Challenging, Exciting and Fun

Our 3 hour Surf Ski course is designed to give you the fundamental skills necessary to start surf ski paddling and develop efficient stroke technique. Learn and improve your paddling skills on our fleet of Epic Surf Skis - V5, V7, V8, V8 Pro, V9 and V10 Sport.

Courses are often described as challenging, exciting and heaps of fun! Experienced paddlers are often the ones that gain the most from refining and revising their current skills. Most importantly, inexperienced paddlers will leave with a completely new skill set that will launch them into one of the fastest growing sports in the world.

Paddling is a low impact - low injury watersport that provides a full body workout.
