Meet at Our Shop

Everyone should meet at our shop at least 15minutes before the start time of your lesson. You will be provided with a full length Quiksilver wetsuit and a soft beginner surfboard and walk to the beach.

The lessons begin on the sand with a safety briefing and some basic instruction.

We conduct almost all our lessons in waist deep water and consequently this keeps it safe for everyone. After catching some waves we will return to the beach for more detailed instruction about how to stand up.

The rest of the lesson will be spent in the water with the instructor helping everyone to stand up on a wave.
