Surf + School

Hey parents! Remote learning got you down? Are you looking to get your kids out of the house but also need help getting the school work done? We have a solution for YOU! Our Surf + School Program will provide tutoring assistance for your kids while also providing the physical outlet they so desperately need.  Drop your kids off at the beach with their school work and our trained staff will spend the first half of the session (2 hours) helping your child with their work and we will then spend the second half of the session surfing, boogie boarding or doing some land games and exercises at a price that cannot be beat.As parents to elementary school-aged kids, we know that the remote learning struggle is real! We’ve designed this program to help ease the burden on parents while also helping kids get their school work done with the added reward of playing at the beach.  The program is set up to have no more than four students per instructor to ensure a more personalized and safe experience. Our instructors are trained to help kids from Preschool to Jr. High with both their homework and their boogie and surfing. With two convenient times, 5 days a week there is something for everyone. Instructors and kids will be wearing masks during tutoring. Kids will be spaced out on the beach to adhere to state and county safety protocols.

Thomas Oretsky

Hi! Thank you for checking out our program. I just wanted to give you a little background about me and why we created the SURF + SCHOOL program. I have two boys, the photo above is of me and my eldest son Avery taken while we were at the Surf Ranch Pro. Just like all of you, Covid has thrown a wrench in my family’s day to day work and schooling. Since I have more flexibility in my schedule I thought I would help share my time, along with my instructors time, to help with the burden families are faced with working from home while facilitating their children’s educations.  My wife works a full time job and we both know how difficult last fall was to try and keep our kids learning, preoccupied without a screen, and out of our, well her, Zoom meetings. This is where SURF + SCHOOL comes in.  I have a Masters of Science degree with a focus in wetland ecology and in the two and half years it took me to finish my degree I was a substitute teacher for both Jr. High and High School. Over the last 13 years as a surf instructor I don’t get to use my degree very much anymore, but I do use the tools I learned as a substitute teacher almost daily. Most kids just need a gentle guide to help them get their work going and answer the random questions when they get stuck. My staff, who are either college graduates or tutors themselves, are more than equipped to help kids to get through most of their school work. This may be a new program but if you check out our reviews here you will see that we have a stellar reputation and a ton of positive experiences working with people’s children. If you have any questions about us, the program or anything else please do not hesitate to contact us.

We hope you have a great day and we look forward to seeing you and your kids at the beach and in the water!
