About This Experience

General Information hide

Head out to Bodega Bay and learn to surf during this Introductory Surfing Lesson! Whether you’ve tried it on your own without success or have been up on a board before, this two and a half hour beginner surf lesson will take you to the next level.

The adventure begins at the Surf Shack when you meet your certified Instructor who will get you set up with all of the gear you’ll need. Once you have your wetsuit on, it’s time to grab your board and head to the beach. Here you and the rest of the class will learn proper surfing techniques and etiquette along the shoreline. When you’ve mastered the pop-up on dry land, it’s time to head in to the waters of the shallow surf to try it for real. As you become more comfortable on the board, you will progress into deeper waters and learn to catch waves!

Sun, sand and the waves of the Northern California beaches make this Bodega Bay Surf Lesson the perfect experience gift for anyone who has ever dreamed of being a surfer.
