My cousin and I purchased one-on-one surf lessons at Florida Surf Lessons through our Great American Days gift certificate. As first timers, we didn't know what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. Erica, our instructor, was patient and knowledgeable, helping both of us get up successfully! We were pleased at how quickly we were able to start practicing in the water after a bit of beach tutorials. If you have the option, definitely choose something that is 2+ hours – we had a 2.5 hour lesson and it was the perfect amount of time.
While I can't speak for experienced surfers, this is the perfect activity for first timers like us.
A few notes: The day really dictates what kind of waves you’re going to get; we got small waves and very little current while others have apparently gotten large waves and a huge current. Check the weather before you go so you know what to expect. Also, you may want to wear a long sleeved water shirt and long shorts so the board doesn’t scratch you up. And make sure you lather the sunscreen on the back of your body!
