Learn the basics of surfing quickly and with plenty of fun!
The first half-hour of your lesson is spent on land discussing the in’s and out’s of surf technique and learning about the ocean. Then, we hit the water where the remainder of the time is spent!
We pride ourselves on our success rate in teaching people to stand on their surfboard in their first lesson.
We have all the necessary equipment ready for you to use, including ‘soft top’ mini malibu style surfboards and 3/2 mm wetsuits to make your first surf experience as safe and comfortable as possible.
Once you’ve had your first lesson you’ll be hooked and wanting more, so take a multi-lesson course to learn more than just the basics of surfing. Your first lesson will teach you the basics of standing but there’s so much more to learn! In your second, third, and fourth lessons you’ll perfect your standing skills, then learn to turn, and after that, we’ll teach you how to get surf ‘out the back’ and ride the green-faced waves.
