    During November and March the weather is fairly consistent and we do normally have sea breezes every afternoon. If there is heavy rain, the lesson will need to be rescheduled and we will call you to arrange another mutually agreeable time.

    Dress Code

    Please make sure you come in your bathers or boardies and bring a towel and wetsuit or rashy if you do feel the cold (although a t-shirt will suffice). Please ensure that you are wearing sunscreen during the lesson.
