Row of Life





How do your lessons run?
Surf lessons are 1.5 to 2 hours, and include all the equipment – soft top long board, leash and wetsuit. We spend the first 20 - 30 minutes on the beach going over how to pop up, water safety, surf etiquette and how to handle the board in the water, and we spend the remainder of the time in the water. Our primary goal is to get you standing and riding a white water wave within the first 30 minutes. Surfing is an extreme sport. We emphasize on SAFETY and having a lot FUN in and out of the water.

Does my lesson include equipment?
Yes, we provide a soft top surfboard with leash and wetsuit. You may bring your own wetsuit. For advanced lessons you may bring your own equipment.

What do I have to bring?
Bring a towel, drinking water, sun block, and a change of clothes. If there are no showers you may want to bring a large jug of rinse water (I prefer packing hot water on cold days). Bring a camera! Remember to hydrate before your lesson.

Is it safe?
Surfing is an extreme sport. If you don’t know how to swim then I cannot give you a lesson. We always check the surf report to make sure waves are not too big for beginners. We will postpone if it’s too dangerous to surf.

Will I stand up the first day?
My primary goal is to get you standing and riding a white water wave within the first 30 minutes! We will use the best technique that works best for you. We ask that you be determined, want to learn and have fun!

What if conditions are bad and we need to cancel?
If at any time we need to cancel due to unfavorable conditions, we will contact you immediately to reschedule.

What's the best exercise to do to prepare me for surfing?
Swimming, push-ups and burpees. Knowing how to swim is a preparation for surfing. Swimming will exercise many of the muscles you will use to paddle your board, it will improve your aerobic fitness, and it will increase your water confidence. Push-ups are essential in order to go from a prone lying position on the surfboard to a surf stance. Burpees will help you build the explosive strength you will need to go from a prone position on a surfboard to a surf stance. You will need this explosive strength to get to your feet.
