PHOTOGRAPHY

If it isn’t on your Instagram it didn’t happen, right? For safety reasons, we cannot allow you to carry your own camera while you are taking lessons.

To make sure you have the best memories of your experience, we have a team of professional surf photographers capturing your surf lesson from the ground, in the air and in the water! They will follow you through the whole class: from the moment you get into your wetsuits, do your warm up on the beach, and of course catch your first waves!

We’ll have your shots ready to view back at the surf school by the time you’re dry. All packages will include 20+ high res photos of your lesson, shot from different angles and will be sent to your email.

Book your photoshoot in advance to get better rates. Ask one of our staff members for pricing.

Our team works for the top surf magazines and international media. Just ride the waves and we’ll make you look like a star!
