Once we see a good day for surf, we send out a notification to our waiting list with 2-4 days notice. Maximum participants are 14 and minimum 8. Ideally, we go out when the weather- and surf-forecast are suitable for beginners. That is winds, wave height/force as well as the tides.
To go on the waiting list you´ll have to book any day here on activity page and tell us what days will suit you best (in "note" section during the booking).
We try and go out on weekends.
We do not surf if the waves are too small or too big as it might be dangerous or no fun. We know this within three days prior to the surf school lesson.
You can rent a GoPro camera from us.
