Did you know that all OSU students can catch the stoke of surfing while earning a Physical Activity Course (PAC) Program credit? Instructor Dan Hasselschwert guides PAC 247 students through the course. Participants learn about the history, terminology, safety precautions and equipment associated with the sport that began with the ancient Polynesians and is loved by countless. The class culminates with a 2-day field trip to the Oregon Coast, where students put the knowledge they’ve learned into practice as they paddle out to the lineup for an unforgettable session.

Watch the video below from the May 20-21, 2017 weekend outing to Agate Beach in Newport, and see how fun getting your surf on can be!
