Do I need to bring my own wetsuit and board?

No, we supply all the equipment for you including surf boards, wetsuits, rash vests, surf wax and sunscreen. If you prefer to bring your own wetsuit you can do so. If you decide that you would like to purchase your own equipment, the surf academy staff can assist in helping you choose the most appropriate surf equipment and surf boards from local shapers and surf shops.

Do you have flexible booking options?

Yes, the date can be changed for free up to 14 days before travel.

I am not very fit, will I still be able to join?

You will become very fit by the end of your Academy package! It’s a good idea to start some swim training if you can before the Academy, but if you don’t get around to it we will whip you into shape in no time!

    I did the 2-month program and I didn’t want to leave. I really improved my surfing and that made me love it more. the academy group feels like a little family and the vibe is really laid back. I made some really good friends and I definitely will be back.
