We provide specialised soft surfboards called G Boards, body boards and a choice of steamers (full length wetsuits) or spring suits (short arms and legs) according to the season. Hoods and boots are also available for the cooler months. Our surfboards are very stable and buoyant and ideal for beginners. They are extremely safe with no hard surfaces or sharp fins - great for boosting your confidence! We have boards in different sizes ranging from 7'6" to 9' to match your size and ability. No prior knowledge is necessary, although you should be confident in the water and able to swim at least fifty metres without assistance.

For the more advanced wanting to take their surfing to the next level why not have a private lesson with one of our senior coaches? Once you are consistently standing up in the white water we will introduce angled take-offs, bottom turns and trimming across the wave face. After that we'll teach you how to duck-dive your board, paddle with you out the back and put you in the right spot to catch green unbroken waves. You can use your own board or one of our soft boards, hybrid soft/hard board, fiberglass mini-mal, or even a short board, depending on your level of surfing and personal preference.

All you need to provide is your bathers and a towel.
