Have you always wanted to learn to surf but don’t know where to start?

For your very own lesson scheduled to suit you, a private lesson package is perfect. Nothing beats personalized surf instruction with a professional coach. Perfect for those wanting to fast track their surfing, for those who learn best one-on-one, or those who want a lesson with just their significant other or buddy. You’ll receive everything that’s included in a group lesson, but in addition you’ll have your own personal surf instructor.

Because this is a private lesson you’ll be matched with a qualified surf coach with experience teaching your level and style of surfing. You might be an absolute beginner, had a 20 year break or just need to sharpen up a few skills.

All equipment hire is included. You’ll receive a quality surfboard and full length wetsuit, correctly fitted to you.

The class begins with a 20 minute beach theory, where you’ll learn ocean safety, paddling and pop-up.  Then you’ll be taken into the water, where your instructor will help you onto small waves and cheer you on.

Before you know it, you’ll be riding waves with a huge smile on your face!

Chuffed Comment

Many Chuffed Gift recipients have taken a surf lesson and been absolutely thrilled. We love it as a option in our gifts as it will leave you with a real sense of achievement – particularly if you have never surfed before. The Hibiscus team tells us that 90% of people stand up and ride waves in their first lesson.
