Kids Only Lessons
Introduction to Surfing:We encourage children from six years of age and up to learn to surf. Besides our open surf lesson there are many camps to choose from which are heavily discounted and are a great introduction to the sport of surfing and are aimed at different age groups and abilities.
Developing Surfers:For those children that wish to develop their surfing abilities and techniques and progress at the sport, then during the Autumn, Winter, Spring the Saturday Morning Club, Friday After School Club or an Open Surf Lesson would be the best options, while in summer the Teen Zone, Open Surf Lesson or Family Fun would be the ideal way to proceed. We also run an Easter Certificate Course for 9 years and up.
We don't give one-on-one surf lessons to children but you can book a small group lesson or why not book a course if you are over 16yrs and have parental consent. Remember you can always organize your birthday party as a great way to get you and your friends surfing together!
Extremely popular with the older children our Surfing Birthday Party Confirmation Celebration, Teenage pre-sleep over parties etc…
Easter Camp and Summer Camp surfing courses also available for children.
Also take a look at our Corporate Kids section or our Family Fun for times you can spend with your parents!!!
Or if you think your teacher might be interested why not suggest a school tour to Oceanics … check out our Educational section for info. Courses with Certificate of completion available for youth groups and schools.
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.
