GoSurf is a mobile application that connects you to resources in the surf industry! Need a surf instructor? Find one on GoSurf!
The app works by listing a number of different resources on our platform. For example, if you need someone to take photos of your surf session, browse our database of surf photographers in order to find one you like best!
Booking a session with GoSurf is simple! Find the resource you’d like by clicking our “Surf Photographers/ Surf Videographers/ Surf Instructors & Coaches” buttons. Look through all the options we have available, and when you find one you like, click “Book Now”. This will allow you to schedule your session with our scheduling tool!
If the individual you booked doesn’t show up, don’t worry, your payment will be returned! Please enjoy your session without the scheduled resource and contact us after so we can make things right!
The best time to book a session is as soon as possible! Get after it! On a serious note, this is a loaded question and depends on conditions, skill level, and time available. Keep an eye out for wind, wave size, and ocean temperatures. Additionally, communicate with your instructor/photographer on what you are looking to get out of the session.
GoSurf is currently operating only in Southern California. We hope to expand soon! Let us know where you are from! We are looking to expand our database of surfers, shapers, photographers, videographers, instructors, coaches, and more!
Each resource in our database is priced differently! GoSurf is currently charging a small service fee on all connections made on our platform ($5 or %10 based on the listing).
If you are seriously injured and need medical assistance, call 911 immediately. Non-serious injuries should be dealt with properly with the assistance of lifeguards or a first aid kit located in your vehicle. Keep in mind, while most surfing sessions leave you with nothing but a smile, the sport can be extremely dangerous. GoSurf is not responsible for injury, death, or lasting traumas that can occur during a session.
Communicate with the resource you are meeting up with and let them know that you are running late! Those who choose to list themselves on our platform value their time highly, be on time or you may pay for it!
If your photographer or instructor is running late, they are still obligated to shoot or instruct for the agreed-upon time and should adhere to this agreement and stay late. Please contact us if you experience any difficulty because of a late instructor or photographer.
On the GoSurf app, we have pre-determined meetup locations for individuals to meet before or at the beginning of their sessions! Look for the “Meet up locations” on the app and follow the maps! Most meet up points are at the entryway to the beach where you are meeting!
