Time to Check This Off Your Bucket List
Life on the Emerald Coast is all about taking full advantage of the coastal lifestyle. And that, of course, includes the beach. Gentle to moderate-size waves are perfect for first-time enthusiasts looking to rip and ride some swells to shore. There are loads of surf and sport shops with everything you need to gear up. And if you want to check surfing off of your bucket list or sign your kids up for a fun summertime camp, check out the Ride On Surf School (rideonsurf.com) located behind Captain Dave’s restaurant in Destin. It offers private and group lessons (March through August) along with weeklong surfing camps. A half-hour mini-lesson is just $30. For local surf spots, weather updates and a full surf report before you hit the beach, visit surfline.com. Don’t forget to load up on sunscreen and plenty of water before you hit the beach to hang ten.
