our students say
I took up surfing in Los Angeles as an escape from the Covid mundane in 2020. What I wasn’t expecting was how much I learned, improved and ultimately fell in love with the sport… all thanks to Steds! His understanding of the ocean is so impressive. He coaches everything from reading the wave, paddling in, where to look, hand and foot placement, the pop up, turns as well as instilling confidence and feeling the calm of being in nature. Aside from being an incredible surfer and teacher he is an all time legend, beautiful friend and a positive energy that knows no bounds.
