Our Surf Programs

We welcome you to join us!

On Wednesdays and weekends in the Spring and Fall, our community gets together to connect with the ocean and surf. In the winter we rest and prepare for the next season. SPRING REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!

Our community surf programs are for girls, women, and gender-expansive people seeking women centered spaces. For beginners, we introduce you gently to all elements of surfingfrom wetsuits, to board safety, to learning how to be in the ocean. Those who have surfed before can continue to work on their skills and enjoy the great community vibe. All equipment is provided + carpool from Oakland available.

Year at a Glance

We are excited to share the dates of our 2023 Spring and Summer programs! Registration for programs will be staggered this year in an attempt to reduce waitlists. Please see the Program Calendar (left) for all enrollment and program dates.

Making Surfing Accessible to All

We acknowledge that financial barriers to surfing and accessing the coast impact our community. Brown Girl Surf is committed to making surfing accessible to everyone so all our programs are offered on a sliding scale. 

No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Please contact if you would like to discuss how BGS can support you in joining us at a program.

The costs to us as an organization for running our deeply intentional, covid safe, and community-focused surf programs is over $400 per individual per session. We ask that anyone who can contribute at the top of the sliding scale range, do so, so that we can continue to make surfing accessible to all.
