SPI Sessions has a unique approach to our staff. We call ourselves ‘beach life Instructors’ because we believe we share more with the student than just a surfing lesson. We are well-rounded individuals with love for all things friendly to our beach and lifestyle. We maintain a rotating staff of 4-5 Beach life Instructors and 3-5 Science Specific Trainers. In a lesson setting we maintain a 4:1 ratio of surfer to instructor staff to maintain the attention necessary for adequate surf technique and stoke. We are very proud to have a strong staff of vetted individuals eager to share the stoke of surfing and eco-awareness.
