What you'll do

We will meet on a specific beach based on the conditions of the day. I call this aspect of the experience "Ground School."

There I will teach you the basics of how to hold, carry, and manage a surfboard. I'll teach you about ocean safety including rip currents, waves, and marine life. I will teach the proper way to paddle, and stand up on a surf board before we go into the water.

Then together we will go into the water. There you will practice lying on and sitting on the board. We will work on your body position and paddling technique. We will then practice catching and riding waves.

My teaching style includes verbal and visual cues. We work at your pace and make sure you are having a fun relaxing experience.

Where you'll be

The Outer Banks of North Carolina offer beautiful open beaches and large undeveloped stretches of shoreline. It's a wonderful place to experience the ocean. We will meet in Buxton or Frisco, NC for the experience based on where the waves are best for the day. These two locations are about 15 minutes apart. We'll decide the day before. Surfing is always weather and wave dependent. If conditions are too rough, we will not be able to enter the water
