Guided Surf Session
Are you an intermediate or advanced surfer who wants some pointers and want to surf some of the best breaks on the Great Lakes? Let our experienced ISA Certified instructors take you on an adventure and show you the way. We check the conditions daily, and send you a weeks warning followed by a confirmation the day before the lesson. We can meet at the break or give you a ride.

- Surfboard and wetsuit rentals (optional)

- Concise version of forecasting workshop
- Wave scouting
- One-on-one in water coaching

Wave dependent surf activities will only show up on the schedule when there are waves and we are running activities.
Terms & Conditions
You can cancel your class online or through our app up to 24 hours before class start time to avoid losing the class. We do not accept email or phone cancellations. If you have not canceled your class, you will receive an email the following day to advise you that you have been late canceled.
LATE CANCEL PENALTY
Our late cancel policies are based on student feedback to help create a more fluid and relaxing sign in. If we hold a spot for you and you don’t show up it means that someone else could not get into the class and this is frustrating for people who have made the time to show up. NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS are given for classes missed.
If you have a 5-class pass, the class you missed will be automatically deducted.
We are sorry, but we cannot make individual exceptions. You have until 24 hours before class starts to add yourself in or remove yourself based on your schedule, so you can always wait until you know you can definitely make it to save your spot!
Even when a class appears full, you may, and should, add yourself to the waitlist. When a cancellation is made, the first name on the wait list gets automatically added to the class, and you receive an automatic email and/or text message at the time. Once you get added to the class from the waitlist you become responsible for attending or canceling.
LATE ARRIVAL PHILOSOPHY
If you are not signed in at the desk or at the beach within 10 min before class starts and there are students hoping and waiting for a spot in class, we open the available spots in class to those who are on the waitlist, and your reservation might thus be forfeited. We also start our classes on time and will not accept any late entry to classes.
INTRODUCTORY & PROMOTIONAL PASSES
You must show valid Photo ID with each class attended (whether that is on a 5-class pass or Introductory class). The name on your identification must match your name on account. This is so we have the chance to get to know you! No extensions or holds. You must not have taken ANY classes at Surf the Greats from October 1, 2017 to qualify for either of these introductory passes.
COMMUNITY POSITIVE SPACE
The world can be a tough enough place as it is. Treat your fellow participants with consideration and respect … and if someone looks like they’re new to the studio don’t be afraid to say hi and let them know the lay of the land in a compassionate way… remember we were all new to a studio at some point.
