This two-day course - which is taught by Tom Noffsinger (L5) - lets you focus on intermediate and advanced sea kayak surfing skills. The first day will focus on specific skills in a logical progression. Day two will involve more free surfing time, accompanied by specific one-on-one coaching about your individual progress. The goal is to accelerate your skills with two surfing-specific days on the water. If conditions allow, we will also provide video review and feedback.

The course will be held at Metompkin Inlet on the VA Eastern shore. It has very reliable and often big surf.

You'll learn about on-wave positioning, adjusting your speed while surfing, recovery from side-surfing, top turns, bottom turns and how to deal with close-outs. On-land topics will include strategies for different wave formations, use of the shoulder for breaking waves and staying on the peak of spilling waves. Previous experience in the surf is required, ideally through a surf zone strategies and sea kayak surfing courses. A helmet is required along with the ability to self-rescue (cowboy, re-enter and roll, roll, etc.).
