At the surf spot we get suited up and head to the beach. On the sand, a safe and secure learning environment, the attention is on you. I explain how to handle the board in the water, how to select the best places to surf and which waves to catch, highlighting surf etiquette and ocean safety. You then try the proper techniques on land, paddling, the pop up and balance on your board. ..all the important things you need to know to be successful while staying on the best side of your fellow surfers. Surf’s Up! After taking a moment to soak it all in, we move into the water for the remainder of the 2 hours to make some memories, maybe hang ten, and certainly have a great time! Beside you the whole time, I am available to help you with feedback and pointers, to answer any questions to help refine your technique or simply ride waves together. This private surf lesson will vary based on your surfing experience. Whether you are new to surfing, or would like personal coaching to help you get to your next level.
