Beginner Level

The term “Beginner Surfer” refers to a surfer who has only recently begun taking surf lessons and starting to become familiar with the sport’s fundamentals, usually surfing a long soft top surfboard. After a few hours, a Beginner Surfer is able to maintain balance, paddling and catch some whitewater waves. In the end, an Advanced Beginner can catch a wave, get up on the board, and ride the breaking wave straight toward the beach.
