Should I take group classes or private lessons?
We recommend all students take at least one group class first then look at taking a one on one private lesson. To learn the basics most students find the group classes to be just as effective as a private sessions and at half the cost. When you take a group lesson you will still get some one on one time in the water with the instructor and it will also be a lot more fun in a group learning environment. Private lessons work well for students wanting to fast track their surfing to ride unbroken waves at more of an intermediate – advance level.
