The Learn to Surf Ski & Ocean Kayak Course

  • 3 hour course held on a Sunday, 9am to 12 noon
  • Held at our Training & Hire Centre at 37 Jetty Road, Sandringham
  • Combination of on and off-water sessions

Limited dates scheduled but you can take the course by Private Tuition (personalised tuition for just you or you and a friend) or get your own group of 4 to 6 together and we will schedule a class for you - midweek or some weekends possible. Email us if you would like to organise a private class.
