So you made the decision to learn to surf. from this moment forward your life, outlook and world will change. surfing is the ability to feel free, to be and to move with nature. The ability to exercise whilst enjoying the outdoors, Its making friends, building Ocean awareness and feeding your soul.
It can get pretty confusing and hard to understand what level your surfing is at. We have broken down surfing “levels” into 3 easy to understand categories (there are more “levels” but for what we are teaching, these are sufficient). We do ask guests to inform us of their current level in advance, but we also assess all of our guests during their first session to verify what level they are on and how we should proceed instructing them for the rest of their trip. Here are the levels
We’ll start from the basics and teach you how the surfboard works, proper paddling technique, placement on the surfboard and introduce you to the basics of “pop-up” technique, water safety / ocean awareness, surf stance (Goofy or Regular foot), white water rides.
We’ll teach you the terminology like: impact zone, the line up, take of zone, backside, front side and together we’ll paddle out to the outside.
You’ll learn to catch open faced waves on your own, “bottom turn” and “trim” on an open faced wave, or “grab your rail” while trimming on open faced wave.
You can read the waves and locate good catch-able waves on your own, can bottom turn and do “S” turns on the open face, can perform “cutbacks.”
Now can perform cutbacks and off the lip maneuvers.
