Michelle offers personal instruction for the beginner surfer. All surf lessons begin on the beach with the basics - safety, paddling techniques, surf etiquette, wave & water knowledge - and then venture out into the water to get comfortable on the board. She supplies a soft-top surfboard for your lesson or you may prefer to use your own. Lessons are only conducted in small surf conditions.
All you need is a comfortable swimsuit, boardshorts and/or rashguard, a towel, plenty of sunscreen and willingness to relax and have fun!
Due to changes in beach & sandbars, locations for the surf lessons & camps will be determined at the beginning of the season. Lessons may be scheduled May thru October, and times will vary depending on tides and schedule.
Surf lessons and camps may be held at Assateague State Park or in Ocean City, Maryland. This depends on sandbars and tides. Currently, I am the only instructor in the area with an agreement that allows me to offer my lessons at Assateague State Park. Assateague offers the best waves in the area for beginners.
Initial lessons are about 90 minutes in length with additional lessons being 1 hour and are dependent on weather and surf conditions. Weekend surf camps are 2 hours in length each day.
Michelle is AED Certified for Adult & CPR Certified for Adults, Children & Infants through the American Red Cross.
