Keep hold of the equipment, kick back on the beach and practice your skills as much, or as little, as you like for the rest of the day. You'll also have access to our changing rooms and facilities for the full day.


Book our Surf Lesson & then add a Half-Day Hire package, you'll get everything you need for an informative-yet-flexible day of surf tuition and solo experience.
