In this lesson we will begin by covering surf terminology so that you won’t be in the dark when another surfer says “long period swell,” or “Outside!” We will continue by discussing surf etiquette so that you can avoid uncomfortable misunderstandings with other surfers. After that, we dive into navigating surf forecasts so that you can make informed decisions for your next surf session and score better waves! Next, we will talk about choosing gear, such as recommended surfboard dimensions, ideal thickness for wetsuits and reputable brands. We also discuss ways to cross train for surfing while you are out of the water. This is a great way to improve as a surfer even if you don’t have time for a surf session. Finally, we will conclude by answering your specific questions about surfing.

We provide a safe and non-threatening environment for the beginning 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 surfing and thought “no way”, think again! Lets catch some waves!
