Kids Surf Club is for ages from 6 to 18. Our surf instructors are RLSS qualified beach lifeguards and I.S.A. (International surfing association) or Surfing England surfing coaches. They are all D.B.S cleared. Please could you arrive at least 15 minutes early for your surf lesson. All equipment is supplied however you will need to bring a towel & some warm clothing. 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.
