You will be learning to surf with passionate and experienced surf coaches. Our group classes are small to ensure you get individual attention for safety and maximize your potential. We provide an array of new surfboards and all the highest quality gear to create the most fun and comfortable experience.
Groups of similar level will usually be kept together, however it is normal for people to learn and adapt at different paces. There is no pressure to perform and the aim is to have as much fun as possible.
There’s nothing that makes you live in the moment like the exhilaration of catching a wave. However, with so much happening so quickly it can be difficult to pinpoint where you need corrections. Seeing yourself on photos and videos is one of the best ways to gain insights into movement and technique. Our experienced instructors can give you positive, constructive feedback to help correct your technical mistakes. It is also the perfect way to look back on how far you have come and the progress you’ve made within the week, as well as to capture lasting memories of your personal growth and transformation.
At our surf meetings, we come together to learn about the history of surfing and its language and culture. We learn about its origins and evolution into the sport and lifestyle which you are now part of. There will also be a discussion of surf equipment, such as the different types of boards and its unique components.
We also help you acquire a deeper understanding of how the wind, tide, swell and currents interact to create different types of waves, so you can learn to read tide charts, swell forecast and determine the best surf conditions on your own.
Surfing is a passion for all our coaches and they have a genuine love of sharing their knowledge and experience of the paths that brought them to where they are now.
