We use two flat-water locations

We recommend for your first lesson that you learn on closed flat water.

Typically we teach our flat-water lessons on Carlsbad Lagoon, which is located in the North County coastal area of San Diego. Since we are completely mobile we will occasionally teach groups in Mission Bay, or private parties on whatever body of water that allows for Paddleboarding. If someone has previous paddleboard experience and/or prefers an open water lesson they may also be accommodated at one of our many beach locations. Open water Ocean Paddle Surf Lesson locations vary depending on swell direction and tide. We are completely mobile, so if there is a body of water closer to where you are and it allows Paddle Boarding, we can come to you!

Matt and I had the pleasure of paddling with an old friend of mine and owner of Fact_Activewear. He's created a pair of really great workout shorts that are comfortable, quick drying, have 4 way stretch and sneaky hidden pockets for your cell phone/keys. If you want to snag a pair of these shorts, made by the same manufacturer as lululemon, but for an affordable price check out his kickstarter campaign.
