Beginner Bodyboarding Without a Lesson
Our beginner bodyboarding sessions are located in the bay, which is the area nearest the shore.
These sessions are a great way to access the water and build confidence on a bodyboard while developing the basic, fundamental skills.
The consistent waves and controlled environment, exclusively for bodyboarders, will allow you to catch plenty of waves, learning how to position yourself in the water, catch a wave, and ride it into the shore in the correct position.
There is no dry side session, but the briefing from the host will guide you in the basics and offer tips and advice throughout the session.
This will prepare you to progress onto our next exclusive bodyboarding experience, Improver Bodyboarding.
