5 Day Course

5 Days of pure surf progression, Its exhausting but amazing. We will push you till you feel that spaghetti arms are real.

8 to 10 Surf Sessions

We have organised the dates of these courses around small (neap) tides so we can surf without the pressure of a tide getting too high or too low.

We surf for as long as the group lasts or conditions allow we aren't limited by any time restraints. 

We Are Mobile

We pick the best surf spots for the day within our permissions. So we will never be bound to surf unfriendly conditions. (unless the conditions are terrible everywhere we will then switch the surf for something more beneficial)
