Endorsed by Curators:
What is Pay it Forward Surf Sesh: It's when an experienced surfer teams up with a beginner and share there wisdom and joy of the ocean. This is not a surf lesson but more like a surf buddy and maybe one day a good friend on land.
Paying it Forward will be rewarded by the Surf Gawd's of Karma with Awesome waves on there next surf sesh!!!
My goal is to host this every other week, I'm only one person, so if you surfed more than 3 times, find a buddy, Pay it Forward, and Post on the Message Board that you would like to Pay it Forward :).
About Rat Beach
The most beginner and novice level break in the South Bay without any tricky currents, with a nice flat gradual bottom and a safe feeling like your are in a big swimming pool. RAT has a pretty mellow break and isn't that crowded Saterday mornings.
We will meet at the gate at the far end of the parking lot past the Gazebo, for the trail down to the beach (Beach Access on the photo) and will be paddling out between the where the trail ends and the RAT lifeguard tower. (ignore the yellow arrows pointing into the water on the photo). We will promptly walk down at the start time. (Please be early).
Parking is free
*Weather Cancels: such as rain, wind, or surf size or lack or thereof.
Note: No beginner instruction or gear will be provided.
If you need to rent, Dive n Surf is down the street in Redondo Beach or you can "rent" a foamie from Costco.
