We run beginner surfing lessons for all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Our beginner surf lessons focus on performance and surf awareness. Learning about the ocean is just as important as being able to stand on a surf board.
Our aim with our beginner lessons is to provide the greatest fundamental surf knowledge to our participants, so they can eventually surf confidently and safely on their own. As coaches, it is our duty to train others to be confident in their own abilities and judgements. Surfing is a sport where you need to think fast and then be able to react, which is why it is perfect for confidence building and training every day motor skills. It does not matter what your skill level or age is, our coaches are trained professionals at recognising your abilities and being able to work with them. There’s absolutely no reason to feel nervous or out of place in the ocean.
Their are many reasons why people want to learn to surf. Some people love the challenge, others want to train to become professionals, but most of us just want to learn surfing because its fun and keeps us in good shape. Thats how we all start, whatever your goals are, we have the resources and knowledge to help you.

As a student, to succeed: I must always try to keep a positive attitude towards learning, even if I am met with challenging surf conditions. I am doing this for myself, and because I am truly passionate and curious about surfing. I will try to hold a realistic expectation for myself and not be disappointed when I don’t immediately achieve. I am willing to listen and receive advice by experienced professionals, who may also be a lot younger than I am. I understand that 95% of surfing is surf awareness, board handling and paddling, while only 5% is standing on a wave.
I understand that to learn I must always try my best first, before expecting a coach to do the work for me. I understand that coaches may be bold at times, but it’s with the intentions to keep me safe and assured, while in a potential high risk environment. If I am feeling odd about something, I make sure I always communicate it with my coach.
Surfing develops confidence and mental fortitude.
