It's not possible to learn surfing in one day in a pool. I don't think paying that much for a lesson that the Philippine Surf Academy is charging is worth it. What you learn in the pool may not necessarily be what you face in the ocean and it will definitely cause me to be out of money really fast. La Union locals and Zambales locals would probably do a better job without the expensive fee and it's in a real beach with real waves.
But if the instructor is female and really hot, then maybe it might be worth it.

Well Dom, you sound like one of those guys that wants to be into surfing for the wrong reason. Our academy is not restricted to the wave pool, we are very much mobile and most of our students accompany us to the beach. We don't go to the mainstream popular surf places. We take some of our repeat students to places where surf has only just been discovered, and yes they do pay more than the lessons that are available elsewhere.

What reasons do i need to be interested in surfing? Meeting girls, singing, dancing and socializing with other surfers are just some of the things that beginners bring into the lifestyle. That's what people do when the surf is flat, is it not?
To be able to handle myself in a situation in real surf is the kind of lesson that i'll put my money on. So what you're saying is that because i choose to have Zambales or La Union locals teach me surfing makes it wrong? The popular destinations are popular for a reason and not for the reasons that you want to be correct.

Are you and this guy Tim doing business together?
It seems that you two are the only ones i've noticed that push your schools in this forum. If you two are one in the same then you guys are nothing more than scam artists out to make money from an activity that is supposed to promote a sense of freedom from the everyday stresses. If you click the link, you'll see that one set price does not exist but is decided on whether one is from abroad, naive or both. I read in the beginning of this forum that spamming users with your new: surf camp / boat charter / accommodation etc is not wanted.http://www.globalsurfers.com/forum_posts.cfm

Whatever you say. You are right with all your posts? Anyone with any brains will realise that I am wrong right now.

I'd like to let everyone know that I am not here to just promote the Philippine Surfing Academy. Surfing in the Philippines is very young and it is growing at a rapid rate. PSA does a good job at helping promote and expose surfing to the people of the Philippines. We are doing our best not only to promote PSA, but surfing as a whole. We have clients that have had lessons at either the wave pool, or at one of our surf locations. Many of our students want to try places where we dont conduct lessons because there are already surf coaches available at those locations. We strongly suggest to our clients to only surf with an experienced coach when they go to those locations.

so you guys that are critical of what Paolo and I are doing, think twice. We are generating business for the whole surfing community. Our clients go to Zambales, La Union, Baler, Siargao and even to Bali and we tell them to make sure they at least pay a coach to instruct them where to go and keep an eye on them. So business that was never going to come is helping local coaches in those areas.

Rich kid. Thats very a serious threat. You sound like an Internet Gangster. Can you really follow through? Probably not, you are probably just a puppy.
