Our Core Values

Safety is our #1 priority

Our Surf Instructors/Specialists have years of surf and open-water ocean experience , as well as being CPR/First-Aid certified. We are genuinely passionate about “quality over quantity” and therefore safety is our #1 priority.


We Pursue Excellence

We emphasize the most elite quality surf programs, completely individualized to meet your needs.  Our Surf Instructors/Specialists also have backgrounds in the Behavioral and/or Mental Health fields. You can definitely feel rest assured that you are in the hands of exceptionally highly skilled staff.

We Practice Mindfulness

We take therapy out of the room and into nature. By focusing on being in the moment, building self-esteem and self-efficacy, surfing can be a truly therapeutic and transformative experience.


We Create Alternatives

We provide opportunities to make new friends, practice social skills, learn stress management techniques, increase gross motor skills, improve executive functioning skills, muscle tone, and spatial awareness…all while having fun learning surf skills in a nurturing environment.
