JUNIOR SURF LESSON

Our super popular surf lessons for children are back! These fun single lessons are for 7yrs-16yrs olds and can be progressive as we cover both level 1 and 2!!

Level 1 is for beginners, learning to catch waves, standing and building understanding in how to be safe in the water. Level 2 helps juniors build skills such as speed control, turning and control while increasing knowledge in riding small unbroken waves.

All lessons also include a friendly experienced Coast to Coast instructor, soft boards and top of the range wetsuits and boots to keep you warm whatever the weather. We increase numbers of these lessons over the summer months from May.

PLEASE SEE  CV19 FOR OUR LATEST APPROACH TO BOOKING AND SAFETY.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all the staff who ran today's beginners lesson. My son Jack had 'the best day ever'. He loved it so much. The staff were so kind to him and helpful and we were all super impressed.
