Then, you are ready to get into the start surfing. The instructors provide gentle, expert instruction to beginners of any age privately, couples, semi-private, or group configurations.

With the right coach, you'll be amazed how quickly you can pick up the basics. Most of the students stand up in their first session. The Hermosa Riders way is to customize the sessions to meet your needs as an individual and make the learning fun and inspirational. That way you'll learn quickly, have an amazing time, and progress at a lightning pace.

For beginners, in your first session, you will learn the basic techniques of surfing such as safety tips, paddling techniques, standing on the board, and riding waves. For someone that already can surf, you will learn on how to read the wave, sit in the right spot, and then get you to commit to paddling into the wave.

Surfing out the back is the ultimate experience and its where the obsession begins. Once you've cracked this stage, you're ready for the advance surf lessons coached by Ariel Gutierrez, a national level coach.
