I am so glad we signed up with the North Shore Girls for our first surf lesson! Our instructor had us both standing up on our first wave. She really knew how to pick the best waves for us, and when we started to get tired she would put her foot on our boards and tow us out there. The women was ripped!
However, surfing is not for the weak. Both my husband and I consider ourselves to be in good shape, and this kicked our butts. I was soooooo sore the next day, though it was totally worth it.
One tip - if you're planning on surfing on your vacation, do it towards the end. My husband kicked a rock when he fell off of his board, and his foot became infected. He couldn't go snorkeling or do any of the beach activities that we had planned after that. So definitely do it, but plan accordingly.
Ok, two tips. Although NSSG provides rash guards, you can still get pretty bad board rash on your legs if you're just wearing a bikini bottom. I wore knee-length board shorts, and I'm glad I did. No board rash for me!
