Frequently Asked Questions about our Surf Lessons 

How big are the groups?

Surfing Group sizes vary depending on the level of ability and bookings on that particular day. Typically, tuition is provided along the industry guideline of a maximum ratio of 1:8 per instructor.

Do I need to hire equipment?

All equipment hire is provided free of charge during your surfing lessons with us. All you will need to bring is a swimming costume and towel.

Can I bring my own wetsuit?

If you have your own wetsuit that you’d like to bring along with you please feel free to do so! We provide winter wetsuits all year in order to stay warm for the entire lesson. Please check that your wetsuit is 5:3mm thickness

Are there any age limits?

Surfing: The minimum age is 6 years, we cannot accept children younger than this. The maximum age for our Kids Surf Lessons is 14 years old. If looking for older children to surf with other siblings we would recommend our Original Surf Lesson.

Do I need to be able to swim?

We do ask that all participants have a reasonable level of water confidence which would suit our  Lessons. Lessons are held in waist depth water, which make the activity safe and fun regardless of your swimming ability. Any questions please let us know.

What if there are no waves? 

Our Kids Surf Lessons will teach a range of skills and techniques in regards to surfing, lifesaving and the beach environment. It is very rare that it will be completely flat for kids as the boards we use are designed for small waves. These lessons will still help with continual development.

Does a parent need to be present during a lesson? 

Participants under the age of 8 must have a parent/guardian present on the beach for the duration of the lesson.  For any children 8+ our instructors are fully qualified and have years of experience working with children. We feel that children learn more and have an overall enjoyable experience with their peers if they feel like they are not being watched. If your child does not feel comfortable parents may watch from the shore line but please try not intervene in the lesson structure.
