All classes begin with stretching and warm up, so students quickly gain an awareness of the importance to stretch prior to hitting the surf.
Following the warm up a deeply explained land lesson begins so students have a chance to focus entirely on the instructors explanation on technique and observe the demonstrations on land prior to getting in the water.
All movements and techniques demonstrated by the instructor are repeated by the students so they can fully understand how the positions and movements should feel. This simulation prepares the students for getting in the water and controlling the board in the waves, paddling out, getting through the surf and standing up.
Before entering the water the instructor will describe the wave conditions for that day and point out rip currents and sand bars, this ensures students become familiar with what is happening in the water at the location they will be completing the lesson.
Our Surf Lessons include everything you need. We provide surfboards, wet suits and certified Surf Instructors with years of experience.
A lesson focused solely on you with close instructor attention and consistent communication will help you to build understanding of the techniques and progress at the fastest rate.
Students who are seeking intermediate level 2 teaching with our SNZ level 2 coach will benefit greatly from this option, particularly when combined with video analysis, as a private coaching session enables you to surf out the back and train in wave selection, duck diving, speed and turning techniques.
We also recommend a private class for children surfing for the first time, those under 5 years, or others feeling less confident in the water. We have special techniques to ensure a positive start, including body dragging together with the instructor on the wave. We aim to build confidence whilst teaching in a safe manner.
