Our intermediate and advanced coaching is open to all, including both recreational and competitive surfers, looking to improve their surfing technique. We offer a variety of courses from intensive 1/2 day sessions, through to weeklong courses.

We have a large selection of surf boards available to give our clients an opportunity to try different equipment suited to their level and the surf conditions.
