Please make sure you read the WHOLE page and follow directions. Coaching takes place anywhere in between La Jolla Shores and Ocean Beach. A message with the location will be sent the day before the lesson to the people who have secured their spot Check out more on the background of your Water Safety, Lifeguard Rescue, CPR and First Aid certified coach background at: https://www.surfabsorbed.com/ What you will learn: -Ocean awareness -Board handling and positioning -Pop Up techniques -Wave reading -Paddling techniques and ploughing through waves -Surfing etiquette, and of course RIDING WAVES!!!!!! If you need gear, I provide boards/wetsuits at the beach!! Just bring your enthusiasm and a go-for-it attitude. You will get to use the gear PLUS a one-hour surf lesson with a world class water athlete who is water safety, CPR and first aid certified with 30 plus years experience in surfing, longboarding, skimboarding and bodyboarding. No gear no worries!! Just show up to the lesson and have fun!!! During summer I will provide tops only!! Neoprene vests and rashguards. **If you have gear--- $40 **If you have no gear (or if you just need a board) --- $45 https://www.paypal.me/LearnHowtoSurf Upon payment, lesson will be held even if only one person signed up. One hour and a half private and semi-private coaching available with 48 hours advance booking. Check the rates at: https://www.surfabsorbed.com/shop/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- !!!!!!!!!!!!! RSVP Rules !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rule #1 - Only RSVP at the same time you message me your size info AND send your payment to paypal.me/learnhowtosurf Rule #2 - If you do not follow Rule #1 you might be edited out the RSVP list causing you to miss your spot in the lesson Thanks for your understanding! Right after RSVPing if you need gear, message me -your clothing size, height and weight (to ensure I have the right size gear for you on the day of your lesson) No refunds for no shows ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- One Hour Surf Lesson ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please allow at least 20 minutes to find parking, finiding us, socializing with your new friends and suiting up (a.k.a puting on your wetsuit ---yes it can take quite some time for that as it feels like a task lol) 1. Lessons start on the dot: I can't emphasize enough that the one-hour lessons start on the dot. Reason being, if you do not get to the beach on time you will be missing the most important part of the lesson which is on the sand: learning how to pop up and position your feet and body on the board as well as safety ocean tips for the conditions we will be facing. Once I start the lesson I can not go over what you missed and if I am in the water with the riders that got there on time, I will not get out of the water. 2. Groups of 4 or more people that need gear: Please note each class is a maximum of 4 people. Reason being is because it takes a lot of one-on-one attention to get you to learn how to stand up. A group of more than 4 people will not allow enough time to pay enough one-on-one attention to some students which will end up being neglected and therefore will not learn how to standup without the proper guidance. If you have a big group (3 people or more) I suggest you plan to have separate one-hour lessons. I also have limited access to gear. So, in order to allow everyone in your group to have the right size wetsuit and board I need a couple days notice to get it all together for the lesson. For groups of 4 or more people please follow these 3 steps: 1. RSVP all in your group at the same time 2. Have everyone's fees paid two days in advance 3. Message me everyone's weight/height and clothing size at the same time Cancelations for a full refund will be accepted with a 48 hour notice only. No shows/Last minute cancelations. No refunds Thanks everybody and I am looking forward to get everyone smiling :)
