    We all had a great time. The crew kept the kids entertained and corralled and the adults laughing with their banter. Whatever the crew gets paid is not enough! There were a number of younger children there but I think it is best suited for ages 5 and up.

    Surfing at 60-Plus with Coastline Surfing School

    If you want an extraordinary surfing experience your first time out, look no further. Jennifer Steffener and her team at Coastline Surfing School provide excellent teaching, a wealth of surfing experience, patience, homemade fruit salad and vegan muffins.

    Our group of long-time women friends, 60 to 66 years old, signed up for a Saturday August afternoon of Women’s Yoga and Surf Camp and were in for a ride. The day was sunny and temperate and the waves choppy. Later, we found out that the waves were called, “Victory at Sea” because they were not easy surfing waves. In fact, no one else was surfing in our area of Brick Beach that day -- those Victory waves are gnarly. :)

    Coastline had given us the option of paddle boarding in a gentle cove or re-scheduling. But we had traveled far to get there, so we decided to stay.

    The five of us had never surfed before. We’re a collection of professionals: an epidemiologist, lawyer, mental health counselor, English Professors/Writers/Filmmakers. We all moderately exercise, practice yoga, can swim, and have watched a multitude of surfer flicks from Elvis and Gidget to Soul Surfer and The 100 Foot Wave. But none of us had ever remotely surfed.

    Jennifer and her partner, Lance, and assistant teachers Stephanie—a young competitive surfer who lucky for us had flown in from VA that morning to help with our group, and Lou—a septuagenarian veteran internationally competitive surfer—met us in the parking lot with good cheer and wet-suited us up. They brought us to our private shaded spot on the otherwise crowded beach, and Jen started us out with gentle yoga stretching.

    Then they each offered expertise when teaching the five W’s—like “Wind”—we learned it was about 15 knots that day— and “Warnings.” They then brought us to the shoreline and helped acquaint us with our “best friends,” the boards.

    Later, each of us talked about how we had separately decided not to go into the water. Yet, with Jennifer and her crew’s skillful help, encouragement, and one on one accompaniment, we all did. In fact, we repeatedly rode waves. Again, after saying the first time out we’d only do it once, we quickly got hooked and wound up going time and time again accompanied by Stephanie, Lance, and Lou while Jennifer supervised. We rode waves until we were utterly and jubilantly exhausted like when we were kids who had been tossed by waves all day.

    At the day’s end, Jennifer asked us our takeaways. We each talked about how we faced private fears of breaking waves, sharks, and falling. And how empowered we felt by barreling past those fears and riding the glorious and powerful Atlantic white caps into shore.

    Albeit we fell off the boards just about every time. But closer and closer to shore each time. And we were mostly riding on our bellies or kneeling, and falling as we tried to stand. But in a wonderful moment, my sister and I—without knowing— both rode in at the same time, one knee up—The Buddha, they called it.

    Jen ended with a beautiful blended tai chi and qigong lesson of “The Snake and the Crane” and sharing life stories. We were exhilarated and entirely spent. Jen and her team told us we were courageous warriors. And we felt it. We’d do it again in a heartbeat and are already making plans to surf with the spirited teachers of Coastline Surf School.

    I signed up my 10 and 13 year old grandsons for private sailing lessons at the NJ Sailing School. The 10 year old had had a week of sailing camp in their home state previous to this but the 13 year old had never sailed before. Both were first given basic instruction on land before manning their individual Optis (Optimist Class sail boats). The 13 year old struggled at first while the 10 year old did well right away. Optis tip over easily but the boys were soon tacking and jibing with no problem. The instructors, Andrew and Austin, were excellent. At all times, they followed the boys around in a motor boat shouting out instructions and making sure they were safe. The lessons lasted 2 hours (there is a 2 hour minimum) and cost $50 per hour each. It was well worth it. The boys told me it was the best part of their week-long vacation and they did many other shore activities. I expect them to both continue with sailing lessons in the future. I would definitely recommend this school for kids wanting to learn how to sail.
