Learn To Surf For A Good Cause

Tacos, learning to surf, AND raising money for a good cause? Name a better way to spend your Sunday. This weekend you will find an opportunity to learn something new and support a local church on a mission! Our friends at Upper Room Church are hosting a single-day surf lesson this Sunday, May 5.


The surf lesson is a fundraiser designed to support the fundraising of their upcoming mission trip to El Salvador at the end of the month.

New to surfing or have always wanted to try? This is for YOU! The single-day surf lesson will be led by trained instructors from the Innerlight Surf Shop team and local surfers. This event is designed to be fun, focus on basic techniques, and give you a reason to come to the beach!

The lesson is offered to all ages and skill sets. If you are bringing a child, the parent must be present during the entire lesson. There is a suggested donation of $25 for participation.
