About Beginner Progressive (Bays Level 2)

This level is for those who have graduated from our ‘Beginner’ lesson by being able to consistently and independently paddle into white water waves and ride into shore on each attempt. The progressive lesson will use the rip current to paddle out halfway to the point and catch the edge of the green-faced wave (Requires comfort swimming in deep water). You will develop knowledge of surfing etiquette, paddling techniques, and board management, while you refine your leap to feet and be introduced to trim; the act of traversing along the wave face on your forehand and backhand.

Lesson Overview

  • Lessons are split into Adults (13 & over) and All Ages (6 & over).
  • 30-minutes introductory on-land lesson
  • 55-minute surfing lesson
  • 15-minute on-land recap and next steps

We recommend anyone under the age of 10 to have a complimentary ‘Parent / Guardian’ Ticket to help manage their board in the current and return to the line-up.

The Bays ‘Green face’ wave is located on the edge of the main rip, half way out to the point providing a great stepping stone from the bays white water wave to the point.
