Aboutsurfing lessons northern california

Sandbar Surf Company, originally created in 1994 as the ESB Surf School, is California’s Central Coast’s premier surf school & rental company. Our specialized instruction & coaching, environmental appreciation, make our school an exceptional place to learn the basics of surfing, build confidence and skill as an intermediate, or master surf techniques – all while having fun!

What sets our school and training apart is our desire to help teach ocean awareness and surfing based upon techniques learned and borrowed from resources such as the French National Surf League, Billabong Surf Camps, years of personal surfing experience from our instructors and our philosophy of the environment. While standing up on the board is certainly a milestone for every beginning student to strive for – it’s not the most important thing you’ll learn in one of our lessons. The most important thing is to have fun in a great and safe environment! Additionally, we’d like every student to take away the tools necessary to not only learn how to surf and stand up on their own, but to also to have the ability to progress to whatever level of surfing proficiency they desire.

We teach our classes at the end of Park Avenue, which is a couple hundred yards south of the Pismo Beach pier. Our lessons are customized to meet every skill and ability level from the first time student to more advanced surfers looking to increase ocean awareness and master technique. Our services are available to locals and visitors, in either a private or group setting, 3 and 5 day camps, and we also have a variety of special surf-programs for local kids who want to surf year round.

Values, culture, respect and sharing are the basis of the services we offer all year round. Together and in partnership with local community members, Parks and Recreation throughout San Luis Obispo County, local hotels, the Pismo Beach RV Resort, and with Billabong Surf Camps, we’re committed to sharing and passing along our knowledge and providing the absolute highest level of service possible in a safe and fun environment.

Our unique and dynamic approach, fun and entertaining instructors, combined with the highest quality surfing gear, has earned us the recognition and loyalty of our students. We’re excited about surfing, teaching and sharing our passion!

We’re looking forward to sharing a few waves with you soon.

FAQ

How many students are in a group lesson?

Anywhere from 2 to 5 students! If you have a group larger than 5, we will add an instructor to keep the student/instructor ratio to 5/1 max.

Do I need to have at least one other person with me in order to sign up for a group class?

No you don’t! We can schedule you with other students, or you might get a private, but in any case, if you sign up for a group class, we will teach it.

Do I need my own gear?

If you have your own, you’re more than welcome to bring it and use it. Otherwise, we do provide all the gear you need: surfboards, wetsuits and rash-guards for any size and any skill level.

What should I bring with me?

SandBar Surf

Every student should bring a bathing suit to wear under your wetsuit. Bring plenty of sun screen, water to keep you hydrated, and a towel. Sandbar Surf Company sells a few great things to help remind you of your beach and surfing experience such as T-Shirts, Beach Towels and Reusable Water Bottles….so you might want to bring cash or a credit card too!

How can I pay for my lesson or merchandise?

Payment can be made online through our website or if needed, in person at our office. To make a cash or check payment, please call 805-835-7873 to arrange. No cash or checks can be collected in the parking lot or on the beach.

Meeting point

Students meet their instructor at the time of the class (10am, 1pm or 4pm) right by the showers at the beach parking lot of Park Avenue in Pismo Beach. At the end of the class (12pm, 3pm or 6pm), the students will be back at the same meeting point. Past this time, parents/guardians are responsible for their kids.

Instructors will wait 15 minutes for a late student, and then will head to the beach to start the class. If a student arrives after the start of the class, the instructor might not be able to let him crash (for safety reasons, the other students cannot be left without supervision).
