Amazing beginners surf lesson with Paddy, was our absolute first time on a surf board ever but Paddy was super patient and explained everything to us novices! Had loads of fun and learnt a bunch as well, he even had us standing up on waves by the end. Highly highly recommend and would definitely do it again 😀

My two daughters (10 & 14) and I took the beginners private lessons for families for 4 consecutive days and, all in all, it was excellent. The two instructors we had (Ray and Paddy) were extremely knowledgeable, nice and patient and took the utmost care in making sure that the two girls felt safe, comfortable and had fun. Considering we were all starting from 0, we all made considerable progress over the 4 days, and even rode some (small :-)) waves on our first day. All in all, I'd wholeheartedly recommend Hibiscus Surf School to anyone wanting to begin to surf the waves
