Our Private Surf Lessons in Puerto Rico are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. Catered to all our first-time students, our instructors will begin by going through safety regulations, ocean awareness (currents/ waves descriptions), and the specific parts of the surfboard. Once you have mastered these skills under your belt it is time for some hands on experience! The instructor will stay with each student as they go into a deep water start or alternatively teach them how to get up while laying down on their stomach before paddling out from shoreline – depending where we currently stand at that point in time.
At this stage there’ll be plenty more lessons awaiting us such as: maneuvers when caught inside an incoming wave; finning techniques & hand positioning.
One On One Surfing Lessons
We begin the lesson with several one on one exercises specializing on balance and form to get your body and mind ready to enjoy your surfing experience. Then, you will be ready to hit the water and enjoy the beauty of surfing. This is a great option for kids and adults who are looking for a more personalized experience as they begin to learn about the sport.
Frequently Asked Questions About Our Private Surf Lessons in Puerto Rico
What is the easiest way to learn to surf?
Get a really stable board. A longboard with a soft deck will enable you to paddle easily into waves while minimizing injury. The easiest way to learn is to catch a lot of waves. If you paddle out on a shortboard (presuming you’re an adult) then you’ll struggle to:
catch waves (you won’t have enough buoyancy or shoulder strength to build up adequate momentum through paddling)
stand up (you will be wobbly and the wobbliest position is somewhere between lying on your belly and standing up)
I am not a very good swimmer, can I still take private surf lessons?
If you can’t swim, you can’t paddle. And surfing involves a lot of paddling. … So, the answer to the question “I am not a very good swimmer, can I still take private surf lessons?” is yes, you need to learn to swim beforehand. Even if, technically, you can do it in a controlled, shallow water environment.
What is the hardest part of surfing?
The hardest part is paddling. Shoulder endurance is critical. The entire process of getting from the sandy beach out into deep water where there are rideable waves relies entirely on the bands of muscle that criss-cross your neck and upper arms.
Can you surf if there is bad weather?
Yes, you can, as long as you don’t spot a storm on the horizon or high chances of lightning. Although acid rain is a reality, the primary complication comes from terra firma. According to health specialists, surfers and beachgoers should never get in the ocean after it rains.
I have never surfed before. Can I still take lessons?
Even if you just take a few lessons, you’ll be much better equipped to surf. The first 10 minutes of your lesson will focus on safety and how to “pop up” on your board. After that, you’ll catch a bunch of waves and get used to surfing.
