Mums and Dads there is no age limit when learning how to surf. If you wish to spend some time with the kids then take a look at the Family Fun Camp that runs during the summer time or the Open Lesson which is more instructor led and aimed at the slightly older kids and teens. Or if you wish to take some time out for yourself then check out the Adults Only lessons where head space is guaranteed!!
Active retired … looking to entertain or mind the grandchildren - then family fun is the surf lesson for you. Check out our walks and guided tours for other activities that might interest you.
Qualifications, Safety & How to Book
All our Surfing Instructors are qualified by the relevant governing bodies and hold Beach Lifeguard qualifications.We operate a ratio of 8 students to 1 instructor but where children's surfing lessons are concerned we have a tendency to add extra helpers to the surf lesson (trainee surfing instructors, Oceanics future instructors!) accompanying senior surfing instructors into the water.Children are supervised both in and out of the water at all times.
All surfing lessons are held in waist depth water so you do not have to be a very strong swimmer.We will work with you at whatever depth you wish to start off at, sometimes with groups it can be getting you used to floating in a wetsuit before you decide to start riding waves.Those that are nervous, have no fear, we will give you all the confidence and help you need to have a good time.
All our Surfing Instructors pride themselves on being people friendly and have endless patience when teaching people about the moving wave and how to feel comfortable and confident when riding it.To book simply just email or call us requesting which dates you wish to book.For surfing lessons or camps a contact phone number is all that's required.
Checking in and payment is done 10 minutes before surfing lesson / camp times.You will be required to fill in a registration form which you can request to be sent to you in advance if you so wish.
For Groups pre-payment is necessary with a deposit required to secure your date.
For large groups a booking form will be sent and will need to be returned with deposit to secure dates.
Payment can be made by cash or cheque made out to Oceanics Surf School.
Our surfing lessons can also be booked online.
