Why Choose Private Surf Lessons?

Private surf lessons are the best way to take your surfing to the next level quickly and safely. Our instructors will give you one-on-one attention to teach you the skills you need to advance, regardless of your skill level.

We recommend private lessons for surfers who have already started learning the basics and want to improve more quickly, or for those who want personalised attention. Beginners can learn the basics just as easily in our public group lessons, but private lessons allow you to learn at your own pace and focus on the specific areas where you need the most help.
