ease to him and makes you feel comfortable, safe and like this is your time, A time to enjoy yourself not "prove" yourself.. If you're looking to really learn how to surf, he has the skills to pay the bills. Enjoy!

It's been six months since my first lesson through Malibu Surf Coach. These guys are legit, which is why I've been surfing consistently with them since June.
Born and raised in Southern California and I had never even attempted to surf until this year. Upon reflection, I'm SO incredibly grateful to have met both Chris and Matt and would highly recommend them as instructors to anyone, regardless of your age or level of surfing experience.
They'll provide you with the gear (if you need it), crucial safety tips and guided instruction (wave catching & riding techniques), both on land and in the water. They're knowledgeable and they listen, even if you're fearful of the waves, rocks, etc. They're calm and are such talented surfers.
I've surfed at Chris's private beach spot as well as at Broad Beach, in a group setting and one on one. These dudes are so chill, yet super reliable and I'm beyond stoked about the progress that I've made these last few months, thanks to their guidance.
Overall, I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Just do it.

I had a lesson with Matt about a month ago. It was such a good morning and great lesson that I've been getting out to surf multiple times a week since then. I see Matt in the water often and he's always so helpful and cool. He has seemingly formed a great little community of surfers in Malibu and I cannot recommend his course more highly!
Steve L.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (2 people) September 6, 2016
Me and my daughter had a lesson with Matt at Broad Beach, great beginners spot. Matt was super-friendly and gave us a great lesson, really enthusiastic and encouraging. Thanks!!!
Victoria S.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (1 person, 2 hours) August 27, 2016
Chris is by far the best teacher I've had. Super laid back, but incredibly attentive and informative on every level. I learned more about surfing physically and mentally than any other surf school i've participated in. You're definitely missing out if you don't take a lesson from the team at Malibu Surf Coach! :)
Glenn P.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (2 people) July 24, 2016
Chris and the rest of the Malibu Surf Coach team are wonderful people. We had lessons for three new surfers and their instruction was awesome. All of them extremely positive people with great knowledge for all skill levels. We felt welcome and had a fantastic time. Everyone from our group left with a new love for surfing and all of us can't wait until our time out on the water. Enthusiastic five stars!
David E.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (2 people) February 27, 2016
Had a blast with Chris #malibusurfcoach surfing off the back of his house in beautiful Malibu. The perfect wave kept rolling in, set after set. Chris makes you feel super relaxed and adapts his teaching to your level. As a beginner it was great having his undivided attention on all aspects of surfing and all communicated in a way which didn't make you feel like a kid at school. There can be a lot of ego involved in adventure sports and it's great when you can be new to the game and feel totally comfortable. we saw whales off the point and some Dolphins. Pretty amazing. Thanks man.
Marlene H.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (1 person, 2 hours) February 27, 2016
Chris has been one of the main reasons that I keep coming back to Malibu. I live in NY and now connect all my flights through LAX to surf.
I'd like to say that no other surf coach has guided me the way he has.
He helped me catch my first wave after many previous failed attempts.
He never made me feel like I couldn't do it and helped build confidence in me.
Thanks to him, I managed to feel comfortable even when I was scared to death to be out there.
I've had about 3 lessons thus far and and look forward to my next lesson. Chris is great at coaching and I highly recommend him!
Raffi A.Private Surf Lesson: Malibu (1 person, 2 hours) February 17, 2016
I recently reached out to Chris for a surf lesson. I had been surfing only once before, so I wanted to try it out again. I was looking for the one-on-one coaching experience so that I could really get up the learning curve.
Let me say this: Chris is the guy you gotta call for surf lessons! We spent about 15 minutes over the phone talking about my current experience level, ideal locations for a lesson, and days/times. Chris was very accommodating, and I could tell he really wanted to make sure we found the right surf spot to maximize the value of the lesson. We ended up meeting at Malibu Lagoon for the first lesson.
He showed up right on time, provided me with a wetsuit and a board, and we got started right away. I could tell I was dealing with an expert from the beginning. Before we even ventured out to the water, Chris spent some time assessing the wave patterns and pointing out the spots where the water gets deeper, the spots where there are rocks just below the surface, etc. He taught me the pattern of the waves and showed me how to look at the sets to make sure I understand everything.
We spent a bit of time on the sand getting comfortable with the board and with the pop-ups, and soon after we headed into the water to catch some waves. All along the way, Chris pointed out a number of subtle details that I would not have even considered otherwise, all of which were helpful in getting me farther up the curve.
By the end of the lesson, he had me paddling out on my own and catching waves. I've still got a long way to go (most of my time was spent in the white water), but I can definitely see the path towards improving my game and getting out to some of the "real" waves (green faces). I'll definitely be calling Chris for more lessons in the future.
