Usually, students use soft-top surfboards and teachers give direct instructions in the water while pushing students in the waves.

Surf Guiding

As for surf guiding, teachers give a briefing about the surf spot matching the student’s abilities. Then, when in the water, the teacher provide technical feedback to the student. At the end, the main goal is to make sure the student catches as many waves as possible.

To summarize, whereas surf lessons are a more direct form of teaching, surf guiding involves the teacher to provide safety and insights before and after waves.
