Surfing & Ice Cream

Ahh surfing, the ultimate summer thrill. Just you, the ocean and plenty of sun. Whether you've surfed before, or this is your first time, you're sure to have fun and learn a lot (maybe even hang ten?).  Join us on Saturday, August 23rd to learn the basics of surfing, or brush up on your skills during a private lesson in Ocean City.

After a bit of instruction on the beach including safety, technique, surf etiquette, etc., we will take to the water.  Enjoy this private lesson with a 2:1 student to instructor ratio, and plenty of personalized attention and supervision! Group lessons down the shore can often be quite large with a higher student to instructor ratio (usually 4:1).  Whether you are 18 or 60+ years old - everyone can learn how to surf!

Price: $60 includes all arrangements and logistics; 1 hour private surf lesson with instructor; use of a wetsuit and soft, safe surfboard; an added half hour solo practice with the provided surfboard and wetsuit; and a TerraMar guide certified in first aid!

What to pack: swimsuit, sunscreen!, water for hydration, a towel and a change of clothes.

The specific address and directions of the meet-up location will be provided only to registered and paid participants a few days prior to the event.  The class size is limited to 15 to ensure adequate personal instruction, and the first 15 to people register and pay will go.

*Act fast as the instructors require advance notice and RSVP's will close 7 days before the event date.

-We require payment in advance for all of our events to secure a spot
-Please visit the event page on the TerraMar website to register and submit payment
-If you haven't already registered on the TerraMar site, you'll need to do so to process your payment. Once you've registered, go to the calendar, find the event, and click ‘register’ in order to proceed with online payment. 
- A 'yes' RSVP on the Meetup site does not reserve or secure your spot!!


*Paid and officially registered: 
1. Leora (guide)
2. Christina 
3. April 
4. Candace 
5. & 6. Maria + guest  
7. Larry
8. Clinton

      Bianca - per the email I sent yesterday, I extended the registration deadline for you. However, you did not register within the window of time that I was able to extend it for. I'm sorry you won't be able to join us.

    Have the details been sent out? Just want to make sure I didn't miss them, as I haven't received any info yet. Thanks!

    • Leora

      Hi Maria - thanks for checking about this. The details have not yet been sent out. You will receive an email before this afternoon with all of the information

    Will we get to pick out our board at a surf shop ourselves? Just confused on the "soft" board comment - would rather use a composite or shaped board than a foamy.

    • Leora

      Hi Jeff - unfortunately all of the participants must use a soft, foam board for safety reasons. If you have your own board you are welcome to bring it with you and use it after the private lesson.

      I did this last year. The boards are very cushy. I had a blast with my lesson though. I might go just to watch.

      Hi Grey - The event's surf lessons are private and we will have 2:1 student to instructor ratio. For this reason, all participants must register in advance (specifically by Aug. 13) so we have the correct number of instructors.

    It's a shame but that date isn't working for me. Any way to do it August 16th?

    July 29, 2014

    • Eva

      I was actually thinking about doing it on my own. Thanks so much for responding, Leora. I hope you'll have a great time!

      Thanks Eva

    I'd like rsvp +1 and I don't see it as an option.

    July 29, 2014

    • Leora

      Hi Candace - RSVP'ing on the Meetup site does not secure your spot or actually register you for the event. You must do so on the TerraMar website, which I see you've already done for yourself. You should be able to register a second person on the website too. Let me know if you run in to any issues.
