My OC Surf Lesson also offers bodyboarding lessons for all ability levels and all ages.
The lessons can be as laid back or as formal as you like, with the emphasis being on learning in a fun, no pressure environment.
We run lessons all year round primarily at Salt Creek State Beach.
Bodyboarding offers a more accessible option to catching waves than surfing, it’s safer and the rewards come much quicker, whilst to master the sport at the top end the skill level is just as high as surfing. (check out the video below)
Each lesson includes two hours of instructions plus bodyboard, swim fins and wetsuit rental for the whole day so you can enjoy your new skills after your lesson.
Anyone can learn to bodyboard!
Most people can learn basic bodyboarding fairly quickly. You can go from riding whitewash to actually riding a wave much faster than with surfing. The more advanced maneuvers like spinners and rollos come after more practice.
Literally anybody, as long as you can swim. If you’re younger than eight you need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian as well. The upper age limit is open to anybody that feels they fancy a go.
Our team of coaches includes pro bodyboarder Eddie Solomon, Salt Creek local Mike David, and sometimes guest coaches such as 2X World Champion Andre Botha.
