Receive surfing instruction during your private lesson at Pacifica's Linda Mar Beach – the San Francisco area's only beginner surfing beach. Gain the skills needed to begin catching waves at the peak and in the line-up from your expert instructor.
What to Expect
Begin your lesson with a surf spot study, during which you'll examine the location and discuss with your instructors exactly how to move into the line-up with proper etiquette and begin catching set waves. Once in the water, your expert instructors will teach you how to efficiently and effectively paddle out through the breaking waves. Next, they'll help you get in the proper position and then make the key bottom-turn to ride down the face of the wave.
Your course will cover techniques in turning, riding the face of the wave, learning how to read a tide chart, and how the tides affect the waves. In addition, your instructors will go into detail about the various types of surfboards and their uses, as well as how to select a board for your personal skill level and surf location. Yoga stretches for surfers will also be covered.
Your instructors will work with you on answering any questions you may have about your current surfing performance and how to improve. With personal instruction designed to elevate your surfing and meet your specific needs, this clinic is the perfect step in your surfing progression.
