Our surfing classes are created with the intention of educating our participants in ocean awareness with a progression of skills that will help participants become proficient surfers. Introduction to Surfing covers the basics and Intermediate Surfing takes participants to the line-up where instructors will assist them with traversing the waves. Our new Stand Up Paddling program will give the basic information needed to join in on an activity that is easy for all.
