Beginner Surf Lessons

Who is this course for?

Our beginner surf lessons are for everyone.

You don’t have to be a great athlete – just willing to spend some time on the beach and in the ocean with us, having fun!

 

Your wetsuit, board hire, lunch and transport to and from the beach is included in the lesson.

 

Is it safe?

Our beginner lessons always take place in secure, waist-deep water and our fully qualified instructors will always be at your side. We keep our groups small so you will always have a dedicated instructor.

 

How quickly will I learn?

Everyone learns to surf at a different pace – it depends on individual talent and fitness. Whatever your ability, you’ll have a great time learning with us!

 

What will I learn?

Our friendly and professional instructors always start with the basics of surfing. How a wave works, how to paddle a surfboard to catch a wave, and how to stand up and ride your very first wave.

 

Will I feel safe?

Your safety is important to us – lessons start with a dynamic yoga-inspired warm-up on the beach to get you surf-ready. We always cover how to stay safe in the water and surfing etiquette, plus our instructors are with you all the time.

 

Why do I need surf lessons?

There’s a lot more to surfing than people might think! Learning with a qualified instructor will mean you’ll be doing all the right things in a safe environment from the start. Why not take a five or 10-day course to progress more quickly?

 

Instructors

All our surf instructors are skilled and professional, certified by the International Surfing Association (ISA) and the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS). We keep our groups small, always working to a maximum of eight students per instructor, in keeping with the recommendation of the ISA.

 

Equipment

Surfboards: For beginner lessons, we always use soft surfboards with soft fins to prevent injury. We also use extra-long leashes, so the board doesn’t drag you when you fall off, and you have some extra time to protect your body.

 

Wetsuits: Your body will be protected (from the sea, the board and the sun!) with one of our high-quality wetsuits from top brands include Xcel, Quiksilver and Roxy.

 

WARNING: The sun here is very strong, so we also recommend applying high-factor water-resistant sunscreen to the exposed parts of your skin. Sunscreen is available in our surf shop in case you forget to bring your own.

Intermediate Surf Lessons

Our advanced surf lessons are focused on helping surfers to have more fun by gaining more control and better flow and consistency to your riding in more challenging waves.

 

What will I learn in intermediate surf lessons?

This course will help you improve your bottom turn and to learn top turns or cutbacks, how to duck dive, and how to take control of your speed. Progress from passively gliding down the wave to actively surfing it.

 

Learn how to generate speed, choose the right manoeuvres to stay in the power pocket of the wave, and how to improve your paddling technique so you use less energy.

 

Our instructors can also help with advanced take-off techniques to minimise wipeouts and help you acquire better wave-reading to avoid close-outs and get a better position in the line-up.

 

How do intermediate surf lessons work?

Short assessment on the beach and in the water will help to determine your surfing level, so the instructor can tailor the right training program with specific exercises for you.

 

Depending on your abilities and goals, we will help you focus on the right exercises and on choosing the right equipment.

 

All our surf instructors are skilled and professional, certified by the International Surfing Association (ISA) and the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS).

 

We keep our groups small, always working to a maximum of eight students per instructor, in keeping with the recommendation of the ISA.

 

How quickly will I progress in intermediate surf lessons?

It’s hard to predict how many lessons anyone will need to improve. Some students improve after three lessons, and others need 10 lessons or more. The average is somewhere between 5 and 10 lessons. As you know, surfing heavily depends on weather conditions, so we always recommend visiting us for a longer period of time – at least for week or two. The longer you stay with us, the better your surfing could be!
