The adventure

This 3-hour clinic is designed with the beginner in mind – we welcome complete newbies as well as people who have tried surfing on their own for a while and still need help. We will walk you through all the basics to get you started and catching waves! The class starts with a short land lesson covering safety, paddling mechanics, and how to catch waves and get up on the board. After that we'll head out in the water and instructors will rotate around helping each person 1-on-1. You can expect approximately 1:45 - 2 hours of "water time" in the 3-hour total lesson. Please arrive 20+ minutes early! Parking costs $8 (subject to change). This is a group class, we cannot hold up others for late parties. Arriving late is same as a no-show and will forfeit your registration.
