Yeah they do do the surfing lessons then. But it will be cold. Maybe not for you Kiwi's but us Aussies will be too soft to be at the beach then!

My sons are coming over to Coolum for a school camp from Singapore.they are aged 11 yrs. they would love to learn surfing ( it's part of their camp itenerary) but are very wary of surfing and injuring themselves. Is surfing safe for such young kids as they have never ever done that before though they are proficient swimmers?
