Stay Stoked was founded as a result of our passion for surfing and our commitment to sharing that passion with others! Sharing the ‘stoke’ with others through teaching is one of the most rewarding experiences in surfing. The connection and sense of community formed through this shared experience is what makes the surfing community so special!



Surfing is an exhilarating sport that requires dedication and practice to master. Good coaching is essential for surfers of all levels to progress and improve their skills.


Our coaching approach differs from traditional surf schools as we recognize that there is far more to surfing than simply standing up on a board. We understand that technical aspects of surfing can be challenging to grasp, which is why our coaching focuses on breaking down the fundamentals and providing individualized feedback to help our clients progress faster. Our coaches are not only skilled surfers but also exceptional teachers and communicators who are passionate about helping others improve their surfing. 


Whether you're a beginner or an experienced surfer looking to refine your skills, our team is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of coaching available. Join us in the water and experience the difference! #staystoked

"Being out in the water with a group of supportive surfers was such an amazing feeling. We were all cheering each other on as we made progress and improved our skills, and the coaches were just as excited and supportive as the rest of us. It really felt like a tight-knit family out there, all united by our love for surfing and the ocean. It's an experience I'll never forget and can't wait to do it again!

I recently had a  private surf lesson with Kc Schmidt, and it was hands down the best surf experience I've ever had! Kc was so friendly, knowledgeable, and patient with me as we addressed all my surfing flaws...


We started with some warm-up stretches on the beach, which helped me get ready for the water. Then, Kc gave me some pointers and tips on how to read the waves better, which was something I had always struggled with. I couldn't believe how much of a difference it made when I was finally able to catch more waves and ride them longer! Kc was also super supportive and encouraging, which helped me build my confidence and try new things. I learned how to turn and carve, and even ride the face of the wave, which was something I never thought I would be able to do!


Overall, I would highly recommend private surf lessons with Kc Schmidt to anyone who wants to take their surfing to the next level!
