2016 Here We Go!

 January of 2016 started off with a big El Nino bang with pumping surf and a few wild rainstorms.  It is now early March and the swells are still lining up. It has been almost impossible to give a 'good' lesson and most of our middle school surf competitions have been post poned until later in the season.  Hopefully the ocean will mellow out a bit.

 Rusty and I took the opportunity to drive down to Punta de Mita, Mexico early January to surf and reconnect with old friends.  We scored on both counts.  82 degree water and beautiful 3-5 foot offshore surf. It was sort of like Hawaii without the crowds and high prices of lodging and dining. We were aided in our journey by our good friend Josue Villegas who is the owner of Tranquillo Surf.  He rents boards, really good ones, and also offers lessons and has 3 pongas for local surf explorations.  He is the guy you want to talk to if you get a chance to get down there!  Tranquillosurf.com.

 The Viking Surf Team is off to a great start and after 2 events held so far we are third in Division 1 and second in Division 2!  This will be our first year in my 11 years as their coach that we have two teams now and I am so stoked as it allows another  14 surfers a chance to show their stuff and compete.

 Rusty, Peggy and I are gearing up now for our  29th year as KAHUNA BOB'S SURF SCHOOL continues to evolve and grow. New this year is an emphasis on intermediate lessons for surfers who have moved past the surf camp stage.  We will be offering a one hour lesson on your own equipment.  After a short beach drill and stretch on the beach, we then will hit the water to assess  your paddling ability and watch your technique dealing with the whitewater.  Once we get you onto the outside waves we will see where you are with your wave judgment and timing. At the end of the hour you will have a better understanding of what it is going to take you to get to the next level. 

 Our summer camps will run again from June 13th until Labor Day. The camps run Mondays-Fridays from 9am-Noon each week with the exception of July 4th where we will pro-rate a four day camp as Encinitas restricts us from the beach on the 4th of July. Our two hour learn to surf classes with all equipment supplied are still offered year round, weather permitting,  and are still only  $75.00 per person. It's going to be another great year down on the sand at Beacons Beach, Encinitas, California, whether you are just getting started or would like to register for a camp.  Kahuna Bob, Rusty, Justin and Spencer will get you up and stoked and keep you safe as you learn the greatest sport of earth. Call now for appointments and registration at  1 800 KAHUNAS Aloha for now and stay stoked on surfing!
