My daughter and grandson attended this lesson

My daughter and grandson attended this lesson. They said that they teach you everything you need to know to get started. If you aren't getting they will teach you again step by step and they were very patient and encouraging. It was a fantastic experience.

This was an amazing experience

This was an amazing experience. Despite a windy day I learnt to stand up on a board. The staff were great and friendly but most of all patient. They communicated with me well in advance to work out the logistics of the day. There were 8 people in the group which was good as everyone was learning and no one needed to be self conscience. It gave me the confidence to continue to develop my skills on my own.

Trainers were very friendly and they were clear in their explanations

Trainers were very friendly and they were clear in their explanations. Overall a fun and good experience. It was exhilarating as we take on the crashing waves at the main beach. However, it would have been. better if trainers gave us more assistance. An enriching activity for the adventurous ones!
