Determined to teach people of all ages the ultimate way to make music with the ocean every day, Steven "Sli Dawg" Chew became a coach at the Laguna Beach Surf School. Popular for his humor and artistic perspective about surfing, he shows his students the basics of riding a wave without forgetting to have fun, even if they become pros. Paying an hourly rate of $80 for private surf lessons might seem a bit steep, but this waterman's time is definitely worth it. The fee includes equipment; mind-opening lectures about marine biology, physical fitness, water safety and ocean awareness; and tons of laughter and fun at the mesmerizing beaches of Laguna. Along with Billabong, Sli-Dawg has founded weekly surf camps that take place during breaks and offer lessons for kids with genetic diseases and other special conditions.
