We pride ourselves on small beginner and improver surf lessons with unbeatable coach to learner ratios. The average surf lesson ratio is 1 coach to 4 learners, with the maximum being 1:8. This guarantees each of our customers more 1-to-1 coaching. The 2-hour surf lessons will be staggered throughout the day, therefore minimising the number of people using the facilities and reducing the crowds in the surf.

Just returned from 3 beginner session back to back on 24th & 25th Nov 2020... as a beginner i was unsure what to expect but i have to say from booking, meeting the instructor on a pre arranged beach to getting on the waves, everything was incredibly well organised. All the gear was provided and i had a brilliant time, was taken through the whole process, including surf etiquette and reading the waves etc.. we achieved so much more than i ever hoped to and had a brilliant time. The weather and the waves were spectacular!! Finally a big thank you to Chris, my instructor.. what a top class guy, nothing was too much trouble, endlessly patient and a great teacher..Global Boarders Surf Co. highly recommended*****
