We've tried it all,

We KNOW what works:

Your own rescue boat

We've found that having your own rescue boat accelerates your learning curve exponentially.

We give you confidence with constant assistance and allow you to get long rides in a sigle direction without having to worry about going too far from the beach.

2-Way radio communication

With constant real-time instruction when it’s most crucial.

Compare this to shouting at you from the beach and using hand signals. You quickly realize THAT is not a lesson.

Progression Videos

We record your sessions so you can backtrack what you've learned and show-off your skills.

We don’t chase you out of the water

We know how annoying it can be when you're promised one thing and the school doesn't deliver. That's why we give more than promised.

Each lesson is 2.5hrs on the water, but you’ll be out for about 3.5hrs to account for setup and pack-up times.

Water & Beverages

We include beverages for you to enjoy and to get the salt out of your mouth after a rewarding session.
