Pupils learn to master the tides from surfing instructor and Jetty Betty owner Vanessa Floyd and her staff. Jetty Betty Surf School provides a rental surfboard and a wetsuit for sessions, which begin with a brief land lesson, during which pupils learn the basic pop-up method of standing upright on the board before testing their mettle in the waves. Jetty Betty Surf School operates close to the famous Mavericks big-wave spot, where an underwater rock creates massive swells that attract the world’s best big-wave surfers and surfing competitions. Vanessa and her staff lead guests on short hikes to a cliff that overlooks the Mavericks, where they can watch the crashing waves from a safe distance, learn about the history of the spot, and give pet names to all of the surrounding rocks.<p>
Jetty Betty Surf School
Jetty Betty Surf School owner Vanessa Floyd shepherds clients out into the churning waters of Half Moon Bay, where she teaches surfers of all abilities to master the tides. A surf instructor for close to 10 years, Vanessa has come to view fearlessness and positive thinking as the keys to anyone's success atop the waves, and she fosters client confidence with constructive advice, a sunny attitude, and having them visualize octopi in their underwear. In addition to her hang-ten experience, Vanessa draws from her knowledge as a certified personal trainer, a sports nutritionist, and a yoga enthusiast to help people get the most out of their surfing ventures from a physical and spiritual standpoint. When not surfing in California, Vanessa cruises the surf in Oahu, where she also leads relaxing surfing retreats.
