INDEPENDENT SURFING

INDEPENDENT SURFING

As a guest at the Rincón Surf Resort you are welcome to take advantage of the swell whenever you want. Included in your package is unlimited use of surfboards from our “Standard Quiver.” Additionally, you have access to our “Advanced Quiver” for an additional fee. This means that you can grab a board and paddle out. You may want to head out in the afternoon to practice what you learned in that morning’s lesson, or take advantage of the sunset as the waves start to build. Independent surfing is a great option for more advanced surfers looking to get in the water as much as possible and for beginners looking to practice and hone their developing skills after a lesson.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

3 Hour Sessions

Each session here at RSS lasts for approximately 3 hours. It is our philosophy that true learning can happen in a 3 hour lesson.

  • Day 1 only – 30 minutes dry land training/orientation (discuss objectives of the lesson)
  • 2 and half hours of surf instruction in the water.

One 3 hour lesson is a good way to learn and not be overwhelmed with too much information, but multiple sessions is really the way to become a surfer.
