It is an obvious assumption that if we teach our children to enjoy and appreciate the ocean they will respect it. Ocean activities such as Surfing Lessons are a great way for children to have fun, get exercise and see first hand the amazing sea creatures that inhabit our sea. My husband is an avid surfer and he often tells me stories of sitting on his board in Los Angeles and Santa Monica while waiting for the next big set to come along and a see an otter or dolphin will swim by. Lovely. Of course if it were a shark, I might think differently.
