Children Surfing Rates / Restrictions

Please enquire with number of children, ages and surfer/non-surfer information to have a tailored quote.

6 - 11 year olds have to be booked for special kids lessons. They normally run in the afternoons for 2/3 hours and are accompanied by a nanny service. Parents have to be there to drop off and pick up there children, which means they won't be able to join our regular surf days because the timings will clash. Parents can join their children (but not surf) if they pay for a beach transfer for 20€ (only if space available). 1 day: 45€ 3 days: 130€ 5 days: 195€.

12 - 15 year olds can join regular lesson but must be accompanied by a paying adult (over 18) who is either on a beach transfer (25 Euros) or in the lesson too. Prices are the same as adult surf lessons.

Over 16s can join regular group lessons.

Another option for families who all want to surf together is to book a private lesson. Enquire for rates.

Reviews of Tiny Whale Surf Tipis

Being my first surfing experience, The Tiny Whale Surf Lodge and Jah Shaka team were exceptional, the place has got character, giving it a homey and relaxing atmosphere. Yoga with Miri was great and I didn't miss a lesson, she s such an inspiration. A dream come true - I went there for only 1 goal - to learn to surf - and i got much much more :)

Sarah -

The atmosphere at Tiny Whale was brilliant, the food was delicious and we loved our tipi. We got to surf at various spots, tried SUP boarding at sunrise and did yoga with the wonderful Miri each day – as a bit of a newbie to yoga I cannot recommend her enough!
