What you'll do

First, we'll meet at a local spot and walk together to the beach, where I will teach you about the beach, safety awareness, surf etiquette, and how to act in the different situations we might find ourselves in while surfing. Then it's time for a light warm-up session. I will teach basic surfing techniques on the sand. Once the group is ready, we'll brave the waves and practice our new skills. You will understand why people love Playa Hermosa.
