    Finally! this would make surfing so much better! We need more people in the way/ line up missing waves..blowing take offs..dropping in..bailing on their board and on and on. On behalf of everyone here.. We will take the job.

    Shaka is appears to be an established SE surf shop/school and maybe they're doing some kind of surf teacher gig thing that might be of interest to members here. If anyone feels otherwise, please flag it.

    Two questions prease.

    Does the Shaka Surfboarting Skool require me to be able to swim in the oceans?

    Will my exceptional sand reconne skills be utilized?

    Asking for a friend...

    I believe surf schools have a purpose.
    And that's almost every time i meet someone at a bar or club, they want me to teach them how to surf. I ask "do you have a board?" Hell No, they want to use mine. Thinking if they can't take enough initiative to get their own sh*t then they are a waste of my time.

    Dude, I had some new guy at work over hear me talking about surfing and instantly says, "Hey, you could teach me how to surf!", like I would actually want to do that. They way he said it really annoyed me. It wasn't "will you teach me?" or "could we meet up?" It was like he was entitled to me teaching him. That conversation ended very quickly.

    If I were to be a surf instructor, I would approach it like Chandler in North Shore. First few lessons we would just sit and watch.

    See that guy paddling straight at the guy dropping in? Don't do that.
    See that guy hopping the shoulder of the wave with the guy screaming down the line? Don't do that.
    See that guy ditching his board to go under that 3 foot wave? Don't do that.

    We have several instructors at my local.

    I've never seen them actually ride a wave.

    The old adage: "Those who can't do...teach."

    I thought I should of worn a yellow vest when I was learning so others would know I'm a beginner. Today I was thinking I should still wear a yellow vest so others get the hell outta my way!

    Just to add to that... Ima start wearing my leash on my wrist and booties in the summer and a small Speedo when I go surf. Maybe that will keep people away!

    Do you have any SUPs with an EZ chair recliner in the back, a cooler mid ship with a badass audio video system built in, and a stripper pole (with pulsating lights) up front for balance? I would be highly interested in a quote as I have never SUPed before, but would like to try it out under the right conditions and then once I get good, teach a class. Kind regards.

    All of the above, plus a young hindu lady in a see through sarong to do all the actual paddling, too much work for me. She can also teach the class while I sip on a PBR and watch Barney Miller on said audio video system.

    OK yes all of this. I also want my iSUP to be about 19ft, have rod holders, cooler, bimini top, ample seating, and a 85hp motor with remote steering.
