That’s understandable, but remember, you’re not alone. Paddling out in the ocean for the first time is scary for anyone. Your enjoyment depends on overcoming fear through knowledge. Our surf coaches teach specific techniques to help calm the anxiety of paddling, surfer traffic, or getting caught in the white water. They’re skilled surfers trained in water safety, but also they’re empathetic and nurturing. Our goal is to mentally prepare you for all types of surfing adventures. You’ll enjoy a comprehensive surf orientation in our clubhouse before paddling out. The main focus is on safety, but we also strive to make the experience as rewarding and fun as possible.
Typically, we surf excellent conditions for mellow longboard rides, but we’ll prepare you for just about any swell. If ever the waves are too challenging, we’ll visit other surf breaks or kick around in the white water. Everyone is allowed to learn at her own pace. Our focus is on water safety, surf etiquette, local conditions, and technique. Beginners will start with the basics–paddling, turtle rolls, reading and catching waves, then standing up. Intermediate and advanced surfers can work on improving their techniques, gaining confidence, and riding waves more skillfully.
