Ydana Chella- Surfer, Surf Instructor. Working as a surf instructor for Northeast Surfing has allowed me to combine my two best talents, teaching and surfing. I have been teaching third grade for the past 15 years. Being a teacher affo rds me the unique opportunity to teach and surf abroad. I have taught and surfed in Bali, Indonesia, Costa Rica and Ireland. Each destination has offered world class surf, and have allowed me to experience some of my most memorable and gratifying teaching moments.
I started surfing in Hawaii on the island of Maui. From that moment I was hooked. Shortly after, I moved to San Diego, and surfed up and down the California coast My primary concerns as a surf instructor are simple. First, I want the children to leave their lesson feeling like they surfed to their fullest potential. This does not mean standing on the first wave and getting every wave thereafter. It is about surfing to the best of one’s ability. Second, safety is of paramount importance. All surfers will fall, beginner or expert. The important part is to get right back on the board and try again.
Rose Huston- Surfer, Snowboarder, Surf instructor. She’s always doing something active, whether it’s in the water or out. Surfing, paddleboarding, riding bmx, rock climbing, running, cruising on her longboard skateboard, or exploring everywhere she goes. She has been in love with surfing since the first wave ever caught on a cross-country road trip to California.
She has surfed up and down the East Coast, California, and Costa Rica, with aspirations of traveling to many more surf destinations. Rose is excited to be able to share her passion for surfing with you this summer at Nantasket!
