HOW IT

WORKS

"Our main focus is to ensure that you are safe and catching as many waves as you possibly can to get you stoked on wanting more."

We offer group and private lessons from complete beginners through to advanced starting from age 6+. If you can swim, you can surf. 

Once a booking is made, we'll meet at one of the agreed-upon beaches and change into our surf gear. We provide all the equipment needed such as rash vests, wetsuit tops, wax and sun cream. All you need to bring along is your swimwear and a towel to dry off after. 

We then head down to the beach where we hold a 15min beach briefing on water safety and basic pop up techniques. We then jump into the water where your instructor will be by your side and guide you wave by wave. Our main focus is to ensure that you are safe and catching as many waves as you possibly can to and get you stoked on wanting more

Our surf instructors are all local surfers & trained watermen. Each being qualified in basic first aid and ocean rescue techniques. It's safe to say that you will be in good hands!

Lessons are approximately 1hr long and are subject to weather conditions and tides on the day.
