What you'll do

A typical lesson will include an hour of instruction and board rental. We will begin with an introduction followed by a current conditions / marine life report. I will go over water safety and etiquette then we will begin stretching. Land class includes instruction of proper prone position, paddling technique, the "pop up", and proper stance. Depending on conditions, I will decide the length of instruction regarding "paddling out." (duck diving, log roll, nose dives, etc). I will assist each surfer with line-up placement and push them into waves if needed. All ages are welcome!
Large Group discounts available.

I have surfed the gulf coast for a decade and taught surf camps for multiple hotels on the beach. I have a deep knowledge of the local surf spots, conditions report, and marine life. My number one priority is the safety of my students. My goal is to share my passion of surfing with as many people as I can.

Great experience! We gifted the surfing lessons to our children (ages 14-22) - they loved it. Braden was professional, flexible and thorough. He first instructed them on the beach and had them practice there. Then he took them out in the water where he individually helped them with their timing, gave pointers and feedback and encouragement. He truly wanted them to succeed - celebrating each of their successes even though they couldn’t see him. Thanks for a great afternoon Braden!

Super fun experience. The host was very flexible and willing to shift to a different day than originally scheduled to catch bigger waves. I was pleasantly surprised that we were able to have an intermediate learning session on only 1-2ft waves in October! Very chill lesson and instructor!

Was an awesome lesson, just me and my friend participating, but lesson still happened. Did some basic exercises on the beach and then went to the water. The sea was pretty flat, but we were still able to catch some waves and surf a little. Awesome for a first timer!
