Learn How to Surf Pacifica (1 day)
Surf Pacifica on the beautiful California Coast. This is our popular surf clinic that lasts three hours. So what will you be learning? This clinic was designed with the beginner in mind – we welcome complete newbies as well as people who have tried surfing on there own for a while and still need help. We will walk you through all the basics to get you started and catching waves! Participants will learn about ocean awareness, wave breaks, ocean conditions, safety in and out of the water, wave etiquette, paddling, push up and pop up techniques, as well as riding waves and balancing. All students will start out in shallow areas riding the whitewater until they are comfortable with venturing further out. The instructors are all CPR/First-Aid and lifeguard certified, and ready to teach you the basics of surfing. We provide a safe and non-threatening environment for the beginning surfer – no angry localism here! Come have fun learning how to surf and explore the wonders of the ocean with our experienced guides. If you have ever thought about surfing and thought “no way,” think again! Lets catch some waves! PLEASE NOTE: All your gear is included – complementary surfboard & wetsuit (be sure to specify your sizes during registration). If you have your own surfboard or wetsuit, you are welcome to bring them, we recommend all wetsuits are at least 4/3mm. We provide all the equipment for your surfing adventure! Just bring regular beach items: swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, snack & water. Clinics are held at Linda Mar Beach in Pacifica (just 15 minutes from San Francisco). CANCELATION POLICY: This experience's cancelation policy is different from Verlocal's default policy due to me having to acquire a permit from the park in advance. As such, guests must cancel 7 days prior to the date of the experience, whether to cancel attendance completely or to move dates. By purchasing, you will be agreeing to this policy. Thank you!
