Are you interested in learning how to surf or just try it once? This is the place. Best part about my lessons- they are always free!!
I go by the nickname "Batch" and I have been teaching for years. One day I was teaching a guy to surf, who was visiting from Europe. He had a great time, but I felt so guilty for charging him for the experience because surfing is actually very easy to learn. That day, I thought that if I could afford it one day, I would give lessons for free. Well, now I am fortunate to have a great job, and I can afford to give the lessons for free. All you would need to do is rent a longboard and a wetsuit at a local shop. The best board to rent is a 10 foot longboard. Foam is better than a fiberglass board at first becasue they don't get scratched up.
Why else am I doing this? I have to admit, it has been a lot of fun to meet people from all over the world and help them learn how to be safe in the water and learn about a great sport.
What do I think about people charging money for lessons? Go for it!!!! I just prefer to do it for free. Don't hate me surf Instructors/Surf Shops- when people want Coaching tips and equipment, I will send them your way.
I am really interested in working with Hospitals and various groups that feel that surfing may be beneficial to patients, clients, and members. I would like to work with Addiction recovery groups, Youth Service organizations, and foundations for persons with emotional, spiritual, mental and physical difficulties. People may think that it might not be possible to get somebody in the water with various handicaps but you would be surprised. -
My lessons will happen once or twice a month at various beaches in Orange County and every Saturday in San Diego. See you soon!
