Since 1993, Malibu’s Surf Shop has been offering private surf lessons for people of all ages and skill level. The lessons are offered every morning at 8 and 9am with occasional 5:30pm appointments.

Every instructor has been teaching lessons for a minimum of three years, with most having taught for more than five years. We all grew up on the beach in Ocean City and feel that private lessons are the only way to go and make sure that there are never more than two students per instructor.

Lessons are cash only, based on the number of students in the lesson, and are subject to weather conditions.

We also offer surfboard rentals.

Please call 410-289-3000 to book your lesson or rental
