I have been surfing since I was eight years old. Ever since it has been my passion to teach others the amazing sport of surfing. I can guarantee that within the first lesson you will ride a wave and be on your way to surfing like a pro in no time.
Harrison was extremely accommodating for me and my family. At the time my youngest daughter who was 9 years old begged me to teach her how to surf while on vacation in Deerfield beach. I found Harrison on this website and booked him right away for Saturday early in the morning. Unfortunately, our flight became delayed and we did not arrive in Florida until Saturday evening. I texted Harrison and rebooked the lesson for Sunday midday. When we met on the beach he reviewed everything there was to know about surfing before getting on the water which was a surprisingly short beach lesson. less than fifteen minutes into the lesson Harrison and my daughter were out in the water and I could watch as she was catching her very first waves. At the end of the lesson, I asked Harrison if he could record my daughter with our camera and he did so very kindly and now I have beautiful pictures of my daughter surfing her first waves. Next time I visit Florida I am booking a lesson for my whole family.
During the first lesson we get comfortable in the water and the waves, then we learn some of the basic safety precautions to take while surfing, next I review the basic steps of surfing, finally we hit the waves and perfect what we have learned
I have been an instructor of children through my work as a counsellor at camp and have taught children many skills they will use throughout their life. And I have also worked as a teacher for adults in art classes so I understand how to build confidence within children and adults.
One-hour personal lesson- $60
Two-hour personal lesson- $100
One-hour group (2-4 people)- $40 per person
Two-hour group (2-4 people)- $60 per person
I do not recommend lessons over 2 hours because surfing can become very tiring and it is best to not over-work yourself on the water.
I have worked will all types of students ranging from very young children to older adults. This has enabled me to be able to handle any situation and teach almost any student.
