Instruction for first time surfers will focus on practical surfing skills before entering the water, including safety, etiquette, entering and exiting the surf zone, catching waves, standing up, and finally, surfing itself. The goal is to get comfortable with the movements involved on land and then transfer those motions to the water.

It is common for first time surfers to successfully stand up and catch a wave by the end of the first lesson. It is all about building confidence.

For surfers with some prior experience improving the motions and techniques of catching and surfing as many waves as possible.

Instructors are certified lifeguards and will be in the water ensuring that students are both having fun and remain safe.

Traveler Comments

Great experience.


Amit is awesome, we did our first lesson with him and it was great! We decided to rent a board and try it on our own later in the trip - big mistake!! You definitely need more than 1 lesson to surf on your own!

By far the best experience I have had in my life! My guide was very experienced and his helpers were so fun!
