There’s a lot to take in when you hit the waves for the first time. Our beginner course will help you to find your feet and develop your confidence. You will have a qualified and highly skilled instructor with you throughout, coaching both in and out of the water. Each lesson has 30 minutes on land followed by one hour in the water, with a break so you can refuel in our restaurant.

Your instructor will be by your side the whole time to ensure you get your waves for the ultimate ride.

The course takes three hours in total, split over two sessions (Levels 3 and 4). It is ideal for anyone who is working up to tackling the advanced wave for the first time.



This is a great package if you are a competent surfer, but feel like you have hit a performance plateau.


The advanced development day consists of two surfing sessions with video analysis as well as a land simulation session.


Video analysis is the best way to accurately assess your movement and show you the best way to improve. Your highly skilled surf instructor will film your first hour on the waves and then bring you back to the Surf Academy to review the footage.


Based on the video analysis, your instructor will identify the main areas for development. The second part of your day will use SmoothStar (specialised skateboards used for surf training – also sold in our shop and online store) to recreate movements on land. This will help you to master the correct technique and improve your muscle memory.


By the time you hit the waves for your final surfing session, you should see a marked improvement in performance.

10.30 – Initial briefing and assessment in the Surf Academy
