We also offer a variety of specialist lessons in the fastest growing water sport in the world- stand up paddle boarding (SUP). Originating in Polynesia, it involves standing on a super wide and super long board and propelling yourself through the water using a long one bladed paddle.
SUP lessons take place as an alternative to SURF lessons when the conditions are flat. We also run pre-booked flat-water lessons on the Norfolk broads. This is a perfect alternative increasing your core strength and balance stability essential for surfing. It is also a really fun, team building activity for larger groups like stag, hen, birthday, corporate parties, schools, community groups and alike.
Private 1:1 lessons can also be arranged in small waves for those who want to learn how to ride an SUP in the surf.

NOTE: There is no maximum age when taking a lesson however our minimum age is 12yrs for SUP. There is flexibility with minimum ages when taking a private lesson. Please contact us for more details.
Glide Surf School’s main location is overlooking the beautiful North Sea in the quaint seaside town of Cromer, and situated to the right of the iconic pier on the East Promenade. SURF and SUP (stand up paddle boarding) Lessons as well as equipment hire are offered daily from April through to October. Due to our shop being open from March to December lessons and hire can also be arranged during this period.
Enjoy the smaller clean swells protected by the pier, battling the bigger swells as they are channelled down the North Sea, or an idyllic SUP session allowing a unique sea view of the Victorian town and coastline as a backdrop. Followed by a North Sea Coffee experience, a 50 choice tasting of locally made ice creams or a delicious portion of the famous No1 fish and chips, Cromer really has it all!
7 miles East of our main location in Cromer we are now offering SURF and SUP (stand up Paddle Boarding) lessons as well as equipment hire on the golden sandy shores of Mundesley, also an RNLI lifeguarded beach.
We will be open daily during the main peak season of the summer holidays from Saturday 20th July to Sunday 1st September.

Once you have enjoyed surfing a clean summer swell or experienced a tranquil flat day of stand up paddle boarding it is a perfect location to relax with some food and drink.
