Surf navigation skills, strategy & safety.

  • 20 US dollars

Service Description

Fall is here, winter is on the way and surfing is a fun and healthy activity to do year-round! Join me for part 2 of a special 2-part ocean-going workshop. We will cover both theoretical and practical (see: practice!) surf skills as we transition into that gnarlier time of year. Come to one or both workshops, though I highly recommend attending a skills practice before an ocean navigation session. More sessions will be added soon so check back and subscribe for updates! PART 2 - OCEAN NAVIGATION MOONSTONE BEACH Oct. 9, Saturday, 9-11 am Oct. 10, Sunday, 9-11 am This workshop aims to cultivate our skills at reading and navigating the ocean so that we can have more fun surfing, safely. An on-sand discussion and skills workshop will be put into practice when we paddle out, all the way to the outside, and then catch a wave all the way in. If you go surfing at least occasionally, but struggle getting out through the whitewater, have fears of being on the outside or are freaked out by big waves, this workshop is for you to build technical, physical and mental confidence! *Again, if you want to hone in on your duck diving and turtling, please try and attend a skills practice (Part 1) first. 9am: Reading the water & navigation strategies (on sand) - surf forecasts, buoys - thorough surf checks - identifying currents - paddling out, making it through the whitewater, duck diving, turtling - positioning to catch waves you want and avoiding those you don't want to catch you - staying calm in wipeouts and cleanup sets - planning multiple strategies for returning to shore 10am: Paddle out and surf session We are going to paddle ALL THE WAY outside. On the way out we will practice all the skills we talked about beforehand, and then regroup beyond the breakers to congratulate each other, catch our breath and debrief. Then, we will find our way back to shore, surfing along the way. * Because of the in-ocean nature of this workshop, space is limited to just 6 people, but more sessions will be added as smaller days appear on the forecast.
