Kids Surf

We offer lessons for all ages of kids, as long as they are comfortable being in the ocean. A lesson is two hours long and we provide wetsuits and surfboards that are suited for kids. Lessons are done in waist deep water with the instructor staying next to the kids at all times. The lesson consists of beach work and water practice.

Beginner Surf

Our lessons are two hours long and the instructor surfer ratio is 8:1. We use special soft top learn to surf boards and full length wetusuits. Clients wear bright colored ID vests over their wetsuits for extra safety and visibility. A learn to surf lesson is done in various stages that includes beach work and practice followed by learning in waist deep water. A solid basic foundation is taught.

Intermediate Surf

For a 2 hour intermediate lessons, a instructor paddles out into a gentle intermediate break with the clients. On the beach paddling out routes as well as exit routes will be identified and also the main wave that will be surfed. The instructor will direct the client to the best takeoff zone in the water and after every ride give feedback on the wave ridden. Equipment can be provided. Ratio 4:1

Advanced Surf

A 2 hour advanced lesson can either be done with an instructor in the water with the client, giving feedback after every ride or by way of video. This will be where the client is videoed from the beach and after a certain amount of rides the footage is then used to identify areas where the client can improve. Video analyses sessions can also be arranged. Etienne does the advanced coaching.

Private Surf

Private lessons can be arranged for all levels of surfing.

Surf Guide

Client gets collected from their accommodation by the surf guide and they go and surf at the best surf break on the day according to clients surfing ability. The guide surfs with the client, pointing out best entry and exit routes as well as best take off zones and set waves. Surf Guiding can either be half day or full day. Equipment can be arranged.
