We then head down to the beach for you to have a practice of the movements previously demonstrated.
When we do get into the water, you should have a really good understanding of what you need to do. And then we hit the water and the real fun begins!! You will be helped and pushed onto as many waves as you would like by your surf instructor who is with you the entire time in the water, to help you onto waves, give feedback and assist you to have a really enjoyable and successful time surfing!
