Surfing at Florida Prep

East Central Florida: it’s the home of Kelly Slater, Ron Jons Surf Shop, and Cocoa Beach. It’s also the home of the Florida Prep Surfers, a unique physical education credit elective offered to high school students at Florida Prep.

Former world-wide travelling surfer and physical education instructor Mike Lynch, explains the surfing option at Florida Prep. “It’s a formal class,” says Lynch, “not an opportunity to cut classes and head to the beach. We have high expectations and students are graded accordingly. Those expectations include written papers, CPR and First Aid, along with active participation."

"We welcome students looking for the opportunity to learn or continue their surfing at Florida Prep, and of course our location speaks for itself with surfing year round."
