During my visit in Tel Aviv I wanted to try to surf since too many years had passed since first time I tried, and I was recommended to try a lesson at Beachfront Hostel, with Asaf.
I booked a lesson and met the teacher and two other participants in front of the hostel, and I got all the equipment needed that was included in the price for the lesson. Perfectly fitted wetsuit and a beginner surf board, since I was the less experienced one. We carried our boards to the beach and started our warm up practice on sand, that consisted in using our core strenght to jump up and down from the board and to padle. When Asaf found us to be ready, we jumped in! I was afraid I would freeze, since I'm quite a pussy when it comes to cold, but the wetsuit was formidable for this purpose. Our teacher Asaf, who is thia super cool dreadlock king with an immense patience and a visibly warm heart, gave us safety instructions and followed us to the point where we where gonna start riding the waves. He helped a lot by telling us exactly when to jump on the board when the perfect wave was arriving. He took time to guide us and also to feel the real surfer's vibe so we could safely try on our own with his supervision. I had the time of my life and while I was waiting for one of my last waves before lesson ended I sat on the surf board and glaced at the long sand beach with the skyscrapers in the back. It was breathtaking! What an experience this was! It was worth the price of the lesson and I will definitely return in a near future! Thank you, Asaf and thank you Beachfront hostel! This experience I will never forget
