  • Develop confidence in the water with qualified instructors
  • Stand up on your board during the first lesson
Full description
Meet your instructor and get set up with the proper rash shirt or wetsuit and board and head to the beach. Begin your 2-hour lesson with a safety briefing and basic instruction. Once everyone has caught their first few waves in waist-deep water, you’ll return to the sand for more detailed instruction on stand-up procedures. The remainder of the lesson will be spent in the water with instructors helping everyone stand up. Most participants have low expectations and don’t think they’ll be able to stand up during their first lesson. When you and the rest of the group are successful, there’s excitement all around!

  • Long-sleeved rash shirt or wetsuit

Fantastic!!!

Such a great team. We loved our surf lesson so much and both managed to stand up. I had a whole days surf lesson years ago and couldn't even get on the board properly by the end, our teachers here had a great technique and a lovely style of teaching. Would definitely recommend.

Great time!

We had a fantastic time learning to surf with this company. The weather was raining but with the wetsuit it was not problem. We had a very large group and they did a good job of offering individualized support. One of the instructors actually dove in the water to straighten out my board so I didn’t completely wipe out. Great time!
