Adventure Out teaches our SUP surf lessons in the San Francisco Bay Area in Pacifica at Pacifica State Beach where we are the city licensed school. Beginner SUP Surfing is our 2-hour intro/private SUP surfing class.  The lesson is run as a “one on one” only.  It is also required that you have taken our two-day surf clinic (or equivalent experience) as a prerequisite in order to do SUP Surfing. This lesson was designed with the beginner SUP surfer in mind that already has some regular surfing experience. We will walk you through all the basics to get you started and catching waves!

* 2-Hour Private Clinic: $199

Participants will begin with a land-lesson to learn about ocean awareness, wave breaks, ocean conditions, safety in and out of the water, wave etiquette, paddling techniques, as well as riding waves and balancing. Then, students will move into the water and start out in shallow areas riding the whitewater until they are comfortable with venturing further out. Our instructors are all CPR/First-Aid and lifeguard certified, and ready to teach you the basics of surfing. Participants can expect approximately 1-1.5 hours of water time in a 2 hour lesson – the start of the class does have some “setup” time built-in to get people suited up and down on to the beach, and the land lesson can take about 30-35 minutes. After surfing, we will get you out of the water in time to make it back to the parking lot by the “end time” of the class so that you have appropriate expectations of the class schedule.

We provide a safe and non-threatening environment for the beginning SUP surfer – no angry localism here! Come have fun learning how to surf and explore the wonders of the ocean with our experienced guides. If you have ever thought about catching waves on your SUP then this is the first step!
