Our groups feature a ratio of 1 instructor to 6 students. However, if the waves get bigger or the crowds increase, our instructor to student ratio will increase as well. Of course, we want to avoid big waves and the crowd, so we have a van available and access to several locations ensuring the best conditions for your skill level.
