What we aim to teach you

We reckon every new surfer would benefit in taking at least 3x 2hr lessons to get a basic understanding of surfing and a few clues as to how to go on to develop the skills you learn. With our Multipass options we aim to help you progress your surfing even further, we think the more coaching we give you the faster you will progress!
