    Product description


    This clinic was designed with the beginner in mind – we welcome complete newbies as well as people who have tried surfing on their own for a while and still need help. We will walk you through all the basics to get you started and catching waves! Participants will begin with a land-lesson to learn about ocean awareness, wave breaks, ocean conditions, safety in and out of the water, wave etiquette, paddling, push up and pop up techniques, as well as riding waves and balancing. Then, students will move in to the water and start out in shallow areas riding the whitewater until they are comfortable with venturing further out. Our instructors are all CPR/First-Aid and lifeguard certified, and ready to teach you the basics of surfing. Participants can expect approximately 1:30-2 hours of water time in a 2.5 hour lesson – the start of the class does have some “setup” time built-in to get people suited up and down on to the beach, and the land lesson can take about 30 minutes. We provide a safe and non-threatening environment for the beginning surfer! Come have fun learning how to surf and explore the wonders of the ocean with our experienced guides!

    Soren and Chase were great teachers and made my first surf experience killer . They didn’t overwhelm me with too many details and stayed close by the whole time . Anyone on the fence should definitely go for it !

    I had the best time learning how to surf in Santa Cruz with Enzo, Chase, and most of all the amazing Nina. Everyone was so patient, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and empowering! I was catching my own waves by the second day. Couldn’t have asked for a better time to spend the weekend. Thank you! Adventure Out with their amazing team and zero emission sustainability goals makes them the standouts! Don’t hesitate to book your next adventure out with ADVENTURE OUT!

    Really chill experience. Good communication prior to the surf lessons, and my questions were answered. On the day of, felt a little apprehensive on what to expect, but everyone was easy going, understanding, and very positive. It was a good group and good day to surf - had a bunch of fun and a great weekend memory.
