SICKDAY SURF SCHOOL

WHAT TO EXPECT

Personalized surfing lessons covering everything from the source of swell to the terminology and etiquette of surfing. Our professional instructors are all CPR certified experienced Surfers who are known for their surfing talent and are well respected within the New England Area. Our goals are to get you comfortable and knowledgeable in all aspects of surfing, and to get you WICKED STOKED...to have lotsa fun.

Each of our instructors has been trained in SICKDAY Surf School’s experience-tested teaching techniques, and is fully CPR certified. Now in our tenth year of lessons, SICKDAY Surf Shop has been teaching surf lessons longer than any other Cape Cod surf company. Since the first lesson in 2004, we have remained true to our founding vision of hands-on instruction in private and small group lessons. Unlike other surf companies, we limit our lessons to a maximum of 4 students per instructor. This means more waves, more attention, and more success for every student. That’s the SICKDAY Surf School experience.

One Hour Private Surf Lessons

Time flies in our 1-hour private surf lessons. From suiting up in a well-fitted wetsuit to standing up to carving turns, our surf instructors will give you the personal attention and direction you need to take your first step, or your next step towards riding like a pro.

For beginners, the 1-hour private surf lesson offers a broad introduction for an economical price. Our 1-hour private surf lessons are a great option for fast learners who want to build a solid foundation of surfing knowledge and technique. The lesson will begin on the beach where one of our surf instructors will meet you with a properly sized wetsuit and surfboard from SICKDAY Surf School’s Quiver. Once your wetsuit is on and you are looking like a pro, our surf instructor will guide you through the basics, including safety, terminology, technique and etiquette in a fun and interactive on-shore portion of the surf lesson. From there, you and your instructor will hit the waves for 40+ minutes of water time. First-timers will work through SICKDAY Surf School’s unique pop-up progression with the full attention and support of their instructor. With the guidance of our knowledgeable instructors, many students manage to stand and ride a wave by the end of the 1-hour surf lesson.

For more experienced surfers, the 1-hour private surf lesson offers an opportunity to hone your skills without breaking the bank. Our experienced surf instructors will cater to your individual needs, whether that means focusing on a specific series of tactics and techniques, or offering a broad spectrum of instruction and advice.

Regardless of a student’s ability level… our philosophy at SICKDAY Surf School remains the same. We strive to provide the highest-caliber of surfing instruction without neglecting the importance of having fun! At SICKDAY Surf School we firmly believe that the best education is as enjoyable as it is rigorous.

Two Hour Private Surf Lessons

If our 1-hour private surf lesson is an appetizer, then the 2-hour private surf lesson is our most popular entrée. Best described as meatier than the 1-hour private surf lesson, the 2-hour lesson is a great option for students who are looking to not only learn how to surf, but also practice new surfing skills with the guidance of one of Cape Cod’s finest surf instructors.

Whether you’re a first timer or an intermediate ripper, our 2-hour private surf lesson is the best choice if you’re looking for in-water results. With over 90 minutes of water-time, the 2-hour timeframe allows students the opportunity to “nail” every new skill.

Like our 1-hour private surf lesson offering, the 2-hour lesson will begin on the beach where one of our surf instructors will meet you with a properly sized wetsuit and surfboard from SICKDAY Surf School’s lesson quiver. Down on the beach, our instructor will guide you through the basics of surfing; including safety, surfing terminology and technique and surf etiquette in a brief on-shore session. Next up, you and your instructor will hit the waves for 90+ minutes of water time. First-timers will work through SICKDAY Surf School’s unique pop-up progression with the full attention and support of their surf instructor. With the guidance of our knowledgeable surf instructors, the 2-hour lesson is the best choice to get you standing and riding the waves by the end of the session.

Semi-Private Surf Lessons

Are you looking to book a lesson for more than one person? Our Semi-private lessons are private lessons for parties of two or more. The only difference between our private surf lessons and our semi-private surf lessons is in the pricing (see below for details). Our semi-private surf lessons pack the same amount of expert surf instruction, individual attention, and guaranteed fun for all. As always, our student-instructor ratio is limited at 4 students per instructor. If your group exceeds 4 students, we will bring along a second instructor to your surf lesson… It’s that simple.

Surf School

Sign-up for SICKDAY’s Surf School and learn why all SICKDAYs are best surfed with friends. SICKDAY Surf School’s 3-hour, open sign-up surf lesson is more than a group lesson. In the words of one SICKDAY Surf School staff member, the SICKDAY Surf School is best described as the generic group lesson’s hotter, more fun cousin.

The SICKDAY Surf School is 3 hours of all-inclusive fun. Like our private and semi-private lessons, each day’s Surf School begins when your surf instructor meets you on the beach with a well-fitted wetsuit and surfboard from SICKDAY Surf School’s Quiver. Once you have your wetsuit on and are looking like a pro, your expert surf instructor(s) will guide the group through the basics in a quick and interactive on-shore session. In this portion of the lesson, your instructor will cover the topics of water safety, surf terminology and technique, and surf etiquette, and give you a chance to practice your pop-up before hitting the water. Next up? Over 2.5 hours of water time… That’s over 150 minutes or 900 SECONDS OF FUN.

The best thing about SICKDAY’s Surf School is that what you do with this time is totally unique to you and your surfing abilities. If it’s your first time popping-up, our expert surf instructors will guide you through SICKDAY Surf School’s unique pop-up progression with ample time to practice each step and engrain the fundamentals of learning to surf. If you’re comfortable with the basics and looking to take your surfing to the next level, our surf instructors will provide the advice and feedback you need to learn and master new surfing skills in a fun and productive venue. Because SICKDAY Surf School limits the student-instructor ratio to 4:1, Surf School students are still guaranteed the individualized attention SICKDAY Surf School is known for.

The SICKDAY Surf School experience is not one you will quickly forget. For more information on how to book the radest lessons in town (or anywhere, really) check out our FAQ page, look below for multi-lesson packages or give us a call at 508-488-WAVE (9283).
