Private Surf Lesson in North San Diego

star-5

Surfing can be the most incredible experiences. Surfing takes practice, patience, and will leave you with a better appreciation for the ocean. You will meet me down at the beach where I will have the surfboard, leash, and a wetsuit to keep you nice and warm! After going over safety precautions and etiquette about being a beginner surfer, we will begin teaching you proper paddling technique, the pop-up, as well as how to reach the lineup. Once we have gone over the basics on the beach and we practice a couple times on the sand, we are ready to hit the water! I will be with you the entire time, not surfing like so many other instructors do these days. I want your time to be spent truly learning how to surf and not just struggling while I get paid to have fun! I begin my lessons helping new students get into waves to practice their pop-up, giving critique when needed. After a few good practice waves, I usually start "helping" less and less, not pushing you into waves as hard.
