JUNIOR HOLIDAY SURF COURSES

Coast to Coast offer fantastic holiday surf courses for juniors aged 7yrs* to 16yrs! Adapting to daily conditions with surfing, bodyboarding, surf skate, coasteering and beach games. Our courses aim to help our junior surfers progress building water confidence, knowledge and skills.

Each course consists of four morning or afternoon lessons running Monday to Thursday, every week of the holidays. Classes are run by our team of experienced friendly staff and classes and are limited to 8 children per instructor. Courses follow our surf level programme at stages 1-3.

In the case that surf does not co-operate we also offer coasteering, snorkelling and stand up paddling so the children are having fun even if its flat or big surf!

All juniors must be able to swim 50m as a minimum and be able to carry their own equipment to the beach. These courses are super popular so we recommend booking early!

* For children under 10yrs old – this year we would ask that parents are on hand to help with changing, carrying equipment to the beach and be on hand just in case the child needs extra support out of the water.

YOU CAN MAKE ADVANCED BOOKING NOW. PLEASE SEE  CV19FOR OUR LATEST APPROACH TO BOOKING AND SAFETY.
