LeaderSurf is focused on making participants better leaders through teaching them to surf.  Always wanted to learn to surf? This program is for you.

LeaderSurf Has Chosen Three Great Locations to Learn to surf

LeaderSurf performed an exhaustive search to find the ideal locations for our leadership programs.  Finding locations which great learning conditions for surfing was only part of the challenge.  We also had to find the right partners who could teach our surfing lessons.  The locations in Folly Beach, Nosara and Playa Santana each offer great waves and the ideal locations for learning to surf.  With consistent waves and sandy bottoms the beaches we have selected offer beginners the right conditions to quickly hone their surfing skills in a non threatening and safe environment.  Couple that with our expert instructors and we are confident that LeaderSurf participants will be riding waves by the end of the week.

With consistent daily swell, warm water and sandy bottom surf spots, LeaderSurf has chosen the perfect locations to teach our participants how to surf.  Lessons start on the beach with fundamentals before participants and the professional surf instructors enter the water.  We maintain a good ratio of instructors to participants, never having more than five participants assigned to a single instructor.  These small class sizes insure that each participant receives the attention required to progress their surfing skills quickly.

"WOW!!! I still can't get over the surfing experience. I'm so amazed that I could do it. And I'm truly excited for the next time I will go surfing. It was fantastic to learn something that I never thought I would ever learn. A great way to get out of our comfort zones and put all the participants on the same level. It was just beautiful! I miss the surfing already!"

Learning to surf much like learning any new skills takes practice and repetition.  Given the excellent learning conditions, most beginners are up and riding their first waves on their very first day in the water.  The surf instructors work on fundamentals and break the lessons into specific areas of focus that accelerate the learning curve.  We will use video and photography to provide visual feedback to the learners.

Aura and Rayito LeaderSurf instructors

"Aura and Rayito were incredible! They were talented, patient, humble, made us feel comfortable with the mechanics of surfing they genuinely took an interest in us as people. When it comes to qualities of an ideal teacher, they checked all the boxes and more. I think we all learned a lot from them."

"Rayito and Aura were awesome, patient, and catered to each individual's needs."

"What a heart. For surfing and for others. Aura feels like someone you've known forever even though you've just met her. The best teachers in anything are those who have the sort of passion that makes you immediately want to know what they know - and she certainly does that."
