Swim Evaluation

For safety in the water, we need to know each child’s capabilities before water activities are undertaken. Once completed, the Water Safety to Junior Member ratio is 1:5. Any child not meeting the evaluation level will require a Water Safety ratio of 1:1 when involved in water activities.

Water Training

As part of your membership, there is an introductory board paddling and water skills course from the first day of Nippers until Christmas. This takes place at 8.30am each Sunday for the first 6 weeks of the season before the Nippers session and is free and voluntary.

Surf Sports

North Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club offers a huge range of opportunities for members to get involved in surf sports, from nippers to masters, and training with qualified coaches is held several times a week.

Surfboard with Flex

One of the biggest tips that beginners should follow when learning to surf is to go with a surfboard with a lot of flex. Flex is essential so that your body can twist around in different directions when you’re surfing. Having lots of flex ensures that you can keep yourself balanced and keep your body correctly working while surfing. Try to find surfboards that are made of flexible materials.

Board Size

The average surfboard comes in a variety of sizes. If you are a beginner, you want to make sure that you choose a surfboard that is appropriate for your height. If you are unsure about how to buy a good surfboard, ask for recommendations from experienced surfers. You can request one of them to accompany you on the shopping.

Good Shoes

The next tip that is a must for a beginner is to find good shoes. Shoes that have a lot of treads are better for beginners. Make sure that they fit you perfectly. Shoes for surfing can come in different styles, but they all generally have open toes and heels that are comfortable and fit snugly against your foot.

Read Surfing Magazines and Books

When learning to surf, the best tips that a beginner can get is from someone who has been surfing for quite some time. Surfing magazines and books are a great place to learn all of the basics that you need to know to be a successful surfer.

Online Research

If you don’t want to go through the trouble of buying surfboards from a surf shop, then you can check out some of the tips that people have posted online. There are even websites devoted specifically to beginners in surfing. There are many advantages when it comes to finding surfing information online rather than from surf shops.

Proper Attire

One of the last things you should make sure to do before you go out onto the ocean is to wear the proper attire. This includes a good pair of sunglasses that can protect your eyes. Surf clothing also helps you blend in better with the other surfers out there, especially if you are a beginner.

A good swimsuit enables you to keep cool and dry and prevents you from getting sunburned, which is a major concern for beginners. These are the main pieces of apparel that beginners should consider purchasing when they are getting started with surfing.
