Beginner (2 hours)
The beginner lesson is aimed at total newcomers to surfing. Once you’ve been kitted out with all your gear you’ll learn everything you need to know about beach safety, paddling techniques, how to catch waves and finally the fundamentals of getting to your feet on the board. By the end of your lesson you will be wondering why you didn’t start sooner.

Improver (2 hours)
So you’ve had a few lessons, caught the surfing bug and are looking to further develop your skills? Our improver lessons range from Level 2 to Level 5 and cover aspects of surfing such as turning your board, gaining speed, duck diving and catching unbroken waves from further out to sea. We also offer a large variety of boards to suit the needs of the improving surfer.
