Beginner surf lesson. This lesson is aimed at 1st timers. We'll teach you basic water and beach safety, how to carry and use your surfboard safely, paddling your board and catching a wave, a good warm up routine and of course how to stand on your board.
Beginner surf lesson stage 2. This is for folks who have been in a few times and are ready for a new challenge. We take you a little further out ( it's ok we don't go as far as Norway!) and learn to catch smaller re-form waves . This is the next step on from white water waves. These waves give you much more initial speed so (believe it or not) make it easier ,with a little practice, to stand up.
Beginner surf lesson stage 3. This is where the fun really starts! The lesson is aimed at your move from the white water to catching unbroken waves. Here you're taught the basics of judging wave speed and steepness then positioning yourself in the ideal spot to catch the wave. This is the last stage before intermediate and all those cool manouvers of wave glidey fun.
Intermediate surf lesson. From here on in these lessons are for people who can happily ride unbroken waves but are having problems with an aspect of their surfing. We can help you on the finer points of 'duck diving' or choosing the right wave to catch, simply tell us what you want to learn and we'll try our best to help. All intermediate surf lessons are taught on a 1 on 1 basis (unless a couple of friends want a lesson together)
There's something fishy going on! Wondering what all this kerfuffle is about with the modern fish boards? Then come and find out. This is an intermediate lesson which will take you through the finer points of riding a twin fin fish board and show you the advantages (and pit falls) of riding these boards. Price same as an intermediate lesson.
1 on 1 surf lesson. Any of the beginner surf lessons can be taught on a 1 instructor per person basis. This is perfect if you feel like you'd rather try surfing by yourself rather than in a group. Also It can help you to advance that little bit quicker with someone with you all the time for that extra confidence.
Mini courses. The Surf school also offer advice on all other aspects of surfing from surfboard repair to wave forecasting to competition theory. If you let us know what interests you we'll let you know when spaces are available
Surfing is a fantastic sport and with a bit of persistance quite easy to learn. All you need is a reasonably good sense of balance and be able to swim 50 metres in a pool.
