Monday - Friday: Surf Classes
This course includes all the necessary equipment to begin the exciting sport of surfing! Boards, wetsuits, insurance, dressing rooms, and even warm showers all right there next to the beach. Learn from qualified instructors, experienced in teaching surfing to people of all levels. All instructors are certified in ocean rescue and life saving and have spent their entire lives reading and judging ocean conditions. With their assistance, you'll be up and surfing in no time! Classes start with exercises on the beach and basic water safety instruction to ensure the students can practice in a stable, safe environment before taking to the waves. Once the students feel comfortable and understand the basic water safety rules, its surf time! The course takes place on Zurriola beach, an excellent area for all levels of surfing. Varied sandbars ensure that students will be able to surf in areas best suited to their abilities. Classes last approximately one hour but generally will encompass the entire afternoon after taking into account changing into wetsuits and the mandatory post-surf beach side conversation.
