Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do on the day?
Bring sunscreen, water, towel... Arrive 30 minutes before your lesson.
Our aim is to get you up and riding on your first lesson. However, everyone learns at their own pace, so it’s impossible to provide any guarantees.
Typically most people take only 1 lesson to get up on 2 ski’s. Wakeboarders and Wakesurfers also tend to get out the water on their first lesson.
Foiling is more complex, and very dependant on what other skills you possess (Kitesurfing, Wakeboarding, etc). But we still aim to get you up and riding on your initial lesson. For this reason these sessions are usually a little longer. We have a variety of foils, boards and wakesurfers to assist and guide you, no matter what your experience.
Intermediate and Advanced Lessons. Why is each session 15 minutes?
We typically run 2 x 15 minute sessions in a intermediate or advanced class. This may sound short, and many people have questioned this. You may even ski for longer while doing your normal recreational ski, but trust us - this session will not be your normal session. Our aim is to push you to another level. 15 minutes on the water, is 15 minutes pushing yourself to another level. You will be tired; if you are a beginner, or haven't skied for a while, you will be sore the next day.
How old do you need to be to take lessons for us?
First thing. Your never too old!! Then, as long as your child can swim, we can teach. We've taught people as young as 5 to ski.
What if the weather is bad on the day?
We will reschedule your lesson if the weather is bad on the day.

You will get a full refund of any monies paid, provided you cancel 24 hours before your lesson is due. If you cancel within the 24 hr period your card may be charged a cancellation fee. If you "no show" to your appointment you will be charged the full amount.
