    BEGINNER PRIVATE SURFING LESSON

    For first time surfers or those who’ve tried it a few times and are still trying to get the hang of it.

    We’ll start with a quick 20-minute land lesson at our surf school where you’ll get a proper introduction to the sport of surfing and learn everything you need to know before hitting the waves. Then we’ll drive you a half mile down the beach to a secluded surf spot away from the crowds. Once in the water, instructors will help you to catch waves, get you to your feet and keep you safe and having fun through out the entire lesson. *All instructors are CPR and Lifeguard certified by the American Red Cross

    Topics: Positioning yourself on the surfboard, paddling techniques, how to maneuver over waves, turning the surfboard, how to get to your feet, proper surf stance, balance techniques, safety rules.

    Lesson Includes: transportation, surfboard, rashguards, reef shoes and leash

    INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED PRIVATE SURFING LESSON

    Our instructors who are all expert surfers will talk with you about what you’d like to improve on and assess your skill level. Then you’ll be taken to the most suitable surf spot for you on that particular day.

    Our goal is to help take your surfing to the next level! *All instructors are CPR and Lifeguard certified by the American Red Cross

    Topics: Wave selection, positioning in the line up, different paddling techniques, catching waves, wave knowledge, surf etiquette, how to paddle out through waves, surfing bigger waves, advanced turning techniques, building speed on the wave, advanced maneuvers (floaters, snaps, off the lip, cutbacks, noserides, cross step, drop knee-cutback, how to get barreled, etc.)
