The quality of attention during a private surf lesson has proven to be the best way to learn to surf.  If you feel like you are serious about learning to ride waves, private, one-on-one, surf lessons are encouraged. If you have a few friends or relatives tagging along with you to the beach, then give a private group surf lesson a shot - they are also are a great way for beginners to learn how to surf comfortably amongst friends.  

All surf lessons are conducted on Easton’s Beach just outside of Downtown Newport. All of our lessons are one-hour long and include the necessary equipment.  They start with our 'dry lesson' to cover the basics of paddling, popping up and surfing etiquette. We help you determine what type of stance is best - goofy-foot or regular - and how to properly position yourself. 

The second part of the surf lesson is the 'wet lesson' - catching and reading waves in the ocean with your surf instructor by your side.  With your own personal surf instructor analyzing all of your positioning and coaching you in the water, you will be free of distraction and laser-focused on ripping waves.

All surf lessons include a surfboard, rashguard and/or wetsuit included in the price of the lesson. Rhody Surf is the recipient of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine’s Best Surf Lessons in Rhode Island and is Newport’s only surf lesson provider. As a business exclusively located directly on the beach, Rhody Surf lessons are incredibly convenient and easy to find. All of our surf lesson students receive complimentary beach parking during their surf lesson.
