What you'll do
We begin by greeting you and get you fitted with your rashguard, reef walkers, and leggings (women). We then assign you to your board and begin our land demonstration on the sand. We teach you technique, review all safety details, wildlife information, and answer any questions you may have. We teach you proper paddle technique, popup, how to safely fall, body positioning, as well as everything else you will need to know. From here we will guide you to the water, helping you along the way. We will get you situated in the lineup in the best spot to catch some great waves. Our instructors will push you on the waves and give you custom one on one coaching in the water. We will be with you every step of the way. After your lesson, we assist you out of the water and gather all gear. No prior experience needed, we are here to teach all skill levels and provide the best experience possible. GoPro video footage and high definition professional land photos are offered, so please contact us before your lesson if interested.
