Southern California offers some of the best surfing spots in the United States, so you can practice speaking English while riding the waves! Students can pre-book beginner and intermediate surfing lessons with 4 lessons per week during their stay at CEL. The surfing lessons will take place after school at a prestigious surfing academy located at the local beach, just a quick walk or bus ride from school. Students will learn to hang ten with the pros, all while practicing their California surfer slang. Lessons typically take place every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, but can be scheduled 7 days a week to accommodate the student's schedule. Students will learn how to paddle out, how to stand on the board and how to catch a wave. Instructors work in small groups with students to ensure they get the most out of the time allotted. The surfing academy provides all necessary surfing gear including a wetsuit and surfboard. These surf lessons are for beginners and/or intermediate surfers.
