Land Session in Pacifica

This 1.5 hour class series is designed to give an overview and introduction to surfing at the beginner level. 

Upcoming Session: 

EQUIPMENT FOR GETTING STARTED

Location: TSC, Pacifica
Date: Saturday 7/20/24
Time: 9am - 10:30am

 

April will share insights on how to prioritize and choose surf gear that will serve you in your surf journey. Picking a surfboard is a top priority and can be confusing. Let us take the mystery out of the selection process, Foam boards, Epoxy and Fiberglass. What's the difference and why might one be a better choice for you?

Once you've chosen your favorite craft, surfboard care comes in equal to board selection. Dive into the products available that can help with equipment longevity, keep you safe, and make you smile!

Past Sessions

(these will repeat throughout the year, so please check back for new dates)

Beginner Basics

Part 1: The first section will be spent discussing Ocean Safety at Linda Mar Beach. This will cover learning how to read weather and ocean conditions, including tides, currents, wind, and potential hazards in the water. April will share some tools to use in predicting the conditions so you can make an educated decision about when to surf. She will discuss the different waves that break at Linda Mar Beach and what makes the break differently. She will also guide attendees on where the best beginner spots are and on how to choose the best beginner conditions. We will also cover Reading and Riding Waves with an emphasis on etiquette in the water. April will review the lifecycle of a wave and how to choose and catch the best wave for you.

Part 2: The next section will focus on paddle positioning, catching waves, and pop-up stance, and dismounts. This section includes demonstrations and practice for those interested in participating

There will be Q& A after each section covered.

    Who this is for:

    • Beginner surfers who are interested in learning the basics of surfing and gaining confidence and tools to help them start and progress in their wave riding ability.
