- For $110, you get two private surfing lessons for two people (a $300 value).
Costa Azul owner Rod Greenup, equipped with 27 years of surfing instruction experience, leads an energetic staff in teaching board beginners the basics of surfing during instructional lessons. During each lesson, students absorb the tutelage of a private guide and glean a deeper understanding of whale-speak while navigating across the pastures of the Pacific Ocean. Most lessons last 1–2 hours, depending on the physical condition of individual students, and the sessions stress ocean safety and awareness. Surfing fundamentals, such as board balance, can provide gliding undergrads with enough knowledge to enable the riding of a wave by the end of the first session. Lessons are subject to weather conditions and include all necessary equipment, including boards, body suits, and boxing gloves to ward off temperamental starfish.
