Educational SURF school trips


“Been here 4 years running always using this company. The guys Jake and Damon are amazing such thorough, caring and hilarious instructors. Always can rely on having a safe lesson and progressing to learning new things. Great place to get ready with hot showers for the end. All equipment provided. Each year we have fun and they make us want to come for the whole year surfing. Thanks so much for having us and welcoming our abilities. We will be back next year for more fun!!”
