I am a married mother of 2 girls and I live in Perth. We emmigrated from the UK in 2011. I am a free lance writer and a Pet Carer and feel very lucky to do something I really love www.petfriends.net.au
There are lockers you can hire and a baby/toddler play area by the seating area at the side of the pool and of course, there are toilets, showers and change rooms. There are 2 party rooms; find out more by clicking here for surf parties and here for climbing parties.
The Coffee House serves speciality coffee plus snacks, sandwiches and toasties to keep hunger at bay after your session and there is a boutique selling men's and women's clothing plus a range of surf and lifestyle products.
A purpose built yoga studio is also on site and classes will be available soon. Like their Facebook page for up to date information.
Now to the exciting bit! You can choose to surf or bodyboard. Board and helmet hire is included in the cost and you need to arrive 30 minutes prior to your session time.
There are different sessions with different wave sizes so even complete beginners can 'find their feet' on a board but also advanced surfers can ride a forever breaking wave and refine their skills. Check their online booking system to find out what waves are available on the day you want to go.
There is a knack to getting in the water and onto the wave but after a few goes, you will have mastered that. There are always fully trained operators in the area that will help you until you build your confidence. There are a maximum of 12 spots per session, so is never crowded and you will have time to collect your board and have a little rest before your next go.
All walls are great fun with the Stairway to Heaven challenge being the scariest in my opinion; walking to a great height with nothing to hold onto and what happens when you get to the top? You will have to visit Aloha Surfhouse and find out yourself!
