What you'll do

A private surf lesson will begin with an introduction on the beach and a few quick questions about your body dimensions, any prior surfing experience, and comfort level around the ocean and swimming. We will get you suited up in one of our brand new wetsuits and assign you a soft foam board tailored to your height & weight. We will then move on to beach instruction where you will have some time to acquaint yourself with your board and correct body positioning. We will also go over some water safety basics and practice the correct way to move from your stomach to your feet. Next, we'll move on to the fun part! I will walk you down to the Ocean and help you paddle out to where the waves will start to break. For the next 60-70 minutes, I will help you catch wave after wave and provide valuable feedback on correct timing, pop up, and weight distribution. I promise to get you up and riding, guaranteed! In a private lesson, you will have my undivided attention to not only learn how to catch waves, but how to read the ocean, correct your body positioning, drop in properly, and learn about the spiritual element of surfing.
