I am 5th generation Portuguese-Hawaiian, born and raised on the island of O'ahu.
I was pushed into my first wave by former world surfing champion Fred Hemmings when I was around 5 or 6, and have been in love with the ocean ever since. Although I am definitely not a pro, I have been sponsored by a few companies over the years and I am very experienced.
I won a surf contest in Chile in 2003 and have appeared in a surf video put out by Ladera skateboards.
Surfing has dictated the direction of my life since "grommet-hood." I studied at UC Santa Cruz because of the school's proximity to quality surf. I studied linguistics in Chile because the country is known for its long, empty waves.
I took a year off and lived in Tahiti in order to improve my French, and surf powerful Polynesian barrels. I teach and translate languages online www.WestLALanguageTutor.com cause I can't bear to miss good waves working a 9-5 job.
I surf daily and have taught countless friends and friends of friends and their friends too over the years. I almost always manage to get them up and riding the very first time we go out. I can help any age and ability level. I am patient, easygoing, and kids love me.

Nick Fowler, Owner and Operator
I include everything from instruction, to a wetsuit and a surfboard. All you have to do is show up ready to shred the gnar brah! Renting gear elsewhere can be really expensive. Ask around!I charge a flat rate of $10 for everything.
I live 3 minutes away (walking) from the beach in Venice. If there is no parking I will provide you with a space in the back for free (unfortunately parking in Venice is no joke during the summer and rather expensive). You will have an extremely hard time finding a more qualified instructor in Southern California.
