Our instructors are not only fanatical surfers, but our passion for surfing means that we all take great pleasure in succeeding in our efforts to get you, the student up and riding and discovering the joys of harnessing some of nature’s energy and the ensuing magic carpet ride as you glide down the open face and onto the natural high that keeps us coming back for more.
