Experience has shown us that children-only groups aren’t very productive in terms of progression, which is why we combine adults and children.
We have found that the most productive and enjoyable groups are those where adults and children are taught together and can feed off each other’s excitement and energy.
More often than not, the children in our mixed groups show the adults how to let go and be in the moment, how to utilize their natural ability, how to keep calm, and most importantly, how to have fun. Conversely, adults reinforce important educational and safety details for the kids.
As with our other lessons, we keep our children’s surf groups small, with a maximum of eight surfers to an instructor, adhering to the ISA recommendation.
Our top priority is to create a completely safe, fun, and educational environment where learning is easy.
Get them off to a great start.
Our experienced instructors have the necessary patience and professionalism to teach young surfers the necessary skills. They will consistently provide valuable feedback and instruction in order to develop their surfing ability.
When trying to learn on their own, children make the same mistakes time. And time again, which can often be frustrating. This can affect their love for the sport as this usually hinders progress, which can be very annoying. Our instructors will help to stop bad habits before they can’t be unlearnt.
As we know, the sea can be very dangerous if you don’t know how to navigate it. All of our instructors are certified by the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) and can prepare children with the knowledge. And immediate safety to have an exhilarating surf session in the water.
Most of our young surfers are able to stand up and surf a wave within the first couple of hours!

Kids Surf Lessons – Instructors

Kids Surf Lessons – Equipment
Surfboards: We use child-sized soft surfboards with soft fins for all our beginner children’s lessons to stop any unnecessary injuries. To stop the board pulling you around in the waves and to make sure it doesn’t crash into you when falling off, we use extra-long leashes.
Wetsuits: wetsuits are a must when surfing. Our premium wetsuits from Quicksilver, Roxy, and Xcel will protect you from the sun, sea, and your board.
Top tip: The weather is beautiful year-round with strong sun and high temperatures. As you would when sunbathing, we recommend using a high-factor sunscreen to protect your exposed skin. Luckily, we always have some available in our surf shop should you forget yours.
