Useful information for everyone that want to attend for a lesson
When you are ready to learn surfing, book your first lesson with us. – Lessons are 2 hours in small groups. – You can book our school sessions regardless if you are new to surfing or if you have already started learning. We will adapt the class to your level. The lesson takes place on the beach, just bring your bikini/surfshorts and sunglasses. If you have a wetsuit, you should bring it with you. Otherwise we will provide you with one.
From our experience, approximately 6 to 8 hours of lessons are needed to reach a level where you can surf independently and ride with safety. Each student progress is always individual and may be both faster or slower. The most important is to not skip any steps along the way.
We have boards of different sizes and shapes so we can adapt them to your progression rhythm and to the existing conditions. We have soft top foam boards for beginners, Mini Malibus, short boards.
On our lessons you will be equipped with a nice and confortable 3mm wetsuit so you can enjoy your lesson. You have the choice of a full size wetsuit or a shorty.

If you feel more confident in using a life-vest, those are available too. We have developed our own life-vests perfectly adapted to our school needs.

So you’re wondering, why should you shell out the money for lessons?
The most important reason is so you don’t hurt yourself or others. You will also save yourself time and money by learning from qualified instructors who have developed instructional programs that will guarantee a positive learning experience. The following list gives more reasons why you should take lessons:
1.Save Money. You will save more money by taking a lesson than you will trying to learn on your own. Why trash your new equipment when you can take a few lessons and use the school’s boards.
2.Knock the learning curve in half. Instructors will show students safe shortcuts and will get riders up to speed more efficiently.
