  • The boards that we have are the best to help you learn. We will give you your wetsuits so you can change, apply your sunscreen and then you will be ready to head on to the beach to continue your first lesson. 
  • Once on the beach you will learn about your surfboard, how to control it, how to safely go out into the water and catch a wave...and then ultimately stand up and ride your wave to the beach!  If you are more advanced we will tailor the tuition to your ability.
