Helpful Information

It’s important to know that surfing relies entirely on swell so is weather dependant. 

Your surfing lesson revolves around your skill level. There is a local reef break where advanced surfers play on the tubes just meters away from the learner spot where beginners build confidence on strong white water surf and small green waves – ideal for those wanting to learn to stand, turn and hang five! 

Upgrades to your own private villa style room with outside shower is available in advance. Please enquire.

We advise arriving on Saturday or Sunday to acclimatize before the trip starts on Monday.

We can advise you on additional eco trips to add on to this one.

Learners will be taught the basic skills and depending on their confidence, progress quickly to standing.

If you are an intermediate/advanced surfer, there’s lots of choice up and down the coast. Please ask us for more details.

Details of your homestay, resort or lodge names and full itinerary will be sent to you once your booking is confirmed with 20% deposit.

Please bring your own reusable water bottle to help reduce plastic waste on the islands.
