Open group SURF or SUP lesson (Beginner to Improver)

Whether you never surfed before or tried it just a few times in the past and would like to experience the thrill of taking to the water whilst meeting others at the same stage of learning, then these lessons are for you.  Group ratios never exceed 1:8 so they still have a personal feel and allow us to differentiate between the various needs, whilst you encounter a safe, fun and social learning environment.  This is a perfect introduction or refresher to the foundations of surfing or SUPing.

What will be covered in the lesson?

During a 2 hour Surf lesson you will cover the basics of surfing and the equipment, board management in and out of the surf, paddling the board, catching waves prone, standing up riding white water waves, wave selection, trimming techniques, basic surf etiquette, ocean awareness, surf safety and any future advice to help you as a surfer.

During a 2 hour SUP lesson you will cover the basics of stand up paddle boarding and the equipment, carrying the board, paddling whilst prone/kneeling and standing, improved paddling techniques, basic turning techniques, flat water etiquette, ocean awareness, flat-water/surf safety and any future advice to help you SUPing.

Prices are: £24.50 for U’16 and £29.50 for adults. 

Private Surf

Private low ratio lessons (1:1, 2:1, 3:1) are also available.  These are ideal if you fit into the following: a beginner/novice needing some more detailed tuition; an intermediate wanting to progress from riding the white water to surfing green waves out back; a more advanced surfer trying to master certain maneuvers; an intermediate wanting to learn how to ride an SUP in small surf; a small group or family who want private tuition just for themselves.

What will be covered in the lesson?

During the 1 hour lesson (1hr water time) you will receive a surf specific warm up and sea safety conditions brief. Then an initial 5-10 minute surf assessment will be carried out whilst you displaying what you can already do.  You will then be given up to 3 teaching points to work on throughout the lesson, whilst reinforced with continual tuition of the instructor. The lesson will then conclude with a short plenary and up to 3 teaching points to work on for the future.

Prices are: 1:1 £45, 2:1 £40 per person, 3:1 £35 per person.

What will be covered in the lesson?

3rd PARTY PROVIDER LESSONS

Since 2008 we have been acting as a 3rd party provider, supplying SURF, SUP, surf lifesaving and water-based games lessons for Kingswood Residential Outdoor Education and Activity Centre.  We can tailor our lesson content and times to suit, as well as offer discounted prices to your business or school.  Allow us to do the practical hard work so you can concentrate on effectively managing your administration.    

Whilst covering all the foundations of learning and progressing in an open group SURF or SUP lesson, our desire is to see towards the end of the course pupils progress to an intermediate level where they paddle out back and begin to surf the green waves.  As an addition there will also be sessions covering surf lifesaving skills using specific rescue boards and water based games. Each lesson throughout the course will be built around safety, fun, education, team building and group cohesion. 

Funded School Groups

Each year we apply for Sport England funding through the Active Norfolk project ‘Sportivate’.  We are then able to provide funded SURF and SUP lessons for local schools, educational groups or alike, either in curricular or extracurricular time.  If you would like your school to be part of this exciting and privileged project then please contact us.

Disability Inclusive Lessons

The experience of surfing, stand up paddle boarding and even the simplicity of just being in the sea can have an incredible life long effect on the lives of those who try it.

We believe these experiences should be available to everybody so we currently provide bespoke 1:1 or low ratio lessons for anyone or group with a registered disability.  These will be tailored directly to the needs of those taking part.   

Since 2009 we have provided lessons for Sidestrand Hall School to children with various disabilities aged from 12-18 years.  Our other previous experience involves working with and alongside the charities Surf Relief, Surfable and Lifeworks as well as direct involvement and leadership roles in SEN departments at high school education.

If you would like yourself, an individual or a group the opportunity to experience some time in the sea surfing or stand up paddle boarding we would love to hear from you and see how best accommodate you.
