In the pricing section of each tour, you will be able to see the special rates offered for non-surfers, typically labeled as "Accommodation Only". If the price is not listed, please feel free to contact us through our inquiry form and we will let you know if it is possible to arrange a discounted package for the non-surfer(s) in your group.

How far in advance do I need to book or reserve a trip?

We suggest that you book your trip at least 90 days in advance so that there is a greater probability that there is space on our trips and you have ample time to prepare for your trip. We do however, accept bookings less than 90 days in advance. If you're booking your trip less than 15 days in advance, please contact us prior to submitting your booking.

Do I need to know how to swim in order to be able to surf?

Our instructors understand that beginners need to learn to surf in a safe and unthreatening environment. Beginner lessons typically take place close to shore in waist to chest deep water where you are able to stand up and there is no need to tread water. In addition, your surfboard is attached to your ankle and acts as a floatation device. Your surf instructors are also there to rescue you from any dangerous situations as well. If you are unable to swim, simply let the instructors know in advance and they will be more than happy to accommodate your needs.

How much free time will I have?

Each trip has a different daily schedule but you can plan on surfing a somewhere between 2-4 hours per day. Ultimately your daily schedule is up to you and you will have the freedom to have as much free time as you would like. So if you are feeling fatigued from surfing every day, you may opt to take a day off and just relax on the beach or explore your surroundings. Some of our locations offer optional activities such as yoga classes, language lessons and excursions which you may partake in as well.
