About Santa Barbara

It’s everything you thought it would be – and more. The only thing better than living in Santa Barbara is SURFING in Santa Barbara. Epic weather and a wide variety of waves to choose from make this the perfect spot to live your surfing dream. From point breaks to beach breaks, from reefs to man-made spots, waves of every type are just a short drive away from our HQ. We also have a wealth of local knowledge we are happy to share!

Santa Barbara Beach's waves

The World’s Safest Beach

We’ve been spreading the Aloha spirit from our “home beach” on Santa Claus Lane since 2000, making us the longest-tenured surf school on the Lane. SCL features an even sand bar, a consistent break, and a lack of hazards. Pop some NW and south swells into the mix, and what’s the result? World-class, learn-to-surf waves that gift us with perfect conditions for beginners to learn on. And for you intermediate and advanced surfers, we are mobile, taking you to the best spot for your surfing progression.
