What to Expect

We will teach you all the basics you need to know to get you surfing. First you will be given a warm wetsuit & surfboard to suit your ability and then we will go onto the beach where we will show you the techniques before heading out into the water. You will only be waist deep and our experienced instructors will be with you in the water for the first hour and then you get to use the equipment for the additional half hour.
