Surfskate lessons offer a land training solution to build good surf technique. We look at all the elements of body position in the most common surf moves and teach you the correct fundamentals on land so it becomes more natural in the water.

Our experienced instructors offer advice, drills and video feedback to improve your technique and advise against bad habits. We skate for one hour and then surf the second hour! The 4 session course runs one evening session a week over a month and is open to all levels of surfer.

Coast to Coast have a wide range of specialist skateboards offering potential to mimic both shortboard and longboard surfing (including 6ft+ longboard skateboard). So whatever your preference this is great way to improve!

This product can be booked as individual lessons online or phone the office and book the 4 lesson course pass (20% disc) payable on day 1.
