Three or more so years ago, I never, even in my imagination, thought I'd able to get up on a surfboard and surf, let alone get hooked, until my son and I did lessons with Holly and Jay. Regardless of what level you are in at surfing; whether you want to learn, progress or refine your surfing skills, I would highly recommend contacting Salt Shack Surf School for coaching sessions. Salt Shack Surf School is now based in Gisborne where waves are aplenty! Holly also runs epic ladies surf and yoga camps - a must do not just for what you can learn and improve but also the lasting friendships with other like minded ladies!
