Blue Wave Surf

The Full Story

Blue Wave was founded in 2010 by Stan Searfus with one goal in mind: 

Sharing his love of surfing with as many people as he could.


Stan was considered a legend in the local surf community. He'd surfed waves all over the world and always had a great story to tell. As head coach for both the local middle and high school surf teams, he inspired the next generation to love the ocean and surfing. 


No matter how old you were, how many times you had been in the ocean, how out of shape you were- Stan was always there, offering to push anyone into a few waves. 

Contracting the local high school surf students, Stan founded Blue Wave Surf Camp with the a strong sense of community.  He wanted to share his love of the ocean with as many people as possible- with the kids he had shared his passion with. 


Until the day of he passed in 2017, Stan was always encouraging others to get in the ocean and stay stoked. 


Since then, his wife- Jan Baker- has taken the reigns, and Blue Wave has remained committed to sharing our love of surfing with as many people as possible. With a strong sense of community, our surf camp and lessons are run entirely by local surfers who are dedicated to these same ideals. Located at Stan's Beach just south of the iconic Hotel Del, our location is a perfect place to learn due to it's soft, rolling waves.
