Whitewater |Outback

We know that the transition from white water surfing to green wave surfing out back can be a big jump and it brings with it a whole new skill set and mindset. This is for those who are on the line between white water and green wave surfing.

Book the beginner white water sessions but request intermediate instruction. We’ll help get your skills up to standard for the transition to green wave surfing. We will teach you how to turtle roll, safety out back, how to paddle for unbroken waves, fine tune your pop up, how line ups work and how to execute an angled take off.

Paddle outback sessions are available on request
