What surfing gear do I need to bring if I'm a beginner?

Hi there - heading to Santa Teresa in a couple of weeks. Probably want to try a beginner surf lesson or two. Do I need anything in addition to a bathing suit? I was told I need a rashguard shirt and a pair of shorts - any thoughts on this? I figure the shirt might come in handy for me anyway as I'm pretty fair and burn easily, and I would probably use it on other beach days as well.

Just a bathing suit. They should supply the rash-guard with the board. Have fun!

I've never heard of a rash guard being supplied with a rental board and I'm not sure I'd want to wear it even if it was supplied. They aren't that expensive, I'd pick one up before I came. They aren't bad to have as they are good sun protectors also.

Don't forget the sunscreen!!! The most important item!

If you are just taking a couple of lessons, you really don't need anything other than a bathing suit.
