Farmdog Surf School is the place to get NSSIA-certified surf instruction and coaching. Certified instructors include partners Robert Farmer, Aaron West and Joe Sherlock, who offer group surf lessons, standup paddleboard (SUP) tours, SUP yoga and surfing day camps for young and old. They are all stoked to give surf instruction to anyone excited to learn. Typical lessons for beginners include learning the lingo, safety and surf etiquette, stance, wave dynamics, paddling, catching and riding. Easy, right? Whether kids and adults are looking to learn the basics or more experienced surfers are looking for help on technique, form and stunts, the Farmdog team is on it! Something they do that we particularly appreciate are the special surfing classes taught by women just for women. They provide the boards and gear you need to get started, with private and group lessons available. Farmdog also offers daily or weekly rentals for items such as surfboards, standup paddleboards, skimboards, kayaks, bicycles and many other essential beach items, including tents, chairs and umbrellas. Their website is packed with good information, rates and videos. Their surf shop offers t-shirts, sunscreen and watersports equipment.
