Before you start your program it is important for you to identify what level surfer you are unfortunately its not as simple as how many lessons you have previously
done. Surfing is such and individual sport and everyone progresses at a different rate.  You may have been taking lessons with a mate,
done a beginner class with another surf school or never tried before, but until we get you in the water we cant really tell- this will give you a guide to see if you are ready for the 3 day program

If you want to sign up  for one of our programs we would assume that you have at least "had a go"  and know that you want to commit. You may have participated in a beginner surf experience with us or somewhere else, or you may have had a couple of lessons with a mate or family member.

So on the first day of the program we would expect  you can at least do the following :

  • Minimum age 6 years Maximum 12
  • Stand on a board using the 4 or 2 step method unassisted by the instructor
  • Ride a broken wave in the white wash ( even just for a few seconds) unassisted by the instructor
  • Be able to identify the parts of the surf board
  • Basic surf safety
  • Recognize hazards in the surf such as rips
  • Be able to swim at least 25 meters in the surf and tread water 

If you are not able to tick all the boxes from the list above we would suggest you start with a beginner surf experience where these things are covered.


Each day of the 3 lesson program will cover some theory on the beach and of course lots of time in the water. By the end of each lesson you will have to reached certain levels so that you can progress to the next level.
