SouthernBeachSurfHouse Learning to Surf at Southern Beach Surf House in English
for Foreign visitors


Surfing is a fun sport.
Surfers are gifted people who get to enjoy this sport powered by nature.
It’s exciting to learn the dynamics and the rhythm of the ocean as well as enjoy this blissful workout and relax after you’re done.
Here at Southern Beach Surf House Surf School, (hereafter referred to as SSH) we will assist you in English, with what you have to learn and do to stand up on your board and enjoy the fun, using a 9foot or a 9’6”longboard called the Soft Malibu.
We will enlighten you to what you may and may not do for your and the others safety so that we can all have a good time at the beach.
Recently longboards have become a popular choice for beginners since the buoyancy and stability of a 280cm / 9ft+ board makes it easier to paddle out, stand up and ride your way in close to the shoreline.
If you’re contemplating on whether choosing a short, mid-length, or a long board as a starter, we suggest you start with a long board and work your way down to a shorter board, since a short board requires much stamina and technique.

After learning the basics and being able to catch waves on your own, you may choose to ride a shorter mid length 7’6” soft board called a Malibu Fun Board. These are a bit harder to ride compared to a long board since it has less stability and buoyancy however, once you get used to it, you’ll get to control and maneuver the board easier since they have less weight and volume.

Eat and Sleep Well the Night Before!
Surfing is a fun sport, but it is also a strenuous sport. Eat well and get enough sleep especially the night before your lesson.
Don’t party hard the night before.
Don’t skip breakfast on your lesson day. Such acts will jeopardize the safety of you and the others.
You may be asked to forfeit your lesson if we notice any of your inappropriate behavior and actions.

Meet in front of SSH

Your bath towel, beach sandals, shampoo, swim wear, clothing, sunscreen and drinking water.
(Have your swim wear on (especially for ladies) when you come over so that changing into the wetsuit would be easier and quicker. During the summer season, you can bring a T-shirt to wear over your swim wear for sunscreen instead of wearing a wetsuit.)

*Dont forget to bring Gatorade or the like for hydration during the summer season! The sun is brutal, and you can easily get heatstroke! We will have a cooler box ready.

Lastly, and not the Least Surfing is an outdoor activity
Surfing is a fun sport that could be done by anyone when the ocean is calm.
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 or we may have to call it a day.
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!
Thank you,
The SSH staff
