We teach all of our lessons on shallow (about waist deep), low-tide sandbars. You will be able to stand the whole lesson and are close to shore (10-15 yards)
We also buoy a shark repellant device, called a “Shark Shield, which we float around our lessons. You can learn more about the device on their website.
Of course, no one can guarantee your safety in an outdoor sport like surfing. Surfers deal with sharks all over the world, however we are doing our best to mitigate the risk in the changing waters on Cape Cod and make sure you have a great surfing experience.
