Day 1 is the basics. The lesson starts on the beach where you learn all about:

  • Equipment usage and care

  • Ocean safety

  • Surf etiquette

  • Proper surfing technique

  • Environment

Following the theory, we head out to waist deep water where you’ll enjoy catching tons of whitewater waves and learn from the tips our experienced instructors have to share.

*Prerequisites – students must have basic swimming skills and be 12 years or older (over 5 ft and 100 lbs).


Day 2 is a continuation of Day 1, picking up where we left off. An introduction to more advanced theory and technique. Moving towards our ultimate goal as surfers, riding the “green” wave. You’ll learn about:

  • How winds, tides and swells affect our surf and how to decide what beach to surf at

  • How to paddle out to the unbroken waves

  • The theory of choosing, catching and riding the green wave

  • How to begin to maneuver and turn

There may be an opportunity to paddle ‘out back’ and attempt to catch green waves if the conditions allow and if all the students are feeling comfortable and capable.

*Prerequisites – students must have decent swimming skills, be 12 years or older (+5 ft and 100 lbs) and have taken either a Day 1 or Private lesson from us recently. Please contact us to book a Day 2.

Large Group Rates

There’s nothing better than getting together to try something new, exciting and challenging. From school groups to corporate retreats, ESL groups to a girl’s weekend getaway, the inspiring sport of surfing offers a great excuse to get outside and live in the moment in an exciting – and safe – environment. It can also help to improve confidence, encouraging a healthier lifestyle, and it’s a great opportunity for non academic achievers to achieve something special.

We offer group rates on our regular group lessons starting from 6 or more people and getting progressively better as the group gets bigger. We have worked with many groups ranging from larger families to corporate retreats, along with Schools Districts across Canada. We also regularly work with Girl Guides Canada and ESL groups.


**Group rates are not offered on long weekends or during July and August.
