We hope your questions are answered here.
AM I A BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, REFRESHER OR ADVANCED SURFER?
Beginner Surfer - Never surfed before or had surf lessons with a surf school.
Intermediate Surfer - Surfed before, can catch waves unassisted and stand up of the surfboard most of the time.
Refresher Surfer - Tried surfing before but have not had a surf lesson or been surfing for sometime (e.g 6 months or longer).
Advanced Surfer - Surf regularly, can catch unbroken waves, trim along the face of the wave both backhand and forehand and perform basic surfing maneuvers.
what days are lessons run?
Lesson are run 7 days a week. The specific time of the lesson will depend on which lesson product you have booked. Please note that we do require a minimum number of students per class for a lesson to proceed. In the event that you have booked a lesson and the minimum number has not been reached we will notify you that the class will not be running. You will be provided with a credit for the lesson which you can take on another day. If you are unable to attend on any other day we can provide a full refund.
do lessons get cancelled?
Whilst every endeavour will be made to hold the surf lessons, if the Go Surf head coach decides that the conditions are unsuitable/unsafe to proceed, we may at any time, including once the lesson has started, cancel the lesson for the safety of students. In the event that Go Surf cancel a lesson we will provide full or partial refund to the students depending on the stage at which the lesson was cancelled.
I have my own surfboard and wetsuit, can I use them in the lessons?
Yes you can most definitely use your own wetsuit. We have a wide range of full length wetsuits supplied by Volte Wetsuits which you are welcome to use also. Feel free to bring your own surfboard along, however if the Go Surf coaching staff deem the conditions unsafe for the particular surfboard we will encourage you to use one of our soft surfboards.
Is there free parking at the beach?
Yes there is a free public car park. Please note that on weekends during the summer period, the car park does get very busy so please allow ample time to find a space to arrive at the lesson on time.

I AM AFRAID OF THE OCEAN, ARE THE LESSONS SUITABLE FOR ME?
