Once on the beach we will talk about the characteristics of the waves and a description of the beach. Then we will do a surfing theory class in a green area or in the sand for 20 minutes to learn the safety recommendations, surfboard manipulation, correct positioning for paddling, correct positioning of the body on the board, how to get up, balance and posture, recognition of when to grab the wave, and how to enjoy it to the fullest. Then we will practice surfing in the sea for at least 90 minutes. We will use one instructor for every two students to ensure good service and safety. The class can be in shallow water for those who are not used to the ocean. If yo dont know how to swim, it will be not a problem. We can do the practice where you can stand on your feet. For the intermediums or more advanced we can go out to the line up. It will always depend on swell conditions too.

Surfboard and T-shirt I will provide sunscreen and the right surfboard for your size, weight, and experience.
We will be at Jaco Beach, usually at the very south end of the beach where the waves are the best to learn and feel confident, in front of the Club del Mar Hotel. If participants are advanced, we can explore other places.
