Come & see us for the right advise, we rent & sell beginner to Advanced surfboards.

Please meet our friendly staff and check in 15 minutes prior to your lesson commencing, at our surf school van, located in the car park, out the front of the Swell cafe. 

We conduct beginner private lessons in waist deep water, learning how to catch white water waves first, then steadily progressing to our 3-step stand up technique. There is so much more to surfing than just standing up on a surfboard. Learning to understand & read the ocean is very much a major factor in learning how to surf when building up self-confidence. So come & have a private lesson with us, and we will get you started. All equipment is provided by us.
