Program

As with all of our surfing programs, the lessons cover a variety of aspects including beach and water safety, surfing technique, wave selection and individual improvements. We use a variety of learner to advanced boards and it is compulsory for all students to wear wetsuits and surfing specific helmets.

Accommodation

Students will stay in 8 person private self-contained chalets at Windsurfer Break Chalets.

St Hilda’s have exclusive use of the Chalets and no members of the public will be there during our stay.

Food

We provide all meals and snacks. Dinners are a communal event that takes place at the Chalet’s outside eating area and usually consists of a BBQ & Salads.

Students are provided with breakfast and lunch ingredients and are responsible within their chalet to self-manage these meals, including cleaning up.

Surfing

3 x 3 Hour Surfing lessons with Surfing WA qualified coaches.

Students are separated in to rough ability groups and allocated 1 or 2 surfing coaches per group. We have 5 surf coaches to a max of 24 students.

All equipment is provided and includes surfboards, wetsuits and ‘Gath’ surfing helmets.

Transport to and from Lancelin is in the St Hilda’s 22 seater Coaster bus, the St Hilda’s 12 seater people mover van and the Toyota Prado.

The Toyota Prado will remain on the beach during all surf lessons.
