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 while providing the know-how and support while developing skills of anyone who has the courage to try!

We welcome you to join us for surf lessons from experienced instructors on the best lesson equipment available with a company that brings integrity and professionalism to the surf learning experience. Come visit one of our stores in Sea Isle, Ocean City (Rated America’s #4 Top Surf Town) or Margate  to surf the Atlantic Ocean with a friendly sand bottom and fun-sized summer waves (a perfect environment to learn to surf).

Choose a location for either group or private lessons. Surfboards and wetsuits (as needed) are provided for each student.

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.
