Today we hit Main Beach in Byron for a very special surf lesson for our Hiroshima Juniors! The lovely Blake from Let’s Go Surfing picked us up outside the school at 9am and we headed to their shop to get fitted with wet-suits and surfboards.
Here are the guys, all ready to hit the beach!
The next thing we did – stretching! Very important before hitting the waves.
Everyone gathered around as our lovely instructors Sally and Victor explained the basics of surfing and how to kneel up on the board when in the water.
Safety in the water is top priority. Below, our instructor Victor explains what a rip is and how to get out of it if we encounter one in the sea.
After a while in the water, everyone got back out again and the instructors demonstrated how to stand up on the board when in the water.
Our Hiroshima Juniors having an awesome time in the water 😀
What better way to finish our surf lesson than with a picnic by the sea. We are already looking forward to next week’s lesson!
