    For many, surfing is an organic, almost spiritual experience, enhanced by remote, exotic destinations. In a way, surfing is an art in itself, a form of expression that journeys through all levels. With this ticket, you can get a step closer to your dream of riding the waves. Meet your guide at the redemption point and head toward the vast sea to enjoy an authentic experience the way it should be. The activity covers boards and equipment and lets you in on the anatomy of waves, body position and stance, and basic techniques ranging from paddling to walking the nose. After being briefed, you get to show-off your acquired skills in the sea. Soak up the inspiration from other surfers around you, and keep at it until you grasp the waves and truly embrace them.
