Our school caters to all levels (and ages) of surfers. Before you even enter the water for the first time, you will be taught how to be safe in the water. Not only do you have to contend with handling your own board in the waves, but you need to be courteous to other surfers.
You will also learn the basics of how to paddle and then 'pop-up' (stand up on the board). Then once you are on your board, how to stay on your board and ride the whole wave!
Once your teacher feels you know how to manage the basics you will enter into the water to catch your first wave!
