Surf lessons for beginners

We have 2 teenagers and put them in 2 lessons each. They were really happy and 2nd lesson build nicely on what they already learned. If we stayed longer I would book another set as well. They were also very accomidating with times.

Great Experience

Kat was fantastic with our 12 & 10 year olds. Had them both up & riding waves & they loved it. We & they felt safe with Kat in the water & we now have our 12 year old daughter wanting to take up surfing! Highly recommend :-)
