My Education, Surfing
Experience & History
Hi, My name is Matt Rosas. I have 30+ years surfing experience with 10+ years full-time
surfing from Baja, Mex to Santa Barbara, California. You can always ask me to know where and when you should surf in Calif
Penn State University,
I grew up in Palos Verdes, California and have been surfing since 1976.
I have been making, shaping, designing surfboards since the 7th
grade. I come from a family of teachers. My parents and
were all teachers/principal administrators for LAUSD. The passion for
teaching runs in my family. I have been teaching surfing full
time since 1999. Prior to that - I was in the corporate world for about
10 years with ACNielsen
Marketing Research as the District
Coordinator for Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara and Kern Counties.
My clients included Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Philip Morris,
Miller Beer, Revlon, Kraft Foods and other Fortune 500 companies. I
decided to leave the corporate world and follow my
passion—teaching others to surf. It is my life
Since that decision, I have been teaching surfing privately for a
variety of individuals and companies.
A partial list includes: Sony
Pictures, Fox Sports, ABC, WB, RedBull North America, University of
Redlands, Santa Monica
Language Center, Surfing Divas and many more celebs, locals and
visitors. For the past five years, I was also the surf schoolteaching
for Santa Monica College until the lastest Calif budget cuts. I
that each of these colleges, communities and companies interviewed
dozens of surf schools before selecting me.
No one cares more about
teaching you and
surfing or stand
up paddle surfing
properly and safely than me. When I arrive on the
beach - I am the best surf
instructor 20 miles
I look forward to teaching you surfing. thanks
