What you'll do

We start with a 25 minute land and safety lesson, showing the guest on how to get up. Figuring out what stance you are and what knee and foot to bring forward first. I show them a few times and then my guest try about 2/3 times each so they build muscle memory and replicate it out in the ocean when they catch their waves. Then we go over all the safety rules after the Land lesson

What takes a long time on learning on how to surf is knowing how far out to be and what waves to catch and paddle for. That’s what my instructors and myself specialize in. The positioning, timing and where to sit to catch the best waves. We coach the guest into every wave. The total length of lesson is 1hr 30min.
