What you'll learn in this paddle board class:

This clinic was 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!

Participants will begin with a land-lesson to learn about ocean awareness, wave breaks, ocean conditions, safety in and out of the water, wave etiquette, paddling, push up and pop up techniques, as well as riding waves and balancing. Then, students will move in to the water and start out in shallow areas riding the whitewater until they are comfortable with venturing further out. 

Our instructors are all CPR/First-Aid and lifeguard certified, and ready to teach you the basics of surfing. Participants can expect approximately 2 hours of water time in a 3 hour lesson – the start of the class does have some “setup” time built-in to get people suited up and down on to the beach, and the land lesson can take about 30-35 minutes. 

After surfing, we will get you out of the water in time to make it back to the parking lot by the “end time” of the class so that you have appropriate expectations of the class schedule.

We provide a safe and non-threatening environment for the beginning surfer – no angry localism here! Come have fun learning how to surf and explore the wonders of the ocean with our experienced guides.

Your clinic includes:
One or Two days, three hours per day (the lesson is always held on 2 consecutive days). All your gear is included – complementary surfboard & wetsuit; booties are supplied at our Pacifica location – wetsuit only (no booties) at our Santa Cruz location. If you have your own surfboard or wetsuit, you are welcome to bring them, we recommend all wetsuits are at least 4/3mm.

Your packing list:
We provide all the equipment for your surfing adventure! Just bring regular beach items: swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, snack & water.

Refund Policy
7-days notice. 8 or more days in advance, refund ok. within 7 days no refund or reschedules - forfeit.
