Group surf lessons are shared surf lessons where multiple students learn together under the guidance of an instructor. They are a fun, social way to learn surfing, where you can enjoy the experience with other surf enthusiasts.

The number of people in a group surf lesson can vary, but typically, we try to maintain a small group size for effective learning. Our aim is to ensure quality instruction and sufficient attention to each student, so group sizes are usually no more than 5 students per instructor.

There are several benefits to taking a group surf lesson. Group lessons can be more affordable compared to private or semi-private lessons. Besides learning surfing skills, they also offer the chance to meet other surfing enthusiasts. Being in a group can also make learning fun as you cheer on each other’s progress, share tips, and learn from watching others.

A group surf lesson is where there are multiple students learning together, while a private surf lesson is a one-on-one session with an instructor. In a private lesson, you can enjoy undivided attention and instruction tailored to your own pace and ability, while group lessons offer a social atmosphere and the chance to learn with and from others.

Absolutely, group surf lessons are suitable for all skill levels. Each session will be adjusted to the overall skill level of the group with the goal of providing a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all participants.

The typical duration of a group surf lesson is 90 minutes. This provides ample time for land-based instruction, practice out on the water, and gaining plenty of wave riding experience.

Yes, all the necessary equipment, including a surfboard, wetsuit, UV Protection, Rash Guard, and Leash are included in the cost of a group surf lesson.

Our instructors take a multitude of safety measures during group surf lessons. All of our instructors are Red Cross certified in CPR and are trained in Ocean Rescue and First Aid. They also provide safety instructions at the beginning of each lesson, monitor weather and water conditions, and always stay within a safe proximity of the group when in the water.

Yes, our surf lessons are available for children. However, for their safety and best learning experience, we do have a minimum age requirement. Children participating in our surf lessons must be at least five years old and should also possess basic swimming skills. This ensures that they’re able to comfortably and safely enjoy their time in the water.

Our normal practice is to have a ratio of one instructor to a maximum of five students for group lessons. This policy allows us to maintain a high standard of instruction and safety for all participants.

In case of unsuitable weather or surf conditions, we will prioritize your safety above all else. You will then have the choice to either reschedule your lesson at your earliest convenience or receive a full refund. We are committed to ensuring our lessons are conducted under safe, enjoyable conditions for all participants.
