Lessons include wetsuit and board rentals, wax, beachside parking, and informative teachers with years of surf instruction experience. Each session will have a land segment, where the instructor will give a thorough beach lesson to solidify fundamentals. After that, they'll paddle out and catch waves. To schedule your first lesson, contact the Higgins Beach Surf School at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit our website at www.surfhiggins.com
In addition to teaching lessons, the Higgins Beach Surf School is dedicated to endorsing and spreading surf culture throughout the East Coast. Like East Coast skiing, East Coast surfing is often forgotten behind the shadow of the dominant West. It's time to break this trend and find pride in the East. After all, one of the world's best surfers, Kelly Slater, is East Coast born and raised. To get in touch with this cause, follow the Higgins Beach Surf School's Twitter and Instagram accounts, as well as the official website.
