ya thats why i asked on here i cant afford 100$ per hour
Hey I don't know if you ever read the surf article in the beachcomber newspaper, but the guy that writes it gives lessons, I think his # is in the paper. You should definately talk to him, he is a veteran in the water, and a friend of mine had lessons from him and was pleased. Pick up a paper and check him out.
And just some advice, I tried surfing on my good friends shortboard alot and had a tough time, but recently got lent a longboard and it is sooo much easier. Even if you want to eventually ride fishes and shortboards, a log is a great place to start.

I have been surfing for 7 years and have given lessons for a surf shop back home in NJ. I am a senior at salisbury university and If you are interested I can give you lessons for 20$ an hour. You can rent a long board from chauncy and I can give you lessons right on 30th. Let me know if your interested.

My best advice that I could give you when I was struggling to learn is to practice your pop-ups. That for me was the biggest challenge–getting up lopsided or not quick enough creates problems dropping in which, if you run into trouble there, the rest is not possible.
What I did was practice pop-ups in my house, basically imagining a board under me, in a sort of push-up position. Then go right from prone position and bring your feet under you without dropping to a knee (and make sure your feet align as if there was a board under you). I also did this on my bed which made for an unsteady surface helping my balance a little more. That, for me, was when everything clicked. My next session out i popped up and made my drops without a problem, letting me focus on other aspects (going down the line, turning, etc.)
Man, I never thought to practice it on a bed or mattress, thats a great idea...

Maybe if you ask your old man real nice he'll give you some pointers for free. Which gives rise to an interesting question- how many of you out there actually took lessons and how many started from skim boarding or sponging? Just curious. If you like, I can give you some free pointers or beach side lessons if you like. Just say the word and I'll see what I can do to accomodate. I've got time, plenty of it.

the first thing you need to do is get yourself a bigger board. The smaller the board the longer it will take for you to pick it up. The wider and longer the board, the more stable it is. I would suggest if you are just starting out, get yourself a board bigger than 7 foot. Possibly a fun board. Once you master it then go back to your thinner faster short board.
