Hi 73snowy, Thank you for your nice review and for choosing Get Wet Surf School. I’m happy to hear you loved your surf lesson. Being a strong swimmer is not necessary but it's always a plus cause you can go deeper and tackle bigger waves. We recommend having a group lesson first and if you really like it go for the private. That way we can work more on improving your technique rather than teaching you to stand up :) Hope you keep surfing and let us know if you are interested in having a private lesson with us.
Thanks again for your feedback,
See you in the water ;)
