All lessons progress through the skills of surfing according to the students' abilities and previous experience. The instructors will start by checking the surf conditions with you kids and lead them into the warm up to prepare them for a session of surfing fun, entertainment and improvement. These lessons will cover the basics of riding a surfboard and how to catch a wave, surf awareness and ocean conditions (rips, currents, tides) all whilst the kids are on the beach.
The focus is to introduce them as a beginner surfer to the pure thrill and addiction of surfing a great wave, but also to educate them on the dangers of the ocean and the importance of fitness and safety. Techniques they will learn include: How to ride a surfboard, surf awareness, surf safety, warm-up and stretches.
The single session is a great introduction to surfing. We start you off in the rock pool, familiarising you with your equipment and learning to paddle, turn whilst sitting and lying and eskimo rolls. It's a great confidence builder before hitting the real stuff! Then it's off to the beach. We then get into the fun part of catching broken waves (or in plain English - the white foamy stuff) standing and riding to the beach.
