My wife and I signed up for a surf lesson here on new years eve. We were a bit tentative about the size of the surf, the water temperature, etc. Lesson started with a quick gear up and drive to the beach. After this we spent maybe 10 minutes on the beach before hitting the water. I was unsure that this would be enough but our instructor, heath, made us feel very comfortable. The style of teaching was great and we were all able to get a good ride in right away. Our instructor catered to the different needs of the group with some of us learning how to pick and paddle into a wave while another was working on balance and standing up on the board. Really personalized and we all felt safe, warm, and happy throughout. I'd definitely recommend this spot!

The water can be a bit cold but as the quality of wetsuits, booties & hood are great you won't notice it! Some mega surf on wide, long beach.. Unspoilt & relaxed. Brilliant place to chill out!

Taught my kids how to stand on board in first lesson! Couldn't believe how much my kids enjoyed this couple of hours in the water!
