Whitlock Surf Experience: Let It Ride

March 24, 2015 3:12 pm

Imagine suddenly being able to fly. The air is a cushion below you. You’re floating on it, riding it, surrendering to it. How long can you prolong the ecstasy?

Surfers say that’s what it’s like to catch a wave. Carlsbad’s Whitlock Surf Experience lets you in on the secret with lessons, camps, and equipment rental. Surfers of all skill levels are welcome; a two-hour, one-person lesson is $99, including a full day rental of a personal wetsuit and board. A two-person lesson is $85, and a lesson for three or more people is just $75, rentals included. A two-hour, single person lesson in Stand Up Paddle Surfing—the Hawaiian method of using an oar to paddle far out to sea—is also just $99. Locals call the instruction a great value, friendly, unpretentious, thorough, and safe.

The website is light on rental and camp information, so get in touch for more details.
