How are the surf conditions in low season?
The surf conditions during the off-season are really much more ideal for beginners and novices.
Much fewer people in the water hence less hassle. Smaller surf lesson groups as well as smaller much more beginner like waves will ensure beginners and start-ups can enjoy the maximum fun and benefits of starting to surf.
Due to the change in winds, during the off-season we usually head over to the East Coast, where the winds are much more favorable (offshore). The east coast during the off-season offers smaller but still perfect waves and offshore winds. The water is also warmer during the off season :)
