Surf and camp like a South Californian local! With Quinn you really experience the South Californian lifestyle like a local! His personalized surfing instruction met me right where I was at and his calmness and love of surfing were contagious. Our trip had behind-the-scenes, private access to famed Malibu beaches, and hiking in the gorgeous Santa Monica mountains. Because he goes the extra mile to make sure every camping location is ideal and surfing conditions are stellar, he made this trip truly unforgettable for me. The combination of surfing and camping was just amazing. Do yourself a favor and book it!

This weekend was definitely a highlight of my stay in Los Angeles. Quinn was everything one could ask for a surf instructor: patient, insightful, laid back and, of course, skilled. I loved camping under the stars and I want to thank Quinn for providing my first encounter with s'mores. I have nothing but positive things to say. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience the L.A. surfers' life.

I had so much adventure and fun! Quinn from Eat Sleep Surf is one of the best guides I've met. His laid back style and patience really makes learning easy. He knows his stuff and does a great job of keeping you safe but helping you push your limits. I'll be going on more trips I hope. I learn a lot and every one of them ends up being a great adventure.
