Featuring personalized, one-on-one surf lessons with the legendary John Holeman.

John Holeman is a retired professional surfer with more than 50 years experience on a surf board. For the past 20 years, John has taught all levels of students at his surf school located near beautiful Cocoa Beach, Florida. John can meet for personalized surf lessons anywhere in Brevard County.

John is recognized within the sport of surfing as one of the great innovators in aerial maneuvers. He invented and successfully executed never-before-seen maneuvers back in the early 1980s, including the first 360 aerial.

John began surfing at the age of five. He holds several amateur and professional titles including Professional Rookie of the Year and a number of East Coast championships. He was inducted into the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame in 2012 in recognition of his contributions to the sport.

From those who have never been on a surf board to semi-pro and professional surfers, John has extensive experience coaching all levels of students.

It is John’s extensive experience and accomplishments that set John Holeman Surf School apart from others.  

John is thoughtful, concerned and committed to providing the best possible surfing experience to everyone he works with at all levels of surfing ability.

I am honored to know and work with John as he acutely understands the value of balance, posture and breathing as they relate to the surfing experience.
