“If you are interested in quality surfing lessons, then call Sergio up. He is a great instructor! He is able to work with all levels and can change any bad habits that have formed over the years. I came to LA from NH to visit a friend and had always wanted to surf in California. We had SO MUCH FUN at our surf lesson. We worked hard but played harder haha. We even tried to schedule another lesson for the following day! If you want to get some surfing instruction while you are in the area, then Sergio is the way to go. THANK YOU SERGIO! I can’t wait to get home and try out my new skills!”

Thanks again for hooking me up with some great surfing last week. Thinking back, I think last week went really well – I lasted four straight days, got in lots of attempts and made out with about eight rides. You’re a real pro out there and I owe it all to you. Definitely looking forward to another trip soon…

So until next time, take care and have fun.

“When I met Sergio I had only surfed in the whitewater about 2 times and had absolutely no clue as to what surfing was all about.  Through a fun and detailed instruction process he was able to teach me all of the basic water safety, understanding of waves and the ocean, and basic skills to use when catching and riding (actual) waves.

After my first 3 lessons I felt comfortable enough to go surfing on my own and put my newly acquired skills to the test.  I now enjoy surfing everyday possible and feel calm and comfortable while doing it.  Thanks for all of your help and for opening me up to the wonderful world of surfing.”

“I just wanted to say a big thank you for the awesome teaching job you did with my and Lyndals surf lessons!! I honestly surprised myself with how much I learned in such a short amount of time and can’t wait to get out there and surf again soon (little waves only, please)! Instructor grade is an obvious “A”. – Thanks again!” – Alex, Toronto, Canada

“When my brother-in-law and I decided to start surfing, we wanted to work with a skilled trainer that could help us reach our surfing goals.  We were lucky to have found Sergio. With both of us in our late 30’s, Sergio adjusted his training regiment for our individual talents which accelerated our learning process greatly. Balancing a cardio-beach work-out, surfing, and paddling makes the training experience with Sergio a great experience, and excellent way to get outside and enjoy our local beach.” – Tom, Culver City, CA

“Hi, Sergio. April and I really enjoyed our lesson yesterday. It was a great introduction to surfing. I posted a few of the pics you took (thanks for doing that). Next time I want one riding a wave (I’m gonna train for it and eat more Wheaties for breakfast on that day)! – Thanks again.” –Ed, Utah

“Sergio is patient, trustworthy and makes the challenge of surfing fun. We had such a great time and improved as well. It was worth every cent to find such a knowledgable and kind teacher.” – Claudia, Texas

“I used to pretend to surf back in college, but I never really understood what the zen was all about.  I couldn’t even get to my knees, let alone my feet before the waves knocked me over and over and over and over.  Then I met Sergio!

His enthusiasm for surfing is so damn contagious. I thought it was truly impossible to get me out on a surfboard again, but Sergio made it happen.  He just really wanted to see me ride a wave, and he knew how to work with me at my level to make it happen.  He was patient and made me feel very comfortable in the water.  And when he actually got me standing up, I finally got an inkling of what that whole zen thing was all about.  On top of all of this, he’s just a cool guy (and hot too!).  Definitely check him out.” – Stephanie, Berkeley, CA

I loved my surfing lesson with Sergio!  He is very patient and encouraging, and has a great technique in the way he teaches.  My only regret is that I didn’t book a four hour lesson with him.   I didn’t want to stop.  The next time I am in Los Angeles I will definitely be calling him for another lesson. – Diane,  Salt Lake City, Utah

Learning how to surf with Sergio is truly a blast! He is very patient and will have you standing up in no time. Every lesson I took with Sergio would make me want to be in the water more and more. Big thanks to Sergio for successfully teaching me how to surf! – Zach, Texas –
