Surfing is a fun sport that could be done by anyone when the ocean is
Unlike Skiing or snowboarding however, surfing is done in an uncontrolled environment, which categorizes it as a dangerous sport.
The ocean that you will practice in is constantly moving, and for a novice surfer, the odds may be against you at certain times.
The ocean is not your friend; it will not understand you, nor would it ever time out for you at critical moments.
You have to understand and respect the ocean for your own safety. We are here to support and assist you, but You will be responsible for yourself and whatever you do and take to the beach.
We will be there to assist you for your surfing and safety so we expect you to follow our instructions carefully and seriously.
If you feel safe by insuring yourself, we suggest you do so.
If you are driving over, please keep in mind that there are traffic congestions to alter
your arrival. We will start on time and we expect you to be here on time. Use the public transportation and enjoy your beer after surfing and return home safely. We look forward to seeing you
here at Southern Beach Surf House for your ultimate experience with our Mother Ocean!
