Just got back from lessons for my two daughters 16 and 12. It was a fantastic experience for them and the instructors and setting is fabulous! The lessons are 2 1/2 hours which my youngest felt was a little too long. My advice would be to book a couple of lessons but have some space in between - maybe every other day or every two days would have been better for us rather than two days running as every bone in their bodies ached - particularly the ribs!! It is an excellent school the instructors and staff can't be faulted. The addition of a surf photographer was great - I now have some lovely pictures of the children trying their best at surfing! Would definitely recommend for any age.
