Experience an early morning 3 hour surfing lesson or coaching session, when the Sun's morning rays fan out from the Douglas Firs and Spruce trees at Oswald West State Park, front lighting the wave faces. (Sometimes the conditions are better at Seaside Cove and then we will teach there). Crowds in the water are minimal. Easy to find a parking spot. It's a special time of day to go surfing and the tidal times on these four dates are great for learning! There are four Dawn Patrol Sessions offered this summer for surfers. We can teach 3-4 students in this surfing lesson. Equipment rentals from Cleanline Surf Shops, in Seaside or Cannon Beach, must be done the day before the lesson date, since the shops don't open up until 9 am, after we are already in the lesson. Students will learn the 3 forecast tools to know when and where to go surfing, the 12 foundational surfing skills including paddling techniques and reading waves, safety with board and in the ocean. Gath surf helmets are provided in the surf lessons for all students, as well as a KIND bar and local Pacific Beaches NWWSC Tidebook. Book these Dawn Patrol Sessions with your favorite group of friends, family and coworkers. Or sign up solo and join a group of enthusiastic people with the desire to learn in an early morning ocean experience. Cleanline Surf Shops provide NW Women's Surf Camps students with a special full day rental package rate of $55, instead of regular $70 per package. You just need to tell rental staff at shop that you have a lesson with us to receive the discount. You will need a wetsuit, boots, gloves, optional hood, surfboard with leash. Softracks or tiedowns can be rented for your vehicle to transport surfboards.
