North County Surf Academy was inspired by the endless pursuit of better surfing. A bigger wave, a more hollow barrel, an unexplored break... but also by the pure excitement seen on the face of someone catching a wave for their first time. Whether you've never stepped foot in the ocean or your working towards your next National Surfing Title, I'm here to guide you. The surfing community has given me so much - and now I look forward to giving back by sharing my passion and knowledge with anyone willing to learn. I feel blessed to get to do what I love for a living and I thank each and every one of you for taking the time to consider North County Surf Academy for your needs - whether its a beginner lesson or a three day guided trip through Baja. You will find a few videos below of my personal surf edits, adventures, and projects I have been a part of. I'm just a quick phone call away if you have any questions or need a local recommendation.
