Our Story

Let's Go Surf School

Let's Go Surf School is a family owned and operated business founded by Carlos Zavala who has been surfing for over 40 years. In 2020 after Covid closed his entertainment business, it was time to pivot and follow his other life passion for surfing.  During the pandemic lockdown a few parents of his daughter's friends asked if he would teach their kids to surf.  Two kids turned into 20 kids and the school has blossomed into a fantastic service with patient and dedicated instructors.  With his past experience as an international student tour operator, working with thousands of students traveling for Summer Grad and Spring Break destinations, the surf school was a natural transition to working with groups of kids and travelers again. Having surfed all over the world, including trips all throughout Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, and Australia has given him the insight and wave knowledge to help you reach your surfing goals.
