Surfers and wannabes alike, brush off your beach-speak and get ready: The Surf with a Legend package at California's Montage Laguna Beach includes plenty of wave time with two greats.

Participants will hit the waves with Pat O'Connell, a competitive surfer who was featured in “The Endless Summer,” and Jon Rose, a professional surfer and the founder of the eco-minded Waves for Water; the two will be the available for cocktail chatter at a mixer and barbecue as well. The package also includes tickets to one day of the Hurley Pro 2012 and two nights at the upscale Montage Laguna Beach hotel, covering a $50 daily breakfast credit and transportation.

It all starts Sept. 14 and, since space is limited, you'll want to book soon. (You might also want to visit riptionary.com, just to get your surf lexicon in check.) Prices are $1,270 for a single, $1,450 for double occupancy.
