What do I need to bring for my surf course and how can I prepare?
Here is a little list of essentials: *1 Sunscreen (at least SPF30 and waterproof) *2 A pair of board shorts or surf leggings (such as those produced for triathletes by Underarmour); longer is better as you will protect your legs from a rash from the rough surface of the surfboard. *3 A rash guard for when your surf course is over (during your course you must wear one of our Swell rash guards). *4 Surf booties: we surf over a reef which in itself is not sharp, but there can be sea urchins between the rocks; if you bring surf booties, you will prevent getting any of the little spikes in your feet. We recommend Rip Curl, Billabong, O’Neill or Quicksilver split toe booties, at least 2mm thick; they should be a snug fit. Clare will send you an email with links to follow to prepare for your surf course, including some great exercises you can do to improve upper body strength; essential for paddling and popping up.
