Do you need to book in for lessons?
Yes. It’s best to book lessons prior to the day to avoid disappointment, (especially in peak season Dec/Jan). Once we have reached our class limit we cannot add extras. We keep our ratios low for safety and so that everyone in the lesson has a chance to spend some quality time with their coach during each lesson. Book upcoming lessons.
Do we hire surfboards and wetsuits?
Yes. We hire both wetsuits and surfboards. You can book these in advance but times will depend on lessons. We have a wide range of surfboard and wetsuit sizes to suit all abilities and surfing styles. Hiring gear will require payment prior to use and signing our hire agreement.
Do we have fibreglass surfboards available?
This season we are introducing a range of fibreglass boards which will be available for hire and use during lessons. Hiring fibreglass boards will require a bond. These boards will be a great opportunity to try a range of sizes and styles if you are thinking of buying one and are not sure of what will best suit your abilities and style.
Do we sell surfboards and wetsuits?
Yes. We sell a range of surfboards from fun foam boards to fibreglass boards. We do sell used boards but these depend on availability as these are largely ex surf school stock. Grae is a wealth of knowledge about all things surfboards and is passionate about getting everyone onto the board which is right for them. The only wetsuits we sell are used ex surfschool ones. These are limited as we look after our wetsuits well and they do last several seasons. All surf shops will have a range of wetsuits to choose from.
What are your lessons prices?
Lesson prices depend on the type of lesson you are wanting. We happily cater for small and large groups sizes as well as individuals. View our price list and range of lessons.
What is the youngest age kids can start surfing?
Generally we take kids from 5 yrs old in our group lessons. It is important that younger kids are not scared of the water though as the coach has the responsibility of several kids in the lessons. If you are unsure you can book in to do a private lesson first to build your child’s confidence. Check out our Ocean Confidence Sessions. We also recommend that parents are nearby during the lesson in case the child needs help transporting their board to and from the water. This is always a great chance to take some fun photos!!
Is there an age limit for participants in surf lessons?
No, you are never too old to learn to surf!! All participants need to let us know prior to the lesson if they have any existing medical conditions. We have surfboards to cater for all abilities and flexibility to ensure you have the most fun in the water possible.
