Surf lessons in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca
Each surf lesson is 2 hours in length. The first lesson always begins with an introduction to the basics of surfing on the beach which includes: surf etiquette, anatomy of your surf board, and ocean safety. This can be conducted in both English and Spanish. From there you will enter the ocean with your instructor by your side. Students can expect to be gently pushed into waves until they can demonstrate the ability to safely paddle for their own waves. We encourage a safe progression towards independently catching waves, maneuvering your board and eventually surfing on your own.
Surf lessons include transportation, surf boards, rash guards and optional board shorts for the ladies (we find shorts help our female surfers to focus on the sport and not worry about losing their bikinis – leading to a better lesson and faster progress). We can also provide a beach umbrella for observers.
Photo sessions are available at an additional cost. This is a great way to share your experience later with friends and family and keep the memory of that first wave forever.
