"I just want to help you have fun and be safe. I want to share all the knowledge that I’ve gained over eighteen years in the water to make it easier for you and to make the lineup an even better, friendlier place. I can’t wait for you to join me." - Kassia Meador


"Kassia is one of my all-time favorite surfers, because she approaches a wave with her own style, and we've had so many rad sessions together all over the world. Kassia's stoke and generosity has always inspired me, and her surfing is a beautiful reflection of who she is.”
Jen Smith, 2x World Longboard Champion
In my book, she’s the best female longboarder of all time. Maybe it’s the never-ending smile mixed with laughter that is so intriguing. Getting surf advice from Kass is like getting a baseball lesson from Babe Ruth. She’s a Hall of Famer that has a bigger picture outlook on life. In another lifetime, I’d like to comeback as Kassia Meador: the Queen of Surf and most epic of humans. 
Alex Gray, Pro Surfer
“There is no surfer who has had greater influence on my own surfing and life than Kassia Meador. Kassia’s surfing is what made me understand the meaning of style. She truly has paved the way for women’s long boarding and alternative craft riding. Her spirit is matched by her style. She’s one of a kind.”

One of the world's greatest longboarders answers all the questions you were too scared to ask as you begin your surfing journey in 16 videos that span nearly one hour.


Who is this course for?

The intro course is for individuals at the beginning of their surfing journey. The course covers topics ranging from leashes to etiquette to fin selection to properly waxing your board to the turtle roll, and catching waves – from whitewater to green waves. Ultimately, it provides an essential foundation of knowledge and answers a lot of important questions.

What does the Longboarding Fundamentals course cover?

The entire 16-chapter, nearly-hour-long curriculum is viewable below. The course covers: Kassia's philsophy on surfing, goofy vs. regular foot, the lineup and water safety, etiquette, board selection, fin selection, fin placement, wax, leashes, paddling out, the turtle roll, catching whitewater waves, and catching and standing up on green waves. The course concludes with a quiz. If you retained Kassia's wisdom from each chapter, you'll pass with flying colors.

What doesn't the fundamentals course cover?

The fundamentals course does not include more advanced longboarding techniques like bottom turning, trim, hanging five, hanging ten, hanging heels, and linking maneuvers together. All of these skills are covered in depth in the intermediate and advanced course. The fundamentals course ends once the student is able to stand up on a green wave.

What do I need for this course?

Just an internet connection. You'll obviously need to get a board, leash, fins, and suit to really surf, but Kassia breaks down all the knowledge she can to make your journey as friction-free as possible.

How long do I have access to the course?

For life, brah.

What currency is the price?

Prices are in USD, and the course is available at a one-time payment or installments.

What if I don't like it?

We really hope you love it! And we feel confident you will. There is no better surf instructor on earth than Kassia. Unfortunately, we’re not able to offer refunds.
