To be honest we don’t have much experience teaching 5/6 year olds.
I would say: get a small foamboard or rent one, so that they are safe, and also keep an eye on surf conditions. You would probably aim for a 1-2 feet day, so that they can learn to surf in tiny waves while feeling safe. We have friends that have kids that age and a few of them can get a bit scared if they wipe out in waves that feel a bit big to them, and sometimes it can be months before they want to go back out in the water.
Hope this helps and I might drop further advice here in the future when my 1-year-old gets a bit older haha.
