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.
