    Anyone on here give lessons in winter in OCMD, or nearby?

    I've been meaning to learn how to surf for the last few years. I had hoped to learn in winter, since we tend to get a little better waves and there are definitely fewer people in the water. I can do pretty much any time, even weekdays, after the first week of February. Thanks, and sorry if this is the wrong forum!

    I do. I can't imagine this single digits nonsense will last forever, and I don't mind getting in mid 40s water with the right wetsuit. If anyone has a rec, I'd really appreciate it.

    Hey if this guy wants to shell out some cash and learn and accept kookdom that's honorable. Asking for help is good and probably the best way to learn surfing. When I was a grom kook I got washed on the lighthouse rocks pretty gnarly at point Judith and some older wise guys gave me the most degrading look as I squeamishly squabbled over the lighthouse rocks.

    Go to a beach break and hit the slow rollers first but also offer a wise surfer some cash for his attention. It could pay off.

    Me, just head south, that's the enigma. Don't stress about the stigma. Bring a latex doll and a Go-Pro

    That's the thing. I'll be driving a few hours, so I'm not tryina waste my time doing idiotic things in cold water. I'd rather invest a little more cash on the front end, get the right instruction, right rec on a board, etc, so I get more enjoyment down the road. Thanks

    not busting just making sure you understood how cold it is. never been a big fan of instruction. surfing is not something that is easily taught.
