    Check in at our shop at 505 Front Street. We will provide water shoes and water shirts and also surfboards. After a quick land lesson about safety and how to stand up on your surfboard correctly, the remaining time is spent in the water riding waves just like the ancient Hawaiians did. When the lesson is over, we finish off back at our shop for fresh water showers and viewing of the photos from the surf lesson.

    This place was amazing got us all up and surfing. My only complaint is that after you have got the hang of it they keep helping you even if you don’t want help. Otherwise it was amazing and perfect.
