More Surf Lesson Info

Surf NSB

The use of a board and wetsuit (if needed) is included in the cost of the lesson. If you have your own board, bring it and we can help you get the most out of it.

Classes are limited to no more than 4 people per instructor. This makes it a more focused learning experience for everybody. We’ve found that confusion and chaos tends to erupt when there is more than four in a class. Group classes are available with reservations and we provide additional instructors if necessary.

Contact us for reservations and availability at (386) 690-8420
(min. 24 hr. notice and subject to instructor availability).

To get the most out of your surfing experience, we suggest booking your surf class at the beginning of your vacation so that you can enjoy surfing throughout your stay.

The surf lesson lasts 2 hours. The cost is $109.00

Prices are subject to change. All students under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian sign the legal waiver required for all students.
