    Some of the top questions on surfing with us.

    Once you have decided what type of lesson you would like and when you are looking to surf you can book this over the phone, online or in person.

    The minimum age varies between 5 or 8 years old depending on what lesson you are booking.

    • The minimum age on standard group surfing lessons is 8 years old.
    • During the summer on our kids only group lessons we have groups for ages: 8-12 and 12-16.

    Once guarantee of surfing is you are going to get wet! Surfing is a sport you are able to do in most weather conditions. We always keep a close eye on the weather and surf forecast. If we ever needed to cancel due to adverse weather conditions then we would offer a refund, to reschedule the lesson or a gift voucher.

    Surfing exists for the pure enjoyment of it; the main aim of the game is to have a good time. It is a physical sport and requires a basic level of fitness, however, every movement can be broken down and changed as needed, that is what you coach is there to help with! When you are in the water everyone works at their own pace and can catch as many, or as few waves as they like.


    In your surfing lesson all equipment is always included. Once you have had a lesson with us you receive discounted hire rates, whether this is straight after your lesson or for the days following your lesson.
