Frequently Asked Questions

Every surfing lesson is two hours long. After arriving at the centre, you’ll be provided with a wetsuit and surfboard. The two hours will begin when you’ve finished changing and are ready to hit the beach!

With this package, you will then be able to keep the gear for the rest of the day to keep practicing!

All our Instructors are fully qualified Beach and Surf Safety Lifeguards and trailblazing ISA awarded surf instructors. They’ve undertaken extensive First Aid training and we endeavour as an Activity Centre to regularly train our staff so they have experience in all weather and water conditions. Every instructor must have years of personal experience in the water and we also work in close partnership with the RNLI presence on every beach to ensure your safety in and out of the water.

Yes! Surfing is a year round activity, you can even surf your way into New Year!

  • Wetsuits – You’ll be given a full body neoprene suit designed to prevent chill whilst submerged in water.
  • Coloured Rash Vest– It’s important for your instructor to be able to see you in the water, so a coloured rash vest makes your group visible!
  • During the winter you’ll be provided with some extra kit to help keep you warm on colder days!
    • A wetsuit hood
    • Neoprene gloves
    • Neoprene boots

All our surfing instructors wear exactly the same equipment as you and will also take a First Aid Kit in case of minor injuries on the beach. In the unlikely even of a serious incidents occurring during a surfing lesson, the RNLI beach lifeguards will be on hand to respond and assist your surfing instructor.

If you have your own suit please bring it along but wait until you’ve spoken with our instructors before putting it on. Some wetsuits will be too thin for certain weather and water conditions.

All you need to bring is your swimwear and a towel. We will provide you with everything else!

If you have any medical needs, injuries or special requirements, just give us a ring and we can talk through how best we can cater for your needs during your surfing experience!

Surfing requires a basic level of fitness and it certainly gets the heart pumping, but you don’t have to be an athlete.

We ask that everybody who takes part in our surfing experiences can swim a minimum of 50 metres. However, during a beginner session there is no need to go any deeper than waist depth water as you’ll be practicing in broken waves!

The beach is only a 5 minute walk from our activity centre and easily accessible for those not wishing to take part in the surfing lesson.

We strongly advice against wearing glasses in the surf in case they fall off! However, you will be able to wear them during the instruction part of the lesson on the sand. They can then be stored with our first aid kits on the beach whilst you’re practicing in the water.

Surfing takes a lot of practice to get the hang of, but once you’ve got the basic skills they’re easy to build on. This is what is so great about this package! You can learn and develop your skills in the lesson and then practice, practice, practice!
