Beginner Surfing Classes in Montezuma
From USD 60.00
Overview
Pop up on a surfboard and catch your first waves in Montezuma with a professional surf lesson. Learn the basics of surfing rules and etiquette on the shore, and then jump in the water to try out fundamental moves with the help of your guide. A big sandbar makes Montezuma a great place for beginners to safely and comfortably try a new sport, and all equipment is included so you don’t need to fuss with any rentals.
What to Expect
The schedules of the surf lessons follows the tide changes and surf conditions like winds and swells, so we put the schedules every day or every other day. After meeting in Montezuma, you will start a hike to Playa Grande passing through some of the most beautiful beaches and some little jungle path .
Once there, you will setup camp in a shady spot on the beach were you will get ready and start the theoretical introduction for about fifteen minutes which covers: attitude and behavior in the water, beginners safety rules and basic techniques of surfing. After that you will practice the stand up exercise in the sand to have a better reference to what to do in the water.
You will jump in the water on the safe zone of the white water where you will be in maximum chest high deep water. You will catch the waves after they break and use that soft energy to put in practice all this new knowledge.
