General orientation and guidelines
Introduction to the ACT model
Applying ACT to surfing
All meals are provided and participants are encouraged to eat together in the dining room.
Time to get stoked!!
Participants will attend their first group lesson. Local experts will help you get suited up and pick out a soft-top board followed by dry-land training, safety etiquette, and practising your skills before heading into the ocean to catch some waves. Wetsuits and boards may be kept after the lesson for more practice and fun! Getting out of the wetsuit is a lesson itself and surfing, though exhilarating, can be exhausting so no other sessions are planned for the first afternoon.
The communal meal after an afternoon in the sea is an important opportunity for forming new relationships, bonding, and supporting one another in a lighthearted and relaxed way.
Come together for a quiet reflection and appreciation for the day we've had. Perhaps a gentle stretch of our bodies as well.
See what the ocean's got in store for us today! One of the joys (frustrations) of surfing is that every day is different. We bring something different to the ocean each day as well. Let's be mindful of both this morning.
You will be hungry.
Behavioural analysis of individual and shared experiences thus far.
