About Kids

The group lessons are a mixed class of adults and kids so you can surf with your kids! All kids are provided with the right surfboard and wetsuit to get them having the most fun and learning quicker.

Important: For less experienced kids or kids younger than 11 we require the parent to supervise them at knee height in the water at all times during the class.

"I highly recommend taking lessons with this crew whether you're a complete beginner or wanting to improve technique and gain more confidence. Stuart and Lisa are great instructors, i have taken lessons in many places around the world and these guys are top of my list!"

Amanda Hale (Local Surfer)

“Stuart and Lisa ran the perfect surfing lessons for our Yr 13 boys. They came away buzzing and wanted to get straight back in the water for another lesson. I would highly recommend Wellington Surf Lessons to any schools wanting to have surfing as part of a trip or EOTC programme in Castlepoint. They were easy to deal with, organised and were great with our boys. Thanks very much!! “.
