Fortunately they happen to be excellent for surfing as well. Especially as the reliable waves and beach breaks (in most cases) make this the perfect place to learn to surf.

We at Original Travel know some pretty good surf instructors and we can arrange private or group tuition, and for any age from 7 upwards, including wetsuit and board hire and informative but friendly instruction. If you're taking the children and you're interested in learning to surf en masse, be prepared for humiliation - you might find that the little ones pick it up a good deal quicker than you.
