Our 2-Day Surf Clinic is a great opportunity for all those who want to get hardcore with their surf skills! Students will receive six hours of surf instruction over the course of two days, and in these two sessions we will maintain a 5:1 student to instructor ratio. While this allows for slightly larger groups, the additional hour provided (compared with Bodhi Surf School’s private and group surf lessons), each session permits Bodhi Surf instructors to work with students on a personal level and allows quick learners to have more time in the water to practice catching waves. Both lessons take place at Playa Colonia inside the Marino Ballena National Park.
A Typical Surf Clinic With Bodhi Surf
Like our private and group surf lessons, we teach safety first. This includes general ocean safety, surfboard management, and surfing etiquette which becomes ever more important when surfing in larger groups. You can also expect to learn techniques for paddling, catching waves, and standing up. Our surf clinics are designed to maximize your time in the water so you can expect to get a solid foundation for catching waves on your own, which is a crucial step towards being able to surf independently.
Here’s what you can expect to learn and do during the 2-day surf clinic, depending on your level and the ocean conditions:
- Surfboard anatomy
- Safety tips to keep you unscathed while surfing
- Surfboard management
- Proper positioning and paddling technique on a surfboard
- Proper technique for standing on a surfboard
- Identify the different phases of a wave
- How to sit and turn on your surfboard
- How to position yourself to catch unbroken waves
- How to turn your surfboard once you are up and riding
- How to get through the breakers
- Surfing etiquette
Is A 2-Day Surfing Clinic Right For Me?
The surf clinics are a great value for students staying in or near Bahia Ballena who would like to take multiple surf lessons. The lessons are broken down into two three-hour long sessions, ideal for learning techniques on the beach and having ample time to practice in the water. Surfing clinics are ideal for both beginner and intermediate surfers, and especially those who are stoked to get as much surf time in as possible.
