Levels

We’ve broken down the different stages of surfing into levels. Check through the levels below to find the best course for you. If you’re not sure which level you’re at, our bookings team is on hand to help you figure it out.

 

Find out here your surf level

LEVEL 1:
BEGINNER 

If this will be your first time surfing, Level 1 is right for you. Our highly experienced team will guide you through the first stages, getting you standing on the board and teaching you vital information about handling yourself in the water. We aim to get you to beaches with small, manageable waves, gradually building your confidence through the week.

 

LEVEL 2:
BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE

So, you’ve surfed a few times before and definitely have the basics down. Now you want to improve your pop up and get into the green waves. Level 2 provides the coaching you need to get ‘out back’. You’ll learn essential surf etiquette and advice for safety in the water, all the while honing your skills towards an intermediate level.

 

LEVEL 3:
GREEN WAVE RIDERS

This is our intensive, intermediate course – ‘Green Wave Riders’. If you’ve already got your confidence up and are happy in green waves but you want to perfect your pop-ups, get to grips with a few turns and cut backs, and generally catch more waves on your sessions, this is the course for you. We will train you to choose safe places to surf, forecast the conditions and feel comfortable going out on your own as an independent surfer.

 

LEVEL 4:
ADVANCED COACHING WEEKS

You’re confident ‘out back’, have a great pop-up, and some basic cut backs and turns. Now you’re looking to advance your skills. This course trains you in improving turns, duck diving, positioning, speed, control, cutbacks and a variety of other techniques. Video coaching throughout the week from our advanced coaches means you can monitor your progress, seeing exactly how and where you need to improve. Getting to the best waves of the day is essential for this course. Whether that’s a 6am dawnie or a sunset session, our coaches will get you to the right beach at the right time to take advantage of the best waves.
