ISA Surf Level 1

This course offers a baseline of global knowledge for best practices for surf instruction and is a necessity for any surf instructor

Prerequisites: Must be a competent surfer, meaning you must have the ability to safely negotiate the surf, catch open face waves, be proficient in going down the line, and adhere to proper etiquette at the beach and in the water.

Follow Up Requirements: In order to receive the ISA Surf Level 1 certification from the ISA you MUST complete the following within one year, in addition to sitting the course:

* ISA Surf Level 1 Workbook with signed Coaches Code of Conduct

* 20 documented practical hours after the course
- Participants can document hours by logging their next 20 hours of surf instruction in their ISA Surf Level 1 Workbook. This can be accomplished by teaching at surf schools, volunteering with non-profit organizations that host surfing clinics, or through private instruction.
- Participants send their Session Notes and Venue Analysis records (included in the ISA Surf Level 1 Workbook) every 5 hours of surf instruction to their Course Presenter via email for analysis and comment (checking in after instructing 5, 10, 15, and 20 hours).
- Seasoned Surf Coaches with extensive surf coaching and instructing experience may be considered for “Recognized Prior Learning” (RPL) by submitting a resume or CV of their experience for approval by SEA and ISA. Please note, we encourage only those Coaches and instructors with many years teaching with established credibility to apply for the RPL process, as very few individuals will get approved for RPL. (There is a $40 fee associated with the RPL process)
