Surf Lessons in Detail

Firstly, the take-off and analysis of conditions before the surf lessons.

Secondly, paddling out through the surf and positioning in the lineup.

Catching waves, as well as riding straight or, if your level is advanced, performing maneuvers.

That’s the program for individual surf lessons at my surf school.

The take off

Next, a very important step in surf lessons, the take-off, which is the moment when you stand up on the surfboard.

Indeed, whether on a small or large board, it’s a crucial step that deserves a lot of attention. The movement is so quick that it becomes automatic.

That’s why it’s important to avoid mistakes in learning during surf lessons.

Pass the braking waves

One of the challenges in learning to surf is getting past the breaking waves.

To catch waves before they break, you need to paddle out beyond the breaking zone.

There are techniques like duck diving or turtle rolling to get under the waves.

It’s necessary to take several surf lessons to master these different techniques.

The offshore positioning

Firstly, knowing how to position yourself out in the lineup and wait for waves in the right spot.

Surfers call this « reading the lineup. » Analyzing the waves and the spot before each surf lesson is essential for proper positioning.

Take on the waves

Ultimately, one of the main goals for students during surf lessons is to be able to catch waves independently.

Learning to analyze, paddle, adjust positioning, and ultimately achieve the best placement to catch waves.

Entering the wave is one of the most crucial steps during surf lessons.

It conditions your ability to surf the wave effectively from the outset. « RIGHT TIME RIGHT PLACE »

Take a path

During surf lessons, I often compare surfing to a combat sport.

You must constantly adapt to the behavior of the wave and its breaking.

From this perspective, it’s important, even essential, to know what to do and when on the wave.


For more experienced surfers during surf lessons, it’s also possible to begin learning maneuvers.

The bottom-turn, the roller, the snap, the cutback, the floater, the turn, the tube—these are all essential for any good surfer.

Indeed, all these maneuvers are important in surf improvement, as they are functional.

They allow you to maximize the potential of the wave and cover more distance using vertical trajectories.
