Surf lessons & day trips
-What type of surfboards are used during the lessons?
We have soft foam boards that are ideal for beginners during the first few lessons as well as a range of mini-mals for those who want to progress their surfing. For surfers who have already mastered catching waves with larger boards we have a range of fiberglass and epoxy short boards for them to experiment with.
-Where do the lessons take place?
The lessons always take place at the most suitable beach on the day of the lesson.
-What do I need to bring for a surf lesson?
Bring with you:
boardshorts or bikinis
Towel or PONCHO
Surf practice with carver surf skate (best surfing training)
A lot of energy and enthusiasm
-What age do I need to be?
The minimum age for surf lessons is 5 years old and we ask that children under 10 be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the lesson in case they need to leave the water. Adults of all ages are welcome.
-Do I need to be able to swim?
Beginners do not need to be able to swim, although it is always an advantage for water sports. Lessons for beginners are held in waist deep water.
-Are people of different abilities grouped together in lessons?
Generally, groups of surfers of differing abilities are not mixed. We aim to keep people of the same level in the same group.
-How many surf lessons do I need?
We generally find that after about 6 lessons most people have learnt the fundamentals of surfing. After this, people can buy or rent equipment and practice a bit more or continue to train with us using video analysis in order to learn more advanced surfing techniques.
