  4. Teen Group Surf

    Comments Off on Teen Group Surf

    Whether your teen is a beginner, intermediate or more advanced surfer, this 3-hour class can be customized accordingly.  New surfers will do a brief tutorial on the sand before heading into the water while more veteran groms will head immediately into the ocean after a short warm up. Next, the group is broken up and assigned to various instructors (with a guaranteed 4:1 ratio however we are often at 3:1) so that we are always providing customized instruction. As long as weather and surf conditions cooperate, we will only take a short break. If for any reason that is not possible and we need to spend time on the sand, we then use it as a way to practice exercise drills that can help with strength and balance while surfing, or even ‘games’ that help students get more comfortable in the ocean. In addition, if there are small waves, we may do paddling drills and in water games. If the surf is large, but still safe to have class, we may take surfers into the water 1 or 2 at a time. The Teen Group Surf class occurs at the same time as the Kid Group Surf Class. We will break the Teens and Kids into separate groups in the ocean, however, they may intertwine in the ocean because of the nature of surfing being in an open environment and depending on the conditions, we may have only a small surfing area. Please note: If instructors feel it is necessary to combine the Kid/Teen Group Surf Class for safety or for any reason, they have the ability to do so.
