Did you know California’s coastal areas generate $1.5 trillion annually in economic activity? Perhaps that’s why the state has declared the first ever California Surfing Day for September 20. Whether you’ll be in the Golden State or not, we have five California resorts that can help you learn to cruise the waves like the pros in no time.
Exclusively created for Monarch Beach guests, Dana Point Discoveries’ programs include one-on-one surf lessons with designated “Surf Hosts.” These hosts are some of SoCal’s best surf instructors who are available to guests for assistance on catching the perfect wave. The private lessons are perfect for families, couples, or any individuals looking to hang ten on a pristine and secluded beach.
Official Surf City USA, Huntington Beach is home to 10 miles of uninterrupted beaches, and is the location of choice for many surfers. As the only resort with beach access in the city, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach is perfect for those looking to hop on a surfboard. Toes on the Noes is the resort’s resident surf school where guests can learn from the pros and ride the same swells as Kelly Slater. During winter months, the hotel offers a California Double package which kicks off surf instruction by Toes on the Noes and is followed by an afternoon of shredding the slopes at Snow Summit Ski Resort in Big Bear.
Hop on to your board with private or group lessons from seasoned pros at Blue Rider Surf. Top-of-the-line wetsuits and longboards are included with your lesson so you can look cool and stay comfortable when surfing the shores of the Santa Monica Bay.
Enjoy private or group lessons from seasoned pros at Learn to Surf LA. Surf lessons can be designed for all levels of skill and athleticism.
This new hotspot is not just home to an eye-catching design and luxury details. It’s also located just steps from “Queen of the Coast,” Rincon Beach Park which is one of the most famous surf spots in the state. Be on the lookout; you might just even trade waves with three-time World Champion and local, Tom Curren.
