Herman

I have been working or playing in the outdoors all my life. I grew up surfing in Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks as a kid. As a teenager, I worked for the Virginia Beach Lifesaving Service as an oceanfront lifeguard, which gave me basic first aid and safety skills and cultivated a deep awareness, respect, and understanding of the ocean. After high school I started my surfing travels and have since surfed Puerto Rico, Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, the Canary Islands, Australia, Indonesia, Barbados and Canada. I have taught people to surf on four continents. I have also thru-hiked the Colorado Trail, a 500-mile backpacking trail across the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. As an outdoor educator, I worked for the Costa Rica Rainforest Outward Bound School in Central America.

What's included

Equipment
The lesson includes a surfboard, leash, first aid kit and wetsuit if the water is cold.

Where you'll be

We will Learn to Surf on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in the Atlantic Ocean. I will check the surf early morning and look for the best beginner waves and sand bars to have an incredible experience learning to surf.
