Our classes are taught by highly trained certified ACA instructors.  The tools you will learn in the classes will give you invaluable skills to be both efficient and safe on the water as kayakers.

Surf Zone Class for Kayak Anglers (Half Moon Bay)

If you want to fish on the open ocean with a sit on top fishing kayak, this class is a must! This class will focus on how to read the surf, how to handle breaking waves, and how to launch and land in the surf zone safely. Launching and landing, bracing in breaking waves, and understanding wave dynamics are the fundamental building blocks for sit on top kayak surfing and paddling in the ocean. Our site is ideal, close to Surfers' Beach at Half Moon Bay.
