Teaching surfing experience is the key in learning how to surf correctly the first time out in the water. It is critical that you deal with someone who has ocean experience and that would mean at least 10 years but better if 20 years surfing+ experience. I would say it took me at least that long to figure it all out.

PS. If your surf instructor
does not consider the tides for that day you are getting ripped off.
Ask your instructor how the tide is? This not only determines your ride length but your safety as well.
We always go for the best tide for safety and ride length. It would be like taking a snow board or ski lesson when there is no snow. I want to make sure you get the longest rides possible.
If everything is good, you will achieve wave rides for 20 to 30 seconds.
This is better than most surfers get in their first year of surfing. That is what gets me stoked!
This is only sport I know of that I can do 25 years in a row and not get bored.
When I first started surfing
25 years ago, I spent the first six months trying to catch a wave on my
6'4 Plastic Fantastic. I was totally frozen in my spring suit but I was
still stoked on surfing.
Finally, I caught my first real wave and the stoked continues decades later.
Surfing is a very tricky deal and surf lessons can help eliminate some of the pains and sufferings a beginner can have. The location for learning should be a surf spot noted for an easy entry into the wave. A nice mellow slow roller is perfect. Thanks again, Matt
Basic SURF TIPS, Surfing
gear, Surfing Rules.
Surfboards. The long and short of it.
The surfboard size is probably the most critical gear choice. When in doubt get the bigger one.
It will make it easier to start learning. Start with a used board or soft board is a good idea.
If you have questions on what size board is right for you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your height and weight and I will get right back with some suggestions.
Leash and wet suit. A leash is a must and should be the same length or longer than the surfboard in most cases. Wet suits are not optional in most areas of Southern California. A full suit is the usual in the Fall, Winter and Spring. Make sure you get one that fits snug but not restricting.
Surf Wax. You use this for grip.
Where to surf is a biggie. There are some spots that are better for beginning and more friendly than others. It is best to email if you are not sure. California Surf Surfing Guide Book
The paddle out.
Make sure you study the waves if they have any size before you paddle out.
You are looking for the best spot to paddle out with the least amount of white water resistance. Watch others who paddle out and see where it is easiest. Then walk out until you get about waist deep( most areas )and get your stroke going and paddle as hard as you can. Keep your chest up when you paddle for more power.
Picking your wave. Timing takes time. Just like a baseball batter waiting for the pitch, the surfer is waiting for the wave, sets and then paddles to catch it. The timing required usually comes with surfing experience or jump started with a professional surf lesson. Try to start with the small waves first. Start in the white water if you are having trouble getting out. Watch others who are successfully catching waves. Pay attention to when and where they start paddle from when they catch a wave. That is close to what will work for that day. Paddle until you feel the momentum of the wave under your board and then goto stand up.
The Pop Up. Practice this at home if you want. You want to be able to pop up to stand in one motion. Bringing your feet underneath your body without using your knees. It can take a little practice. Note: There are some pros who don't pop up like this but it is really rare.
Now you are surfing. To go faster lean or move forward on the board. . To slow down lean or move back on the board.
Important Surf Rules.
Generally, speaking the person closest to the curl or the white water is the owner of that wave.
If you take a wave in front or behind that person already surfing you would be penalized if it was a surfing contest. It is a good idea to surf by this rule.... contest or not.
Daniella here ( English girl
