After a quick introduction to your instructor(s) and other surfers (meet people from all over the world!) we'll jump right into a safety & surfing overview and practice your pop-ups with feedback on your stance and speed. We will go over positioning, how to turn, reading waves, and surf etiquette. **If this is not your first time surfing, things go much more quickly ;) Next, you'll spend a few minutes before entering the water stretching and warming up. Once we get into the water, you'll be guided step by step & receive personalized advice and recommendations for improvement. After about an hour, we'll take a quick break for water, additional instruction and feedback, and then hit the waves again for more practice.
Welcome! My name is Cali. I've been surfing since I was 7 and love to watch people catch that first wave and enjoy all of the healthy benefits the ocean has to offer- whether it's through Surfing, SUP, Kayak, Snorkeling -- you name it! I have a lot of experience with children ages 5+ and ensure that regardless of your background, age, or swim abilities, you'll have a safe and fantastic time. I have taught many non-swimmers to surf in the shallow parts of the beach. A very safe experience. Anyone can surf! I'm here to provide you with instruction, support, and lots of fun & smiles. Watching people learn is fun and rewarding :) My Qualifications: - Certified in CPR - Certified Surf Instructor (ISA) - 20+ years teaching experience - Former life guard
Surf board appropriate for your weight & experience level, Rashguard
The main surf base, outdoor showers, bar & restaurant are all on the beach in front of South Beach Hotel- and like the name indicates, on the southern end of Playa Jacó. We enter the water there and hunt waves appropriate for you. The water is very warm & clear, with a sandy bottom and NO riptides. It is very safe for surf or swim. Wave height fluctuates depending on the season, if the tide is High or Low, and how close you are to the break.
最多可有10位年满5周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 **This activity involves some inherent risk & physical exertion, so you must be in good physical condition without any recent surgery, heart condition, pregnancy, disability or injury.**
Swimsuit / Boardshorts (good fit w/ coverage- waves can remove suit if not secure)
We surf around high tide which is different every day. You can look up “Playa Jaco tide forecast” to see the hours best for surfing. Beginners to advanced are welcome- the instruction will meet your experience level. Perfect for families & groups, and for any non-surfers who tag along for swimming!
