Beginner/Novice* – ability to paddle to the outside of the break and stand/pop up on waves is required. The member must have their own board. This session is for the novice surfer who catches less than 50% of her own waves and needs assistance with timing, assessing and catching waves, turning, turtle and duck diving, etc.
*this is not a session for members brand new to surfing. With 10 members in the water concurrently, there isn’t the ability for the coach to give the individual attention needed for a new surfer. The participant should have the basic paddling skills, ability to get to the outside and pop up on waves. Safety and fun are the foremost goals for these sessions.
Dan Mori of Fulcrum Surf will answer questions on the beach and be in the water to assist and offer advice to improve your technique, so please be ready and suited up at 8:00 am. Look for the SDSL sign.
Each Sport session is $10 per member. $35 for non members.The sessions are limited to 10 participants.
All fees are non refundable. If a member cancels and the event coordinator can find a replacement, the member’s $10 fee will be applied as a credit to another session within the same calendar year. If not, the fee will not be credited.
If a member cancels within 48 hours of the session, the fee will not be credited. If the event coordinator and coach cancel the session due to high pollution and/or inclement weather, all fees will be credited towards a future session. Those members will have first right of refusal for the make up session. If they can’t make the make up, their credit will be applied to a future session within the same calendar year. If a member cancels due to conditions, the same cancellation rules apply as above.
Members should contact the event coordinator through a private Facebook message or email if they need to cancel. Session fees are non transferrable to another member and the event coordinator is responsible for finding a replacement. The replacement member is required to pay the $10 session fee. PayPal instructions are available when registering for the event. Members are asked to pay when registering as the event coordinator will not collect fees the day of the event.
Since attendance is limited, please be respectful of other members that want to participate and refrain from signing up for both beginner and intermediate/advanced sessions multiple times in a row. If you need help choosing which session is best for you, contact the coordinator and she'll be able to help you decide or ask the coach to assess your skills.
Thanks and see you in the water!
