Land Session in Pacifica

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

Part 1: The first 35 minutes 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. 

Part 2: The next 35 minutes will focus on Reading and Riding Waves with an empasis on etiquette in the water. She will review the lifecycle of a wave and how to choose and catch the best wave for you. Next, we'll demonstrate paddle positioning, catching waves, and pop-up stance, and dismounts. This class will involve some movement in place (optional).

There will be time for Q&A!
