Surfing stand-up style is one of the most satisfying but demanding of all board sports. This surf school based at Newquay in Cornwall aims to provide the best professional coaching available in the UK for all levels from beginners to advanced surfers.
The instructors not only give you a structured lesson – which makes the most of your abilities – but they will show you some of the real essence of surfing. The coaches are also lifeguards and will be on hand at all times. You’ll start with a brief talk on ocean and beach safety followed by a beach-based warm-up and practice session before you paddle out into the waves. Then it’s time to get up on your board and ride the surf.
It may be an age-old cliche but for many surfing is not just a sport but more a way of life.
