Safety and Education

Skudin Surf is accredited by the National Surf Schools and Instructors Association
The NSSIA was created to form cooperation between surf schools for the purpose of sharing knowledge and teaching techniques combined with new ideas within its membership thereby furthering expertise in the professional surfing world.
Skudin Surf’s Cliff and Will Skudin started Surf for All with Jim Mulvaney in 2009 and have been volunteering with their staff and teaching surfing to hundreds of participants who would not have the chance to learn to surf from autism, cerebral palsy, visual impairment, MS, down syndrome, and more. They also offer volunteer surf outings with the Wounded Warriors, local MLK Center, and work closely with the Long Beach School District during the summer special education program.
Skudin Surf is proud to be partnered with the American Society for Dermatological Surgery and its Sun Safe Surfing initiative. The ASDS provides all our campers with UPF rash guards, and we’re proud to help them to educate our community’s youth on proper sun protection.
Skudin Surf proudly supports the Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit whose mission is to protect the world’s oceans and beaches. Surfrider is a very welcoming organization, and we applaud their efforts to support our oceans and all aquatic natural life. Find out more on their website at
