Beginners Surf Lessons

All our surf lessons last for 2hrs+ unless you are getting a private lesson.

Arriving At The Surf School

On arrival at the surf school your instructor will allocate a wetsuit (boots, hoods and gloves if needed) and surf board, then guide you down to the beach where you will be briefed on equipment, beach safety and the basic surfing techniques.
Next it’s into the surf to practice these skills under the safe guidance of your instructor.
Students are required to be present at the surf school 10 minutes before the lesson begins to allow time to get suited up and maximum time in the water.
Lessons begin and finish at the surf school building.
All equipment Surfboards and Wetsuits are provided, so all students need to bring is their swimwear, towel and sun screen.
Changing facilities are supplied at the surf school.

In The Water

Ideally the student should be able to swim prior to taking a surf lesson but this is not essential as beginner lessons are held in waist depth water, more than sufficient for learning, so the student will never be out of their depth and always able to touch their feet on the sand during the lesson. It also allows the more nervous students to move at their own pace, get to grips with their new environment, while the instructor is always close by in the water. We cater for students from aged 8 to 80.

We use a ratio of 1 instructor to 8 students.

N.B – We highly recommend anyone considering taking up surfing on a regular basis to become competent swimming in deep water

All equipment is provided so all you need to bring is your swimming togs and a towel!

Wetsuits

We use full length 5 mm Rip Curl wet suits and have a large range of suits to fit all sizes. For the winter months we supply boots, hoods, and gloves if needed.

Some people may prefer to wear their own wetsuit or boots. This is not a problem once it is suitable for the conditions i.e. wearing a shortie or 3mm wetsuit during the winter months is definitely not recommended.

SurfBoards

We supply a range of 6’6”, 7’, 8’, 9’ and 10’ soft stable surfboards that are easy to balance, paddle and surf on, to suit all ages and abilities.
