Surfing is a complex sport to learn, and most beginners find that they need a dedicated coach to show them the ropes. You need to be very careful when choosing a coach because they can make or break your entire experience. Some of the tips that can be used when choosing a surf coach are:

Check Reviews

Check if the coach or school you are considering to go to has been reviewed by other people. Look at what they say their experience was, and whether they recommend them. Read as many reviews as possible so that you get the real situation. If you are still not sure after reading the reviews, you can reach out personally to some people who have used the coach and ask them further questions.

Ask for Qualifications

A good coach is one who has a Surfing certificate, accreditation to teach, and lifeguard skills. They need to prove to you that they know what they are doing and that your life will not be in danger under their tutelage. You should also check out their experience by asking them to share the list of people they have trained, and how they faired on during the training.

Outline Your Specific Needs

There are very many interesting

stunts that you can pull once you learn how to surf. Before you choose a coach, know what you want to do with your skills, and then look for a coach who is knowledgable in what you want. Do not approach a coach before knowing what you want to do.

Check for Personality

Things are easier if you are working with a coach who has a rapport with you. This means that you should have a few sessions and meetings where you establish if there is a connection between you. Remember that this is someone that you will be working closely with, so you need to have a flow.
