About your host

I began surfing as a gay teen in Santa Monica. I helped produce "OUT in the Line-Up," an award-winning documentary about LGBTQ surfers working to change the misconception that gay surfers don't exist. watch on hereTV https://www.heretv.com/out-line

What we’ll do

Join me for a loose, fun day of learning to surf. Together, we'll connect with the ocean and explore Venice's surf culture from a queer perspective. First, we'll fuel up with coffee and açai bowls and chat about the day's surf conditions. Then we'll hit the beach for some surf instruction at a calm, uncrowded break. By day's end, you'll understand why Venice attracts surfers from around the world.

What else you should know

Beginners welcome, but you must be in good shape and able to swim.

What I’ll provide

Equipment
I provide Boards! We'll rent wetsuits from the surf shop next to The Cow's End.

What to bring

Please bring a beach bag with plenty of sunblock, water, snacks, towels and a change of of dry clothes for after surfing. If you need to rent a wetsuit, I’ve got the hook-up for you!
a wetsuit!

Where you'll be

Venice Beach is the epicenter of LA's laid-back surf culture. We'll meet for breakfast at The Cow's End Cafe, one of my favorite local spots. After our time on the water, we'll grab burgers and beers or hit Gjelina, an upscale pizzeria where Beyoncé and Jay Z have been seen dining.

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).
