Our intermediate sessions

Intermediate wave

Our intermediate waves will take you beyond the white water of the beginner bay and help you to surf the gentle green faces of the reef. These will allow you to travel a greater distance, faster and start to introduce you to turns.These waves have more strength and a slightly steeper take off so that you can start to use the rails of your surfboard and turn using your body weight and the fins on your board. The intermediate waves are designed to be friendly yet progressive. You will start to develop paddle strength and much greater board control as you paddle back to the take off area.

Ideal for:

  • Surfers who want to progress beyond riding white water waves.
  • Those who want to learn to turn on waves.
  • Surfers who have caught many beginner waves and are looking for the next challenge.
  • Those who can stand up on most waves they catch in the white water.

Our goals for you:

  • Catch a green unbroken wave alone.
  • Learn to fall safely and to deal with the board in different situations
  • Be able to paddle back to the take-off point, during or between sets
  • Start practising the paddle technique and paddle against a gentle current
  • Practice to turn while sitting on the board
  • Practice to finish waves well and safely

Suitable for:

All ages from 10 years. There are varying water depths and surfers may be out of their depth when paddling back to the take off.
