During lessons, safety-minded instructors teach groups of three to five students how to properly mount, stand upon, dismount, and remount their boards, as well as how to stroke as efficiently as possible. The goal is to get students confidently standing on flat water. Once they’ve found their sea legs, pupils are then free to explore the area with provided standup paddleboards, leashes, and wetsuits.

Surfari Surf

Amateur surfers are a lot like newborn fawns: they’re wide-eyed, full of life, and not so great at standing. That’s why head instructor and founder of Surfari Surf, Rick Gehris—along with his team of seasoned instructors—begins every first-time lesson by introducing a simple, achievable goal: stand. To increase the chances of success, Gehris and his instructors—well versed in Hawaiian, Californian, and Floridian surfing methods—hop right into the water to assist students as they cut into the waves. The instructors hang off the tails of their surfboards, stabilizing each board and repositioning students until they’re ready to take to the open water and try out their pickup lines on the nearest, cute-enough dolphin.

In addition to surf lessons and camps, instructors also show off their athletic prowess during standup-paddleboard lessons, which often are supplemented by independent board rentals.
