Do the lessons include the equipment?
Yes, Surfboards and wetsuits are all inclusive in the costs. We also issue boots and gloves in the colder months. You are welcome to bring your own equipment, but this does not affect the cost.


Can we keep the kit after the lesson has finished?

After the lesson, we ask that you return the equipment. 


After taking a beginners lesson, will I need any more lessons?

The first lesson gives you the basics, gets you standing up on your board in the white-water surf zone, keeping you as safe as possible while you have lots of FUN!

If you want to progress to the “outback” and ride unbroken waves, then you would require more lessons. Usually 4-6 lessons is enough for someone to master the basics and be ready to go out and practise on their own, although this is always dependent upon a number of factors including; fitness, surf conditions, wind and tides, and stamina


How many lessons do you recommend?

This is down to your time, budget, commitment, fitness levels and aspirations etc.

For a beginner we would generally recommend at least 2 or 3 lessons to start off, this would allow for reasonable progression. However, for a more fulfilling development with a view to keep surfing for the rest of your life, a 5 lesson course is advisable, at the end of this it is normally possible to get to a level where you could go out on your own and practise your skills, although many of our regular customers come back for more intermediate lessons, where we cover more advanced techniques


How many lessons a day do you recommend on a course of lessons?

Once again this is very much dependent on your personal circumstances.
As a general rule our recommendation if you have the time spare, is to take 1 lesson per day, if you are on a longer course. This allows for plenty of rest between sessions, we tend to see better levels of progression from our students with this structure and motivational levels remain higher.


Surfing is a demanding sport and people often over estimate their abilities / expectations. Taking it easy and giving 100% on the session is the way to go!


How old do I need to be?

We take children from 8 years and over in our group lessons. There is no upper age limit. All under 18’s must have their booking/ enrolment forms signed by a parent/ guardian before they can take part in a lesson. Children under 8 can be taken on a One to One or Private Family lesson. If you have any questions regarding this policy please give us a call on 07566249639


Do I need to be able to swim?

Yes! We do stipulate that all participants must be able to swim 50 metres (two lengths of a pool). This is a basic requirement for obvious safety reasons. All customers must complete a course enrolment / declaration, stating that they can swim this distance. (Parents/ guardians to sign for under 18’s). 


What if I have a medical issue, can I still take part?

All customers must complete the course booking/ enrolment form prior to the session. This gives us information on medical info etc; it is not disclosed to any 3rd party.

Please contact us in advance if you have any concerns about your health.


I have been surfing for a while, and I don’t want beginner type group lessons, what else can you offer?

Every surfer / sports person no matter what level will benefit from coaching. We offer advanced coaching, which is aimed at upper level and contest surfers looking to improve.


We can cater for a first time novice to a competitive level surfer.


What happens if the surf is too big, dangerous or too small / flat?

If the surf is too big and the conditions dangerous and we cannot run a lesson then you will be given 3 options.

  • Your lesson will be re-arranged for another convenient time /day.
  • You will be given a credit voucher for future lessons.
  • You will be refunded

Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for more details


Isn't the sea really cold?

All lessons are inclusive of equipment and in winter (and spring or autumn if required) we also provide boots and gloves to keep you toasty and warm, as well as high quality winter wetsuits. The North Sea is more than bearable for most of the year, wetsuit technology nowadays allows for you to be very warm even in the coldest of days..


Do I need to book?

It is preferable to book in advance. If you leave it until the last minute or just drop by there is no guarantee that we will be able to fit you in.
