Feel confident that you are getting the best surf instruction available. I'm like the Captain of the ship. I have over 30 years experience, and when it comes to the ocean, experience counts!


For me, surfing is like riding energy from the sun. It is the only sport I can do for decades and not get bored.


I will be providing you with instruction that I have taught on the college level. Here's just some of what I will teach you in a one or two hour lesson.

  • Learn where and when to surf. Some spots are good in the summer and others in the winter.

  • Learn how tides effect the shapes of the waves. Some spots only break on low tide and others on high tide.

  • Learn what wetsuit is best for you. Wetsuits have come a long way since the 60's. The proper one will be the one that is warmest and most flexible.

  • Learn surfing rules and etiquette. This is a must for every surfer and will help prevent accidents and/or collisions.

We had a blast taking surfing lessons with Priscilla! She made sure to teach us the basics before we even went out to the water. In the water she helped us so much to make sure that we were successful. She even stayed longer than the time she was supposed to be giving us a lesson! She came back to check on us and was willing to allow us to rent the boards after our lesson. I’d highly recommend Priscilla and taking surfing lessons with her!


Great instructors and great people. My kids has 3 lessons and we’re up and surfing the first day. Highly recommend.


We booked a lesson while visiting LA for the weekend and it was a highlight of the trip! Priscilla was fantastic and taught us everything we needed to know for first-time surfers! She even got some great videos of us trying to surf a wave together!


If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Priscilla worked with my schedule to help me fit in a private surfing lesson while I was in town for work. The lesson included the use of a wetsuit and surfboard. It started on land to learn some basic skills and then once I was ready we went into the water. Priscilla was an excellent teacher and helped me quickly learn how to surf for the first time. I would recommend Malibu Longboards Surfing to anyone and if I'm ever in the area again I am definitely going to schedule another lesson with Priscilla. Thank you so much for the amazing experience and keep up the great work!


My wife and I took a lesson from Priscilla - and we loved it! It was my wife's first time out, and I hadn't been out in years. Priscilla made us feel comfortable, went through all the basic things we needed to know to get started in the water and have a good time. She helped us with timing the waves, when and how to pop up. She differentiated her instruction based on our ability levels which was so nice. After the lesson we had gained confidence and acquired some of the basic tools to keep working on our surfing skills. We will highly recommend Priscilla - and we will probably use her again ourselves this summer to continue improving.

Priscilla was amazing. Our kids (16 and 14) had a great time! We watched them and really saw the progression of their improvement from the beginning of the lesson to the end. It was an intense but fun two-hour lesson that got them closer to being surfers! Highly recommend!


Priscilla has been teaching our daughter for over a year and has been A-mazing. Patient but tough, funny but focused, and provides a safe and fun environment. She adapts each class to the surf conditions and our daughter's skillset and challenges her while being aupportive and positive. An all around awesome experience.


I was looking for a surf school and got recommended Malibu Longboards. This was the best rec ever! Priscilla is one of the best instructor. She’ll teach you everything you need to know about surfing. She’ll help you build confidence on your board while having a blast. Truly the best way to go if you’re looking to learn how to surf or even build upon what you already know!
