We create better surfers faster

At Chill Hut’s Surf School we provide tailored surf lessons for individuals and small groups.

Combining our experience with a structured methodology, we deliver specialist coaching that takes into account your surfing goals and the different motivations of people.

Our Style

We coach 1:1 or in small private groups with a maximum ratio of 1:4. This creates an environment that is tailored towards the learning needs of each individual. Ensuring fun and quick progression.

This low ratio is important in surfing in order to give a tailored experience. The ocean can be beautiful and exciting but also dynamic and potentially dangerous. With our coaching you get to closely interact with the instructors, where you have all the time and space you need.

This style of coaching allows you to learn faster, while gaining the skills and confidence to practise on your own, safely.

“Best birthday party ever. Got a group surf lesson for my daughters birthday. This was fantastic. Had a BBQ for lunch and surfing for entertainment. Chill Hut provided everything they needed along with a great teacher. I was so impressed. More than value for money. Kids had a great time and learnt a lot. Love that safety was a priority. Now they all want to take up surfing as they had so much fun. Great job we will be back.”
