(and a little instruction too!).

Two-hour sessions: Our average lesson is about two hours long, this allows for some talk time and a land lesson, before getting into the water and catching some waves. Most people will be fully satisfied (and exhausted) after their surf session.  The lessons are held close to shore in a sheltered bay. The waves break away from shore over a gently sloping reef. This makes the waves predictable and relatively gentle. (These locations do not have the shore-break waves which are not recommended for beginner surfing).

The students will not need to paddle too far from shore to get their rides. Parents and spectators can stay on shore, an can get some great photos of the action. (Non-surfers should not enter the water at the surfing location.)
