I looked up surf lessons online as part of a multi-day road trip I was doing with a buddy. Flying in from out of country, it was a toss-up as to who to pick, so I went with the easiest to understand web page. :)
We had an amazing instructor who was not only personable and extremely engaging, but an expert in teaching limited skilled people how to do some real surfing. I've done lessons with OTHER instructors before, and so I feel I can give a little bit of context to why Lovewater is so great:
First, Lovewater wants you to surf and have a great time. The instructor will ensure you get out into the best conditions (whitewater, or very small waves - nothing crazy or dangerous), so you can do just that.
Second, Lovewater provides insight into what a surfer is looking for in the water/waves. I got thorough explanations as to what constituted a good wave, when I should be paddling, and when I should be standing. Every time I stood and fell, I got an explanation as to what I did wrong, and felt more confident in my next attempt.
My buddy and I did the semi-private lessons, with just the two of us. It was such an amazing experience. Thank you again for the great time, Lovewater!More
