Pick the Right Waves:

When your little dude (or little lady) is ready for that first solo wave, just go for little chunks of whitewater at first. Forget about unbroken swells since these will increase the nose dive factor on the drop. While a good wipeout builds character, some kids will shut down if they get scared. Once they have several waves under their belts, most kids will be ready for a drop in on a small open face.
The key at this point is to push your kid into as many waves possible to eliminate that fear factor and introduce the comfort factor.


Standing up

Try to encourage your child to “pop up” as soon as he feels the push of the wave. A little surfer at this level doesn’t need to worry about turning or anything else besides getting on both feet with his body’s midpoint squarely over the midpoint of the board. He shouldn’t lean forward or back. Instead, encourage him to keep his eyes fixed on the beach and his feet and arms spaced wide like a sumo wrestler.

Now you're Surfing!

If you get your kid to this point and he loves the rush, you are home free. The rest is simply practice and experience. Where to sit and how to paddle and how to turn will come as you and your child surf together. Now you just have to pack an extra board every time you head out for a session.
Have Fun!!!
