On Tuesday afternoons in November, Sanibel Sea School will offer surfing lessons for students in grades 1-5. Participants will have an opportunity to learn how to surf for the first time, or to improve their existing skills.
“In this program, we will teach proper paddling techniques, how to maneuver the surfboard through the water, and how to pop up and catch a wave,” said Director of Education Nicole Finnicum. “Surfing is a great way to connect with the ocean in an active way, and we think every Florida kid should know how to do it,” she added.
Sanibel Sea School will pick students up from the Sanibel Recreation Center at 3:15 PM, or parents can drop them off at Sanibel Sea School’s Flagship Campus. Pick up is at the Flagship Campus at 5:30 PM. Participants can register for individual classes for $20 each, or sign up for the four-week series at a discounted rate of $75. Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more and register for after school programs, click here.
