Hello new surfers!
I'm excited to have you join us and to help instruct you in the great sport of surfing. Please make sure to read this entire post as it will detail what you should expect and what will be required of you to make this year's first beginner day run nice and smooth.
First and most important you should expect to have fun!
You should plan to get to Porto a bit early so you can find parking and be on the beach by 9am. Make sure you have at least $6 in quarters. Parking is 10min per $.25.
Come on down to the beach and introduce yourself. We will split everyone up into groups based on your ability level and pair up students and instructors.
For first-time surfers and those that would like a refresher course, we will do a beach instruction on pop ups then your instructor will take you into the water.
Please feel free to ask questions.
The lessons will last around 2 hours but some of the instructors will be available to stay with you if you want to stay in the water and continue practicing.
Around 1pm we will pack up and head up to Fish Bar for lunch.
