We had never surfed before, and although we are all competent skiers (12 and 18 year old kids plus two adults) we were apprehensive.
But in the two hour session with Jason we all stood up and rode waves as big as we were comfortable doing. We wished we had taken up the option of a photographer at $20 per person as we have no proof !
Surfing was far more tiring than we had thought possible. Who knew lying on a surfboard and trying to stand up could be so exhausting? By the end we were wiped out (tee hee). This was with Jason doing much of the work - holding us in place till the right wave came along and occasionally helping our youngest paddle out through the waves.
As we surfed the day after the cyclone we were also comforted by the fact that Kat in the office kept in touch with us about conditions and adjusted our time slightly so that we were sure to be surfing within our capability level. We felt that a very good balance was struck between ensuring our safety and not disappointing us with a deferred lesson. Very flexible, very laid back.
