Getting a child into surfing, whether it is your own kid, a family friend or other relative, can be a rewarding experience for the both of you. However, it isn’t always a walk in the par. Attempting to spark a child’s interest takes dedication, patience and a sense of humor. Looking to get a child involved in this gnarly sport? Here are some tips to help get the job done with minimal temper tantrums from the both of you.
Select the Right Beach: The beach you chose to teach the child can either make or break the entire lesson. Opt for a mellow beach that is not prone to crowds in order to take the pressure off the two of you. You should also try to find a beach break with a sandy bottom to make those inevitable falls a little less painful.
