We specialise is small private groups or small mixed open groups were you will be surfing with either your friends and family, ‘or along side a small number of other keen participants, this way you will get more from the lesson and expert coaching, plenty of guidance and assistance in the surf and your waves won’t be over crowded by fellow participants.  We like to surf with safety as priority number one.  

We have a specially designed beach buggy that takes the boards to the waters edge allowing you to save all your energy for the surf, this is especially good for children who would normally find it a struggle to carry the learner boards. 

We provide the full length wetsuits and surfboards in the price of the lesson.
