My teenagers are now hooked on surfing. It was the first time for all of us and our instructor, Jack, was fantastic! He broke down the skills, we practiced the skills on the beach, and then hit the waves! We had so much fun that we went back to rent equipment for the rest of the day and the next day. Great service, friendly staff, and they helped made it a memorable vacation for all of us! ~
Had Gavin and Adam as our excellent and positive instructors for a group of 9 first timers. They went over safety concerns, surfer etiquette, emergency procedures, as well as surfing steps and instructions and lots of energy. Would come back for these guys next time!!! ~
It was my first time surfing and I am so lucky to have Allan from Pacific Surf School as my teacher! It's not easy falling again and again, but his enthusiasm and support helped my to surf my first wave quickly! I also really appreciated learning the fundamentals of the type of waves we would surf and setting of the water/shore line to keep us safe. It was an all around positive learning environment and fun fun fun! Will be going again next year! ~
My wife and I took out first surf lesson ever yesterday and had a blast! Or instructor was Jill and she was amazing! The instruction was thorough, and informative. Safety was explained to a point where we would feel comfortable going alone next time. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to surf. Visited October 2016 ~
My Daughter and I tried cold water surfing (-2 degrees)! I was petrified of freezing - turn out it was a great workout and a ton of fun! Our Instructor Adam was fantastic - so patient and encouraging and his love of the sport and people really made him a pleasure to learn from. This company was very accommodating to our time-frame and we felt we got lots of individualised instruction! ~
Surf Lesson FAQ
SURF LESSON FAQ
Do I need to rent gear for my lesson?
No! Our lesson prices include all the gear you'll need for the duration of your lesson. This means we both transport and provide the surf board, wetsuit, and any accessories you may need. If you'd like to get back in the water after your lesson - we offer you a great deal on the first 24 hours of your rental! Just swing by the shop when you are ready to hit the water again and we can get you all set up.
I’m a bit nervous of water and can’t swim very well - can I still take a lesson?
Absolutely! We are passionate about creating the opportunity for you to begin a positive relationship with the ocean. Your safety is our first priority, and our highly qualified instructors have an amazing ability to make you feel comfortable in the water. We will be staying waist to chest deep in the water for all beginner lessons, and first and foremost chatting about safety on the beach before we get in the water.
What should I bring for my lesson?
To be prepared for your lesson, we ask that you make sure you bring the following:
- Bathing suit
- Sunscreen (if weather requires)
- Any personal medical items you may need within the 3 hour lesson time
We will be bringing all of the gear to the beach for you, and during the busy season we even bring the photographer! **Weather dependent.
What do I wear under my wetsuit?
We recommend you wear a bathing suit - with the least amount of material the better.
Can I wear my glasses or goggles on the lesson?
Unfortunately, no. Eyewear can act as a hazard in the water, with yourself and fellow surf-mates getting used to 9ft of surf board! We ask that you wear eye contacts if possible, or leave your eyewear in your car.
What beach will we be surfing at?
We choose the best beach for the day the morning of your lesson! Surf conditions can change very quickly, meaning you’ll get directions and a confirmed beach location day of your lesson.
Do you offer transportation to the beach?
We do not provide transportation of people to the beach. You will have to get yourself and your group down to the beach, but we WILL be bringing all surf gear to the beach for you.
Can I take a lesson in the winter?
Absolutely! We are open year round, 7 days a week. Give us a shout to chat available lesson times depending on when you are coming out.
What if it’s raining on the day of my lesson?
We surf, rain or shine!
