What you'll do

Have you ever wanted to give Surfing a go but not sure about what to do, or where to go to make it a safe and enjoyable experience? Too Easy! Book your Private lesson with me today!

Surf lessons are conducted from 7:30am in the morning (summer) and 9:30am (winter) before the sea breeze comes in. Once we meet up on the lawned area, you will undergo a safety briefing on your time at the beach, the equipment used and issue your wetsuits. Once this is complete, we make our way to the beach to learn about the conditions of the day, identifying hazards, rips, currents, other water craft, swell size, conditions, wind direction, the surfers role in the environment and perform a brief warm up and stretch.

Once we have a sound understanding of where we will be surfing we will then proceed onto the sand and go through the fundamentals and four steps of how to effectively control and stand-up on a surfboard . Then it's time to hit the water and chase some white wash into the shoreline to gauge your skill levels and assist in developing your technique to get you in control and standing up riding a wave!

Depending on how you are progressing or your level of experience and confidence in the water, you may be invited to venture onto some green waves, however you will always be able to remain within your own comfort level and surfing ability.

This was my first time surfing so I was a bit nervous, the water was a bit rough but with Aaron’s guidance I was able to stand up on the board in my first session. Really amazing guidance, I felt very safe, very professional and experienced. I highly recommend this experience.

Aaron is a first class surf instructor! The private lesson was brilliant for learning and improving the technique. Thank you so much Aaron, for all your very helpful advices!

Had no previous surfing experience and had no idea what to expect. Aaron helped me feel comfortable right from the start and walked me through at a good pace. I never quite got to standing, largely because the ocean that day was "flat as a pancake" but still had a great sense of accomplishment and enjoyment. Aaron was open to answering any questions and genuinely wanted me to have a great time... even to the point of going 30min overtime at no cost to try and get me some waves! After our lesson he offered me some herbal tea from a thermos and some mini homegrown apples. Such a lovely personal touch. So grateful I got to enjoy the ocean like this and hope to be back!

More tips

What to bring

Please bring a hat, Sunscreen, plenty of water and a towel. On really hot days the sand on the beach can be too hot to walk in bare feet so please bring some thongs/flip flops/jandals to make your way to & from the beach. Please remove all jewellery prior

On cooler days please bring something warm to wear like a jumper or a hoody.
