This lesson focuses on teaching the skills of surfing and how to handle yourself and your surfboard in the ocean.
We have a stack of fun on the way. You can do one lesson or 10 it is up to you as everyone is different. Our instructors are there to help you learn and provide advice on all questions related to surfing. As instructors we love our jobs. We hope that you will love surfing as much as we do.
Be warned it’s not as easy as the pros make it look. In fact, there’s an international comedian who states that it would be easier to eat handfuls of sand and drink a bucket of salt water!
