Lesson rundown:- 

Our lessons consists of the following elements:

  • Introduction

  • Equipment issue & getting into your wetsuit (which is a lesson in itself at first) 

  • Beach & water safety

  • Description of board and leash

  • Beach demonstration of surfing and correct entry into the sea

  • Warm up followed by entry into the sea

  • Catching a wave and correct prone position on board (lying down)

  • Water confidence building

  • Correction and praise


Once everybody has successfully caught waves and felt the surge and rush of a breaking wave we exit the water together. Next on the beach we demonstrate paddling your board, correct hand & foot position and the hard bit, standing up (on land). The class then have a go at paddling and then jumping up to the standing position on their board, this also tells us if they have a natural or goofy stance (Surfy term for left or right foot forward). We then all enter the sea and begin to catch waves and start stand up surfing.
