Become part of Heritage’s community of surfers young and old, beginner to advanced by learning to surf this summer in New Jersey. We have been giving surf lessons since we opened our doors in the 1960’s, and have built a community that crosses boundaries of age and skill. We have a passion to connect those who love surfing and seek to provide the know-how and support to develop the surf skills of anyone who has the courage to try!

We welcome you to join us for surf lessons or summer surf camp with experienced instructors and on the best lesson equipment available in the industry.  We offer lessons in Sea Isle, Ocean City (Rated America’s #4 Top Surf Town) and Margate where you can learn to surf in the friendly, sand bottom and fun-sized surf of the Atlantic Ocean this summer (a perfect environment to learn to surf).

Choose a location for either group or private lessons or summer surf camp. Surfboards and wetsuits (as needed) are provided for each student with a couple extras at specific locations or services (surf photos included in Ocean City group lessons and a goody bags for summer camps).

Group Surf Lessons

Our group surf lessons are focused on those who are complete newcomers to the sport and want to learn how to stand up on a surfboard and catch their first wave. More likely than not, you’ll be standing up within the first 30 min. of being in the water and the stoke will start to set in. The first part of the lesson is devoted to teaching the class how to get to your feet on land, with the next part spent in the water. Make sure to smile as we’ll also have a photographer on site taking photos (ocean city location only)  that will be posted to a gallery for you to download for free.

Private Surf Lessons

If you’ve outgrown our group surf lessons and/or just want some one-on-one time with a surf coach, we encourage you to sign-up for a one-hour private surf class. Private surf lessons are for any ability level or age and we can either provide a surfboard for you, or you can use your own.
