Top Surf Lessons related questions

Surfing is not as dangerous as compared to other board sports like snowboarding, wakeboarding, or skateboarding. It’s because in surfing, your speed is relatively low, and the water will absorb most of your crashes. Also, surfing for beginners is probably the safest because chances are you will be at a mellow beach break, and the waves will be small. It’s also recommended for beginners to ride soft top surfboards, which highly increases safety.

It depends on how fast you can absorb the lessons, but generally, it takes at least three surf lessons to learn how to surf and catch a wave by yourself. This is one of the most basic skills, and if you want to progress after this, it will take more lessons for you to master intermediate and advanced surfing skills. 

It depends on several factors such as your age, fitness level, your familiarity with the ocean, your board sports experience, and the type of beaches you have access to. You can teach yourself the basic concepts, but for you to develop your surfing skills further, you would need a surf instructor to guide you. Plus, it’s much safer if you have an expert by your side. 

You can teach surfing to kids as young as seven or eight, while seniors aged 60 and above can still learn how to surf as well. As long as you are a persistent person, have decent arm and leg strength, adequate balance skills, and are willing to learn proper surfing etiquette, you can learn to surf no matter what your age is. 

You may want to use your own wetsuit, rashguard, board shorts, and surf earplugs. Your Tasker can provide other surfing equipment such as a surfboard, fins, leash, and surf wax. If you’re serious about pursuing surfing as a sport or hobby, you may want to purchase your own surf gear. Your Tasker can provide recommendations on where to buy the best surfing equipment.

For cashless transactions, you can use the Airtasker Pay system available on our platform. You can also pay via cash if you prefer. Discuss this detail with your Tasker before starting your first surf lesson. You can also discuss with them the frequency of payment, whether you want to pay them every after session, every week, or every month.

What do surf lessons include?

Surf lessons involve teaching you the fundamentals, from basic concepts to advanced techniques. This is perfect whether you’re looking to upgrade your fitness regimen or find adventurous recreational activities. Since surfing is a water sport, you can also enhance your swimming skills by hiring a swimming instructor to help you gain more confidence in the water. When you’re ready, feel free to use Airtasker to find surf lessons near you! Here are a few things you can expect when booking a surf instructor:

Surf lessons for kids

If your child seems interested in surfing, enrol them in surf lessons! It can give your child the confidence not only to stand on a surfboard but to handle themselves more confidently while riding the waves. Your instructor can teach your child safety rules, surf etiquette, and other techniques such as entering the water correctly, paddling and positioning on top of the surfboard, and getting through a wave. You can skip worrying as instructors can adapt the lessons to your child’s age and skill level.

Surf lessons for beginners

If you’re an adult who wants to learn how to surf, you can book beginner surf lessons near you! Your instructor can teach you how to face your first wave, get off your board safely, and paddle correctly. Other topics can include safety precautions, from properly dismounting your board to going over and under the waves.

If you’re taking up surfing because you want to stay active and improve your physique, you can take your fitness journey to the next level by hiring a personal trainer on Airtasker!

Intermediate surf lessons

If you’ve already mastered the basics of surfing and want to take your skills up a notch, you can book intermediate surf lessons to polish the fundamentals you’ve learned. As an intermediate surfer, your instructor can teach you to surf on the main surf break further out to sea. You can also learn how to walk up and down the board while you’re surfing, do bottom turns and other crucial manoeuvres, maximise paddle efficiency, make sections, and build up speed.

Advanced surf lessons

Advanced surf lessons can help push your surfing skills further! Your instructor can help you gain the confidence to ride bigger waves. You may also learn advanced foot placement to do tricks and develop your own surfing style. If you’re aiming to surf competitively, you can also get a private coach to teach you specific riding strategies and techniques.
