Full description
Enjoy a truly unique Californian experience as you hop into a vintage VW campervan and head up north towards Malibu. Ride along one of the most beautiful coastlines in Southern California. Stop at Malibu Pier for a quick tour and at a few other great viewpoints along the way.  It doesn't matter if you've never surfed before or if you are an intermediate or advanced surfer, all of the guides are professional surf instructors and they will be happy to help you both on land and in the water. If you don’t feel like surfing you will still enjoy this experience by exploring the beach with its serene views and various wildlife. Surf and relax for a couple hours and then cook lunch at the van to renew your energy. You can also do a quick photoshoot with the van at different locations.

I booked this tour as a birthday present for my boyfriend. We had such a fun time. I highly recommend. Although the listing says that this tour could be with up to 6 people, we were the only 2 people on our tour with two surf instructors/organizers. They picked us up at our Airbnb and drove us out to a couple view points along the Malibu coast, including a walk out on the Malibu pier where we were able to grab a coffee. Since we are very much beginners, we headed to a quieter surf spot farther up the coast where the hosts gave us some surf tips and gave us wetsuits and surfboards. We had about 2 hours of surfing before lunch (hot dogs, chips, soda/water). They kindly were even able to accommodate my dietary restrictions (gluten free) and also had vegetarian options if needed. We were able to shower off at the beach and then headed back to our Airbnb in Venice. It was such a unique experience (we loved the van) and we had so much fun!
