The small things


These are some of the questions that we get asked regularly before a surf.
We offer lessons to students ages 6+ however we require that all students are able to swim confidently in the ocean by themselves and that students ages 6-7 book a private lesson with us as they generally require more hands-on attention in the water.
Most definitely. We require that all students are capable of swimming confidently in the ocean. Your instructor will be by your side to guide you throughout your lesson, however, you should not have to rely on them to keep them afloat. If you don’t know how to swim and you are keen to learn how to surf we recommend taking a few swimming lessons to learn and gain confidence in the water prior to booking with us.
All the surf equipment required such as a rash vest/ wetsuit and surfboard is provided as well as a trained surf instructor for the duration of your lesson. All you need to bring along is your swimming costume, towel, and some sunblock.
This is entirely up to the student as everyone’s skills and abilities are different. We recommend committing to at least four lessons with us to ensure that you have the basics down before attempting to try surf out at backline.
Don’t take our word for it
