A Safe and Structured Surf Lesson

Whether this is your first time or you have just started out – we will take you through all you need to know to get you up and riding.


Our beginner Surf lesson includes:

  • Stretching Exercises
  • Introduction to surf safety and equipment
  • Learning to ride a wave lying down (Prone)
  • Learning to stand up on your board
  • Your first turns

We welcome you, get changed up into our wetsuits, then it’s straight down to the beach for an intro to surf safety; your board; how to get out through the waves and most importantly how to catch them!

Then it’s into the water to get a feel for your board. To start with, we stay in the shallows so you can build your confidence and begin catching waves comfortably and riding them prone (lying down). Then it’s back to the beach for the next and most important part of your lesson – Standing up!  We show you the best techniques before heading back to the surf and giving it a go. This is where our coaches excel, keeping close to you at all times and giving plenty of coaching tips so you get the most from your surf lesson.

  • "The small groups meant we received very good one to one time with the instructor who was really friendly, approachable and supportive. It exceeded our expectations in every way and I would highly recommend your surf school"

  • Great experience for me (17) and my brother (10). Fantastic instructors and everyone in our group managed to surf standing up, as well!

  • Thank-you for giving such an enjoyable experience for not only our daughter but for us watching-the confidence she gained by being able to stand up on a board in just 2hrs is remarkable. Keep up the great work.  

    Trip Advisor Member

  • From the friendly telephone manner upon booking to the moment we parted ways after three little boys experienced surfing for the first time, we were treated like the most important customers ever. Top notch service, even against the elements Ed and Lewis remained motivational and encouraging. The instructors were able to hold the attention of the boys for the whole time.
