Surfing is an extremely thrilling and enriching sport but it is also very challenging and intimidating to learn. For this reason many beginners become frustrated after a few exhausting hours of paddling around and getting washed by the waves with little success. We offer surf lessons to help people feel more comfortable with a board in the surf. In this way they can overcome that initial stage in the learning process more quickly so they can experience the true thrill and joy that is surfing.
Lessons can be taught in English so they can have the comfort of learning a new sport with instruction in their native tongue or in Spanish so students can also acquire the Spanish language in an enjoyable, context-rich environment. The cost of surf lessons is $50 U.S. per person per session.
We rent a variety of boards to accommodate the style and level of each surfer. Rental cost is $10 U.S. a day, $50 U.S. a week and $150 U.S. a month.
