Vad du kommer att göra

I'm flexible to teach surf lessons 7 days a week. Message me with a date you're interested in, and I'll check to see if conditions will be good to go surfing!

Come paddle out with me! You'll learn how to read the ocean and how and why waves break. You'll be given instructions how and when to stand up, navigate the lineup (area where the waves are breaking), as well as where to paddle out, and paddle in safely. I will take us to a great area for beginning surfers somewhere up and down the coast other than Cowell's Beach which is generally too crowded for beginners. This location will depend on the tides/winds and waves the day of your lesson. I will aide you in catching your first waves so that everyone gets to ride waves their first day. Most of you will be able to stand up your first day and feel the rush of riding Nature's energy in a truly pure form.

I will also do my best to capture some of your rides using a goPro camera so that you have a photographic souvenir of your experience, and I try to send everyone at least a few pictures from their day surfing - no extra cost!
Other things to note
Most surfers wear nothing under a wetsuit but, I find beginners like having a bathing suit underneath. Have a bathing suit underneath your clothes, and bring a towel to change with. Bring sunscreen, driver's license/credit card to rent a wetsuit.

Hi There,

I have a passion, and experience great joy seeing people new to surfing catch their first wave, and stand up for their first time. The smile on their face lets me revisit the first time I got to experience the joy and excitement of surfing.

I became a meteorologist to understand and predict when the waves/weather will be good. Luckily, I was able to make a career of it, forecasting weather and waves for ocean going ships and site specific forecasts all around the world. I've been fortunate to travel to the world's best right hand, and left breaking waves as well as some of the most challenging big wave spots around the world.

I look forward to giving you the opportunity to safely enjoy the sport of surfing in one of the worlds best locations... Santa Cruz!

Var ni kommer att vara

We'll be surfing somewhere up and down the coast at a break other than Cowell's Beach which is often too crowded for beginners these days. I will select the ideal location based on the tides and waves of each particular day so that we're at the best spot for you to catch your first waves, and hopefully stand up for your first time!

Had an amazing time surfing with Dan! Very friendly, experienced and knowledgeable, Dan was super helpful to get going after a couple trials on my own. He helped me understand the theory behind surfing (when to catch waves, where to be on the board when paddling out/standing up, how to cope with (strong) current, etc.) and gave me confidence to go after bigger waves during winter time. Thanks for taking time to share this passion - and for pushing to get some extra waves!

Such an excellent surf guide in Santa Cruz! This is a super experienced guy who knows the area. Very friendly, fun to surf with, helpful at catching the right waves for the learner. He is also a meteorologist and his knowledge of ocean, weather, and tides is remarkable. He surfs Maverick and he definitely knows what he’s doing out there. Great experience, great value, would repeat in a heartbeat

Dan is amazing, natural teacher and brings a depth of experience and passion for surfing that made this experience really special. He spent time with my two children 10 & 13 and both of them had a blast and learned a lot.

My son and I had a blast. I’m 6’5’ 245 and Dan was even able to get me up on a couple waves

Dan's surf lesson was excellent. He was very friendly, lent me a wetsuit and surfboard, and took us (we were a small group of 5) to a beach a bit away from the other touristic spots. We were all beginners and he was clearly watching over us, helping us to get waves and to improve. I would highly recommend Dan's course over many other available commercial offers with larger groups.

Dan is a fantastic surf teacher for first timers, my teenage kids had a great morning surfing with him for their first surf experience ever, and I would recommend his lessons to anyone!
