Surf Clinic at Otter Rock!

DSCN1887

Oregon Surf Shop held a Surf Clinic last week for a group of kiddos – Wee tiny to about 15 years old. Three adult instructors – a couple of more adult watchers – and all of the equipment – Boards, Gear, & Transportation.  These kids were Fired Up to learn to Surf!

Even though Lincoln City was fogged in, this little cove known as Otter Rock, or the Devil’s Punch Bowl State Park – was Fog Free. Those little red dots by the trees are the kids in the Surf Clinic.

Hard to photograph with a chinky camera against the setting sun – but this little shadow is Nate with the instructor behind him.

It looked a lot like dads trying to get boys to learn how to ride a bike.  These were two of the most patient loving dads I’ve seen in a long while!

If you are in Lincoln City – and you’d love to give your child “The Best Day EvAr – Epic Day” (as per Jon) – I’d head down to the Oregon Surf Shop and look into an afternoon of Surf Lessons. It will be a memory to cherish – and experience of a lifetime.  Caution though – We’ve gone out 3 times in the last 5 days now.  They’re hooked.

From their website – “Includes everything you need to get your surfing career started; board, wetsuit, boots, gloves and an experienced instructor. Please give us a call 877.339.5672 and we can make a reservation for you or your group to get started enjoying the experience of surfing today.”

This afternoon was hosted
by a couple of members of our Vineyard gather-ers.
I was not paid or asked to promote Oregon Surf Shop –
Just sharing our day with the world.
