Surfing With The Chef

A quintessential Southern California activity, the Surfing with the Chef Program is the perfect addition to your stay.   

Executive Chef Pierre Albaladejo will take guests from the kitchen to the beaches through this experiential package. Your day will begin with a morning in the kitchen with Chef preparing breakfast, followed by surf lessons at one of the local Carlsbad beaches, and concluding with a “toes in the sand” meal on the beach, prepared by Chef Pierre himself.

After lunch, guests will be presented with their own personalized longboard surfboard that will be shipped back home for them following their visit.
