This package of two surf lessons is ideal for anyone who’s new to surfing as it allows the best introduction to the sport. On the first session we cover the basics from how to carry a surfboard, to catching and standing up on a wave. The second session is the one where you see the most progress. Having already experienced catching a wave and starting to get to your feet, we can really work on your technique, and confidence in the sea.

This package is also beneficial to anyone who has surfed before and are looking to progress their technique and work on any additional skills, such as paddling out through waves or catching green waves.
