Everything included in the price

All our surf prices include entry to The Wave and everything you need, such as wetsuit, boots and the perfect surfboard for your session.

We always recommend surfing with a lesson if you are a beginner or a surfer who hasn’t visited The Wave before.

In our beginner lessons you’ll learn how to surf in a fun, supportive environment and once you’re in the water, we’ll be with you all the way as you catch your first waves. We’ll coach you to improve your technique and boost your confidence so you can start catching bigger waves.

We also offer surf sessions without lessons for advanced surfers who are already confident on a board and just want to catch some waves.
