About Surf Happens Elite Teams
Surf Happens Elite Teams are designed to take your surfing to the next level. Our expert coaches specialize in the development of young athletes and mentorship within the sport of surfing. We start by establishing students individual goals, and skill level, and begin isolating strengths and places for improvement.
The Elite Program was developed by athletes for athletes and may be applied as Independent Studies Physical Education. Elite Team instructors are experts within the field of surfing. During each session we focus upon technique, goal setting, competition strategy, repertoire, along with building confidence and mental strength.

Jr. Elite & Elite
The Surf Happens Elite Surf Team meets several days weekly with a mandatory one day per week commitment. Location is determined on a session-by-session basis as dictated by the tides, wind, and surf. This assessment provides us with the ability to venture to the best location within 30 minutes of Santa Barbara. Participating team families will be notified of location by noon on each day of practice. Parents will provide rides to and from a set up location where we will pick them up and drop them off. In the case that a student lives outside of the area, parents will be in charge of getting them to and from meeting location.
