What you'll do
Beginner surfing classes are a great way to learn the basics and catch your very first waves! Instructors will teach you the pop-up technique and safety basics on the beach before heading out into the ocean for an hour of catching waves with an instructors help! For Intermediate surfers, we offer more advancing coaching (learning to duck-dive, bottom turn, cutback and more!) We also offer Paddleboarding classes where you'll learn the proper technique to ocean paddleboard, enjoy some quality ocean paddling time with instructor supervision, and maybe see some dolphins if you're lucky!
