Please book at the bottom of this page selecting age group and experience, select how many surfers, their details, add to cart and checkout! Its very easy!

If having difficulty deciding if intermediate or beginner then only choose intermediate if your child has either had several lessons before or has been surfing 2+ years. Intermediate surfers  can or are very close to catching unbroken green waves on their own. Or select intermediate if your child already has attended the Wave Warriors ‘Junior Surfers’ After School Surfing program.

Important: 95% of the time our surf events happen without fail!
It is possible that the weather/sea conditions may be terrible in which case we will reschedule to the following day Sunday 24th September or the following weekend Saturday 30th Sep. Lets pray to the wave gods!
