VB Surf Sessions' professional, CPR-certified surfing senseis instruct apprentice surfers in the ways of the wave and the mind of the surf while wading in the waters of Croatan's South Beach. All lessons and camps rig each board-shorted pupil with a soft-top surfboard, a leash, and a mind full of fundamentals, from effectively balancing on the board to acquiring a whale posse. The wave bodhisattvas also impart instruction essential for water safety, tips on adhering to surfer etiquette, and terminology to help decipher surfing lingo and the whispered insults of conch shells. By keeping lessons to a one-to-four instructor-student ratio, VB Surf Sessions ensures individual attention that helps eliminate bad habits, such as surfing on the underside of the board, early on. Lessons and camps are held seven days a week, so students need only call in advance to reserve a spot.
Free parking is available before 10 a.m.
VB Surf Sessions
All year long the crashing sounds of waves beckon VB Surf Sessions' staff to the water, where they teach students to paddle and shred across the ocean. The CPR-certified instructors maintain a ratio of one teacher to every four students during their surf lessons, allowing them to steady the wobbly legs of pupils as they conquer Virginia Beach, where kayakers can see dolphins propelling through the ocean water. For less intense excursions, groups dip their paddles into the wave-free waters of nearby inlets and human-sized fishbowls during standup-paddleboard lessons and tours. Kayak lessons are also offered to learn the proper mechanics and techniques for paddling. Or explore Rudee Inlet on a tandem kayak tour.
