East Coast Surf School held their first annual women’s only surfing clinic on Friday July 21, at Lawrencetown Beach.
East Coast Surf School, owned and operated by Nova Scotia’s first and only professional surfer, Nico Manos alongside his wife Jill have been teaching surf lessons at Lawrencetown Beach for the last 12 years.
Lawrencetown Beach is well known for its consistent waves, and the surf did not disappoint.
According to their Facebook event page, “This main objective of this fun surf event is to encourage more women to try surfing and hopefully get more women in the water surfing on a regular basis.”
Instructors walked students through all aspects of the skills needed, starting on land with demonstrations and practice, then moved into the water for the real deal.
