Surf Lesson Choices: Bargain, Private, Corporate, or Summer Camp

semi-private surfing group Arroway


We offer a seasonal (non-winter) adult-only group lesson, daily at 11AM for $99 each. This is a 90 minute ‘open’ lesson (which becomes a 1hour personal lesson (lucky you) if you’re the only one who shows up) Anyone 14 or over can jump in! Popular with solo travelers and people who sleep late : ) Staffed at 1 instructor per 4 surfers, it’s not for the frail and needy : ).


Our most popular surf lesson, perfect for families with young kids. At 2 hours, it’s a bit more time, and offers earlier (better) start-times and closer supervision than the ’11am bargain’. You may also ‘super-size’ your group w/ photos, lunch, t-shirts, and additional time. Typically staffed at 1 instructor per 1-3 surfers. Signup!

(It’s best to read this next paragraph as Gilbert Gottfried:) “Let the Banzai crew host your next team-building surf adventure. Two hours of (attempted) surfing is sure to help your ‘solutions driven interactive protocol, and impact the stakeholders’. Also, everyone will move the performance needle going forward, and be ‘robust’… ‘very robust”. (Ugh : )
