Led by lifelong surfer Rusty Whitlock (RW) and his sons Cory and Ricky, Whitlock Surf Experience draws on generations of wave-riding wisdom to help surf students find their webbed wings, year-round. The shop's CPR-certified instructors emphasize safety and fun as they turn the Pacific Ocean into a practical classroom, keeping the student-to-teacher ratio at a five-to-one maximum to ensure individualized attention and prevent doubling up of Marx Brothers nicknames. Surfing students gain an introduction to all critical skills, from paddling out and standing up to catching waves and evading errant seaweed. Paddleboard aspirants master balance and oaring techniques, skimming atop the water and ferrying shipwrecked children away from their island colonies. Board and wetsuit rentals last the entire day, allowing pupils to test their newfound skills on the frothy edges of incoming waves.

About Whitlock Surf Experience
The patriarch of more than three generations of surfers, Rusty Whitlock began shaping smooth surfboards almost 50 years ago. Accompanied by sons and professional surfers Cory and Ricky, the men of Whitlock oversee a collection of oceanic enterprises that include surf lessons, custom surfboard construction, and custom merchandizing. Whitlock Surf Experience trains budding boardsmen through small classes with a 1:5 instructor-to-student ratio. All teachers boast at least 10 years of experience and are CPR certified to save any waterlogged sand crabs. RW Surfboards fashions wave-riders of all sizes, from 6'5'' tubers to 11-foot longboards, as well as individual rentals for soft surfboards, bodyboards, wetsuits, and bikes.
