When talking a surfing lesson many surf students are worried they won’t be able to to stand up. Here at the North Shore Surf Girls Surf School we know that if you can walk to the water you can walk on water so to speak. The secret to being successful is all in your head – which is where we come in. Our surf lessons not only include instructions on how to stand up and control the board but also what to think of while your doing it. First and foremost we want you to focus on feeling and being balanced. It’s not so important how fast you get up on your surfboard, but rather that you do it with balance. Take your time focus your gaze on the shore line ( look up) and you will find your self walking on water or rather surfing a wave in Hawaii for the first time!
How do you prepare for a surfing lesson? Surfing requires a lot of paddling so you should strengthen your arms. Lifting light weights and or doing push ups help the most. Having strong stomach muscles will also help a lot with your surfing. Sit ups and crunches are best. For balance yoga is also one of the best things you can do to prepare for a surfing lesson. Other then working on your fitness and balance you can also watch the video below of a surfing lesson to see how it all gets put together.
