Surfing is a surface water sports in which the surfer rides on the forward or deep face of a moving wave, which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore. Surfing involves riding ocean waves with a surfboard. To catch a wave, the surfer swims a ways out into the ocean lying on their stomach on the surfboard.
When a wave comes, the surfer aims the board into land and begins to paddle to catch the wave. Once the wave begins to propel the surfer, the surfer pops up from the belly and stands on the surfboard. Now the surfer rides the wave as it speeds into shore. Club del Mar Hotel Resort will introduce you to surfing in a safe, fun and supportive manner with the appropriate equipment.
The class will be usually waist to chest high deep water. Your instructor can walk along with you, helping you to manipulate the board and positioning you for waves on the right timing as you need it. You will learn:
If you feel comfortable with the waves, Club del Mar Hotel Resort will move outside to the lineup and your instructor will be swimming along with you, holding your board if you need it, and helping you position for and catch the waves. You will also learn to duck diving or Eskimo roll, paddling through waves, wave judgement, proper positioning in the lineup, wave catching techniques, turning and maneuvering on the wave.
