No experience required but should feel comfortable in the water and be able to swim. All equipment provided; boards, dry suits and lifejackets.

Please note:  Dry suit sizes are not available for smaller kids, therefore smaller kids may not be able to participate for their own safety & comfort with the water being only 12C.

Even with dry suits, there is no guarantee that kids will stay 100% dry. You may want to bring a bathing suit for them to wear under the dry suit.
