With decades of experience, we have come up with a unique way of teaching people to surf!

Firstly, surf lessons are taught in the surf shop location with land instruction that covers proper surfing techniques, such as paddling, positioning yourself on the board, standing, wave selection, and surf etiquette. We will also discuss the day’s surf conditions and how they will affect the guests and ocean safety.

Secondly, when the in shop lesson is over students will go into the ocean to practice the skills they learned. When the practice time is over everyone will meet back in the surf shop, where the instructor will discuss what the students did well with and what they could improve on.

Lastly, after the 1 hour surf lesson, students may keep the equipment for 1 extra hour of independent practice time.


Other Activities:
