Ce vei face

I give lessons for all skill levels, this is an example of a beginner's surf lesson. The lesson will start with a greeting at the beach. From there you will be given a SPF rash guard to protect your skin. At this time it is advised to put sunscreen on your face. We will start with a short warm up that consist of a couple easy exercises. Next, I will talk about equipment & how to safely handle your equipment (surfboard, fins, & surf leash). Then I will demonstrate the basics of surfing. I will go over body positioning on the surfboard, paddling, the pop up, when to pop up, & stance (feet & body positioning on the surfboard). You will practice this a couple times on the beach. During this time we will distinguish if you are a regular foot or goofy foot, thus telling which foot you will wear the surf leash on. Then, we will move to the waters edge where I will give directions on where to enter & exit the water. I will explain the way the current works & how to use it to your advantage. I will point out the area where we will be surfing & explain how to safely get back there after riding a wave. I will then ask if there are any questions before we enter the water and go surfing.

My name is Josie Graves and I have been surfing for 30 years. I started right here in Isabela, PR. I grew up surfing the beaches on the NW coast and have learned so much about the ocean. After a professional career in surfing I starting teaching others to surf. I have been teaching others to surf for the last 7 years. In this time along with my personal surfing experience I feel confident in giving an awesome surfing experience! The joy you get from surfing is pretty magical and being the one who gets to give that to others is pretty rad.

Unde vei fi

Jobos Beach is a great beach to give a surf lessons. There is a sand bar where I give most of the lessons. In the event that the waves are too rough at Jobos beach the lesson may be scheduled at a different beach. I use Rompeolas Beach in Aguadilla as a back up beach. This is a beautiful beach with a sand bottom and is also great beach to give a surf lesson.

I had a super positive experience surfing with Josie. He has surfed this area his whole life and is an extremely experienced surfer, so he was able to share a lot of information about how and why the waves break where they do, which really deepened the experience. I am a beginning level surfer, and Josie was able to build the instruction throughout so that I feel I really made progress throughout the lesson, without being overwhelmed with too much information at any point. I felt safe on the waves at all times, but we also built up to taking more challenging waves as I got more comfortable. He also teaches/coaches more intermediate and advanced surfers, and we talked about skills that I could work on building over time if/when I spend more time surfing. As an added bonus, we got really lucky and there were sea turtles swimming all around us at Jobos.

Josie is a wonderful teacher with a great way with students of all ages. He tailored the experience to suit the needs of my son. As my son was a beginner, he helped teach him the basics but as he got better he gave him more challenges. He has respect for kids and didn’t dumb things down or condescend to him which we all really appreciated. My son left with new knowledge and feeling like he had a new friend.

My wife surprised me with the best gift ever.. Surfing lessons!!! I have always wanted to surf ever since I was a kid growing up on the island but never got the chance until a week ago when my wife and I stayed with Josie & Maria. I love long-boarding on my free time so I was extremely pumped to ride the waves. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to teach me how to surf. As soon as we got to the beach Josie gave me a crash course on how the board worked, how to handle the board in different situations so I don’t get hurt by an incoming wave, how the waves work, the current of the ocean, what to avoid, what to look for, etc. He basically explained everything I needed to know before getting in the water. Then he got me to stand up on the board a couple of times on the sand and off to the water we went. Once we were out there he explained when to start paddling and and what you want to see from a wave before taking it on. First couple of times he pushed my board and told me when to stand until he saw that I was getting more comfortable. Then it was all me, but he would always tell me when to start paddling and when to stand up which was nice for my first time so I could really get the hang of it. He made it extremely easy and so much fun to surf. He got just as excited as I did when I would ride the wave. Which made me feel I was doing good and gave me more confidence for the next wave. He’s very attentive the whole time and always giving you feed back on what you should do or try. I became a natural pretty fast, not saying that to toot my own horn, all thanks to Josie. I can’t be more thankful and grateful to have learned from him! He’s the best! Josie you made me check off one more thing from my bucket list. Thanks for making it an unforgettable experience.
