Surf Lessons

Surf Lessons are a great and affordable experience for people of all ages.  Summertime conditions in the Bethany Beach area are very favorable for beginning surfers.  Lessons are typically run at the North Side of Indian River inlet or at the State Park in Fenwick Island depending on wave height and wind.  Lessons are offered individually or for groups.  Discounted pricing is available for large groups.  Please contact us at the shop for details.

Pricing and Reservations

For 2012, we’ll be offering surf lessons at the base rate of $45 per person.  Reservations can be made by calling the shop at 302-537-9058 or in person.

Typically, when scheduling reservations we ask for your availability for a number of days.  Our instructors will monitor the conditions and work with you on selecting a time that will be favorable for a lesson.  If you’re coming to town for a week’s vacation there will probably be a few days of good waves
