Wake surf lessons for beginners

Beginner

The rider will learn the “Wake Surfing start” using the rope in order to get to a standing position on the board. From there, the rider will learn proper surf stance and good form. The goal will be to use proper technique to maintain the pocket in order to drop the rope and then free surf behind the boat.  The rider will then be introduced to basic tricks such as carving turns, balance maneuvers, floaters, and ollies.

Intermediate

Riders who already have the skill to surf without the rope will learn some more advanced maneuvers in order to enhance their Wake Surfing experience.  This skill set will include tricks such as bottom turns, slashes, board slides, ollies and airs, and 360s.  The rider will also be introduced to switch riding, backside riding, and surf side transfers.

Those who are already proficient at switch stance riding will be introduced to tricks such as alley oop, air 360, air 180, and air reverse.  Riders will also be introduced to body varials and shuv-its.
