Who is Considered a Beginner Surfer?

Beginner surfers are those that have never surfed before or have very limited experience and have never surfed a reef break! If you know how to surf or plan to bring your own equipment, you must book as a surfing guest. Beginner surfers are permitted to surf at Fish Fingers wave only initially, using the soft-top learning boards. Beginners are not permitted to surf any other waves unless the surf guide considers they have advanced to a level of competence that will allow them to surf these breaks in a safe manner. The opportunity to advance to a more challenging wave is at the sole discretion of our surf guides, for your safety.

What Waves can a Beginner Surfer Surf?

Beginners are permitted to surf at Fish Fingers only initially. If a beginner wishes to surf intermediate waves such as Mini Macas or Silabu Left, they must pay for a surf board rental, alternatively Soft top surfboards are only permitted to be used at Mini Macas at the discretion of Surf Guides. Our surf guide will accompany beginner surfers advancing to reef breaks for the first time.
