FREE Surf and SUP Lessons
Every Saturday Morning

Join Our Free Lessons Every Saturday from 7:00 am - 9:00 am 

Island Water Sports has been providing free lessons on Deerfield Beach every Saturday morning for the past 30 years. It’s our way of promoting a fun and active surf community. All experience and age levels are welcome as long as you can swim. Plus we provide all the equipment, but you're more then welcome to bring your own. Register online or in store today!

Free lessons are held every Saturday from 7:00 am until 9:00 am. Online registration will close once the maximum number of students have been met. If you are unable to register, you can still sign up for the paid group lessons at 9:30 am. We respect everyone's time and want to get the maximum time in the water having fun!

After you register you will need to fill out a waiver, we require a completed waiver for every participant.  If the student is a minor, a parent or legal guardian will need to complete the waiver.  We only need the waiver completed one time every 12 months.  After that, only a wrist-band is needed.  If possible, please download and complete the following form and bring it in with you.  Otherwise, we will have them available at the store for your convenience.

Before we can paddle out, you'll need to stop in at Island Water Sports to get your wristband, surf or paddle board and confirm your waiver has been signed. Anyone participating in free lessons must have their wristband to be able to attend. Once equipment has been distributed we will all walk down to the beach as a group and meet at the North Side of the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier.
