*SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY AND CIRCUMSTANCE* For those looking to maximise their time in the water, the full day offers an intensive 4hrs of surfing in a single day. PLEASE NOTE: The full day option is physically demanding and does not suit everyone! We have found that many people become too fatigued to gain any significant benefit from it; so, we would recommend spreading your lessons out over several days, allowing for periods of rest. If you would like to discuss this option, just give us a call on 07974 550 823


Equipment

We will provide all necessary equipment for your lessons free of charge. We use quality soft foam surfboards for all beginners (or wherever we feel it necessary), as your safety is paramount, as well as to give you the best opportunity for success. We have an extensive range of ALDER wetsuits to fit all sizes and shapes, so as to keep our surfers snug and warm throughout their session. We also have a range of progressive surfboards of varied dimensions to cater for developers and intermediates.

Reviewer, Tripadvisor
Our daughters (14 and 11) have just enjoyed 2 x 2 hour sessions with Nico and Emma. They both absolutely loved their lessons and gained far more than just surfing knowledge and experience. Nico and Emma made them feel very welcome and encouraged and supported them such that they were able to stand up and steer! Excellent confidence booster and an opportunity for us parents to enjoy a cream tea! Thank you guys - superb value for money too. Emma.
