What to Expect

When you arrive for your surf lesson you will be greeted by your stoked surf instructor(s). Before entering the water, your instructor will take you through an immersive and dynamic lesson on the beach. Your land lesson will include how to surf, ocean knowledge, and safety. All surf lessons are customized to experience and ability. Let the shredding commence! After catching loads of waves you will return to land where you will learn that the hardest part of surfing is taking off the wetsuit. You may shower off now, but the desire to return to the ocean will not wash away.

Surfing will teach you more than just how to ride a wave. The ocean will share lessons about self-confidence, independence, and appreciation for anyone willing to listen.
