Marcus is a great teacher, it was my first time surfing and he got me standing up in no time. He gave me the right advice in the right moments. I was in LA on holidays from France, and that was definitely a highlight!
I have surfed a little in the past (in Texas, so take that as you will) but never had an official lesson so my bridesmaids took me to Huntington Beach for my bachelorette party! We were a bit nervous but Ed did a great job educating us on surf safety, pop up positions, and what to expect. He brought wetsuits that fit us perfectly (yay!) and two different types of boards (I love the Greco!). Out on the water, Ed was the picture of PATIENCE! We had a group of 4 so that’s a lot of girls to babysit but Ed paid attention to each of us and made sure we had PLENTY of opportunities to catch waves. For beginners, Ed teaches you to ID the waves and assists in giving you a little push to make sure you’ve got the necessary
momentum. After each wave, we’d get immediate feedback – comments about what we could focus on for the next wave and, of course, a lot of CHEERING us on!! I felt like such a ROCKSTAR every time I caught a wave because I’d look back and see my girls and Ed hooting and hollering and fist-pumping 😀 One of my bridesmaids is a mother and she wants to fly her kids to HB just to have Ed teach them – no one else would do. I wholeheartedly agree 🙂 Thanks again for an unforgettable bachelorette surf experience, Ed!!
