Lessons are open to surfers who can stand consistently with control in the white water and can swim a minimum of 50m! Junior surfers of 10yrs+ are allowed * . We will offer lessons for younger surfers at this level if they are good enough but require due to new procedures for a parent to be directly responsible and also in the lesson.

Lessons at this level cover skills such as paddling, catching and trimming along small unbroken waves plus an introduction to basic turns and speed control is also at this level. Knowledge in where to position to catch waves, how to read waves and how to time correctly plus wave etiquette, equipment understanding and surf forecasting.

These lessons can be bought as one off lessons or bought as a skill development package.

“My experience was great, at the start of the week the conditions weren’t ideal but the instructors, who i think had a tremendous blend of skill, experience and ability didn’t bemoan the conditions but instead had us working on technique, with drills that didn’t require perfect conditions; and that was exactly what i was after – something to help me move on from my surfing plateau.”
