Beginner Lessons

A full course is usually done as two half days or Part 1 can be done as a stand-alone course covering all the basics:

(The programme below is the normal schedule but may be altered on the day due to weather and surf conditions.)

Part 1 The first session (Half day learn to surf standing up £48.) covers:

  • A beach safety talk about suitable surf and weather conditions and the kind of things to look for to get a safe and successful surf session.
  • The equipment: wetsuit, board care & fittings and how to carry it.
  • Going out through the surf easily, turning round, choosing the right wave and surfing back in lying down with control.
  • Paddling, more advanced steering and the main control points of the board (still lying down).
  • Introduction to standing up on the board.

Each of these stages has a 10 minute intro on the beach then into the water to practice for 20 minutes or so and these short modules make it quite suitable for both children and adults. Once you're comfortable with one technique you move onto the next.

Running time is approximately 2 and a half hours. Most people get to stand up for a couple of seconds with good technique .. (longer if they're active in any other sports).

Part 2 The second session (Basic level Improver course £48.) covers:

  • Further, faster, and doing turns.
  • Longer rides and trimming the board for more speed.
  • Improving stance and balance on the board.
  • Turning technique while standing.

Both parts are very thorough and contain a lot of background theory as you progress through the practical sections so that you will really get to understand a lot about beach safety, about surf and about how the board works as you develop your own riding technique. sessions are run according to demand so you can book by mailing or phoning to check availability for the dates you prefer. Group size averages around five and if it's a one to one coaching session it will be slightly shorter ... around two hours.

All the prices include the equipment.

It is possible to do both sessions on the one day if you're active in other sports but you'll get a much better result over two days with a bit of time to think and rest in between the sessions.

Price for both sessions booked together is £75
