Then stroll down the sand to the water’s edge and go through the safety/instructional chat and a good warm up. Once you are ready and warmed up it’s time to hit the surf! If you want to bring your own equipment then this is fine. The instructor will check this over at the start of the session to see if it is suitable to use.
