If you have just arrived and are looking to get out in the water to try what you see everyone else doing, because “hey that looks fun eh!” or you’re at home looking into activities to try out while you’re in town, then you may be looking for a basic surf lesson. Your surf lesson will cover all the basic fundamentals, safety and etiquette knowledge you need to know to get you paddling, popping up and riding waves. Your basic lesson will run 2.5 – 3 hours which includes travel time to the beach, fitting for the suits, land lesson (covering safety and theory), 1 – 1.5 hours in the water (plenty of time in the water, most people are exhausted after just half an hour) and a quick après refreshment where we can rest those tired arms, reflect on awesome bails and wind down after a sweet session of shredding waves and playing in the water! I have an array of lesson types to offer. If you would like a private, family (for children under 12) or basic group lesson the only difference is the rate! It’s important for me to keep student numbers low to insure the best instruction possible. A 5-1 student to instructor ratio is the maximum group number. Any higher and it is very difficult to give the one on one instruction needed for everyone in the group. The number of daily lessons and the lesson times will vary depending on my availability and on the time of year. Call or email for the most up to date info on the daily surf adventures.

Family or Private Group Lesson
$89.00 per person
This is a great way to keep numbers low and have a private experience with a small group or your family. Kids are great surfers! I have taught kids as young as 5 years old. Their light weight makes for an easy time popping up but also requires them to stay in more shallow water and need help carrying the board. This requires me to stay with the children full time throughout the session For these reasons, kids under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult during the lesson.
