Place: Mondos (1 mile south of Faria County Park on Pacific Coast Highway)
4350 Pacific Coast Highway, Ventura, CA 93001-9759
Contact: John McElwain, (661) 362-3494; Adam Kempler, (661) 362-3266.
Event: Students in this class will take field trips to Faria Beach to test their surfing skills in the water, accompanied by their instructor, Adam Kempler.

Field trip dates are subject to change due to the lack of surf or dangerous surf.
Note to Editors: Intro to Surfing is a new class at College of the Canyons, and is extremely popular. This would make an interesting story about how some Santa Clarita residents are escaping the summer heat.
