HOW LONG ARE LESSONS?All lessons are allocated a two hour time slot.
WHERE DO YOU MEET FOR LESSONS?We meet in Hanover car park. We have a big white van so you can’t miss us! Meet us there 10 minutes before your lesson so we can get some paperwork all filled out and then we can get you suited and equipped ready for surfing!
WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS NO WAVES/BAD WEATHER?We keep a constant eye on the surf forecast and aim to anticipate ‘flat days’ in advance. We will always attempt to move your activity date or provide a paddleboard session in replace of any cancelled surfing lesson.
ARE WET SUITS AND SURFBOARDS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?Yes, all the equipment you need is provided as part of the lesson prices.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?All you need to bring with you is your swimming costume to go underneath the wetsuit that we provide, and a towel to get dry with at the end as well as some neoprene beach shoes.
WHAT ARE THE FACILITIES LIKE?There is an ice cream van for refreshments, (still in the car park) and there are public toilets.
I HAVE MEDICATION WITH ME, WHERE CAN I PUT THEM WHILST I’M HAVING MY LESSON?When we go down to the beach for every lesson, we take with us a 'rescue bag'. Inside this bag we keep a few emergency first aid essentials and spares for boards. If you have medication that needs to be kept close by then it can be kept in this bag.
