How old does my Child have to be to attend the Kids Only Surf Lessons? 

We accept children aged 6 - 12 years. For insurance purposes we cannot accommodate children under 6 years of age. Children aged over 12 years of age will need to participate in our O'Neill Group Lessons, which are more suitable for their learning and ability level. We have a minimum size wetsuit for our kids only surf school so if you child is a particularly small 6 year old please tell a member of staff when booking. We reserve the right to refuse booking of any child who we believe to be under 6 years of age.

Does my child need to be able to swim? 

We require all of our students to have a basic swimming ability. If you child is a non swimmer or not confident in the water then please discuss this with a member of staff BEFORE booking your surfing course commences.

Does my child need to wear a lifejacket?: 

Lifejackets are not necessary for our water based activities. Children are provided with a wetsuit and surfboard (both of which act as flotation aids). All our children's lessons are conducted in under waist deep water with coaches who are qualified beach lifeguards and surf lifesavers.

Can we leave the children with you for the day? 

A Parent/Guardian MUST remain within the beach vicinity at all times during your child's surf lesson. We ask that you are available help them into their wetsuits, and are available 10 minutes before the end of the lesson to help your child change. Due to child protection laws, staff are unable to help your child with this.
