We cater for all surfing abilities, from beginners learning to stand and gain water confidence, intermediate surfers exploring unbroken waves and those looking to refine their turns. All of our surf coaches are fully qualified beach lifeguards and ISA surf instructors, with years of experience surfing and in the water. Have fun, feel safe and learn to surf with us.

Do I need to book surfing lessons in advance?

Yes, we recommend you book your surfing lessons in advance with us using our online booking service or give us a call on 01736 755556. Head over to our 'Surf Lessons' page to make a booking.

What do we need to bring with us for our surfing lesson?

All we ask you bring is your swim kit and a towel. If you want to bring your own wetsuit, that's no problem, we recommend not wearing a shortie wetsuit for your lesson as you may get cold, unless its super sunny. Please arrive 15 minutes before your lesson to check in.

What is the youngest age you allow to participate in surf lessons?

The youngest we allow are 7 years and above. We do ask that 7 year olds are accompanied by an adult during the lesson, that is either the adult books in for a lesson themselves, or they borrow a wetsuit from us to accompany the child in the water during their lesson. We ask for everyone participating in surf lessons to be able to swim at least 25m in a pool unaided.
