Surf Development Clinics

SPI Sessions- Private Surf Development Clinics

Advanced surfing knowledge begins with mastering a set of skills that will help with overall performance. In each of our summer surf development clinics, surfers will learn by watching surfing techniques performed in slow motion, use balance boards and various balance equipment, use surf-skate boards for maneuverability and technique, and even master a duck dive in a pool. Competitive Surf training will increase surfers awareness of the sport of surfing, culture, and competition criteria.

Our 2-day Summer Surf Development Clinics are offered on Thursdays and Fridays of our Summer Camp Hours (10am-1pm) at our location, 2000 Gulf Blvd. 1-Day “Drop-In” Sessions are also available for those who are unavailable for both clinic days. Classes are limited to 15 students. Skill level assessments will be given at the beginning of each session to properly pair students with instructors and skill levels.

F.A.Q.'S

We are local surf instructors that are available for surfing lessons at your convenience. We don't ask you to pay $10 to surf the jetty, we have the whole island! Let us know where you are staying and we will come to you or pick our favorite surf spots for you!
We are confident that you will see surfing the way we do. It has the capacity to change your life and become one of the most special things you do. Check out what we do to get you started: • The Basics of Surfing • Paddling the Board • Catching Waves • Standing Up on the Board • Wave Selection • Turning Techniques • Surf Etiquette • Ocean Awareness and Safety Advanced surfing knowledge begins with mastering a set of skills that will help with overall performance. In each of our summer surf development clinics, surfers will learn by watching surfing techniques performed in slow motion, use balance boards and various balance equipment, use surf-skate boards for maneuverability and technique, and even master a duck dive in a pool. Competitive Surf training will increase surfers awareness of the sport of surfing, culture, and competition criteria.
Our private surfing lessons include all the necessary equipment you will need to get started. We provide you with a surfing shirt for sun and board rash protection, wax, a soft top learning board, a safety leash, and professional one-on-one coaching. We also have wetsuits and booties, if weather permits!
We pretty much have you covered on the beach, but there are a few personalized items we suggest you bring to your lesson: a reusable water bottle, ocean-safe sunscreen, towel, and comfortable and proper fitting swim attire.
Our Lessons Center location is straight out from city beach access 4. It is also called "beach circle". The public parking lot has limited free parking, however, there is also parking on the street side, and in front of both the Aquarius Condominiums and the Padre Grand. Lock up and Meet us on the beach!
Surfing is a variable sport, but there are so many skills and fun ways to experience surfing out of the water. We take pride in making sure that our camps are full of fun things-to-do. We have balance boards, lily pad mats (to roll out and play on in the water), snorkels and SUPS to take out on flat ocean water days). We make sure the kids leave camp with a brain full of surfing knowledge
If you absolutely need to cancel your reservation we ask that you will do so 24 hours in advance of your scheduled lesson. Cancellations not made 24 hours in advance will be charged 50% of lesson cost.
Will you have lifeguards or trained First Responder staff? All of our beach life instructors are American Red Cross Certified in CPR and first aid, and open water safety. We also take extra precaution and recruit medical interns to help us keep a watchful eye on the water. We have an impeccable safety record and we are very proud of it!

SPI Sessions- Group Surf Lessons

Group surf lessons are the most fun and affordable way to try surfing with friends and family. With your own group of 4 or more people, we will personalize our instruction and instructor:student ratio to ensure no one is left out. Our sessions are one hour and provide your group with all of the necessary equipment and instruction to begin. Land lessons are essential to safety and understanding technique on your first day, but don’t worry you will have plenty of time in the water. Each person is equipped with their own board and instructors send each student on a wave following the next. Guidance from coaches will help accelerate each new surfer at their own pace and push them into the best experience each person can have.
