Surfing Lesson FAQs
do i have to be a strong swimmer to join a surfing lesson?
You don’t have to be a strong swimmer to take part in a lesson. For our beginner lessons we typically catch waves from waist depth. We do ask that you can swim 25 metres.
IS THERE ANYTHING I NEED TO BRING FOR MY SURF LESSON?
Please bring something to wear under a wetsuit and a towel. If it is sunny we recommend a bottle of water and some suncream. You may also wish to bring some flip flops for the walk to the beach.
WHAT WILL I LEARN IN A LESSON?
Our beginner surf lessons cover the basics of beach safety and provide you with all the information you need to confidently practice surfing in your own time. From catching waves, popping up, to steering and ocean awareness. We are surf geeks and can happily answer all your questions and get you surfing in no time!.
WHAT IS THE YOUNGEST AGE A CHILD CAN JOIN IN?
For group surfing lessons the minimum age is 8 years old. Our range of private lessons cater for children of any age.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS NO WAVES / BAD WEATHER
We keep a constant eye on the surf forecast and aim to anticipate ‘flat days’ in advance. We will always attempt to move your activity date or provide a Coasteering session in replace of any canceled surfing lesson. Depending on each situation activity vouchers can also be issued.
