Big Surf was founded to bring unprecedented value to those wanting to get a complete understanding of the sport of surfing in a short amount of time. Our instructors have a lifetime of experience surfing as well as many other qualifications in sports, education, and mentoring. Speaking with many novice surfers in the years leading up to the creation of big surf, we found that many surf school were not teaching the techniques students would need to surf effectively on their own. Most schools put an emphasis on students riding whitewater waves, which are much different than the unbroken waves people see surfers riding in magazines and videos. Due to the different techniques being taught many surfers would struggle mightily when attempting to surf on their own, and in larger waves. We understood that there was a genuine desire from new surfers to truly learn everything they would need to know after just one lesson, and so with that mission in mind we started Big Surf Adventures.
