Growing out of the lifelong obsession of its owner Ed Guzman, Santa Cruz's Club Ed Santa Cruz Surf School gives surfing lessons unlike any other. Lessons here are not just about riding waves, they also teach you the etiquette and philosophy behind surfing. All the instructors have years of experience under their belts and are all lifeguard, CPR and First Aid trained to ensure that your experience is safe as well as fun. Stand-up paddle lessons are also on offer.
Things to Do
- Lessons are provided for people of all skill levels from novices to wave veterans. These classes can be organized in a group or if you want you can book a private lesson with Ed himself! Depending on your skill level you will be taught all kinds of tricks, maneuvers and techniques to make your time on the waves as fun as possible.
- Alternatively you can take a lesson in stand-up paddle boarding that will see you master the fastest growing sport in the world in no time.
- Club Ed also offers summer camps at Manresa Beach. These week long sessions will have you up early to get onto the waves after a nice full breakfast. Food and a tent for camping are provided as are afternoon trips to local places of interest.
