Beginner Surf Lessons...

This isn’t like school at all - the Surf’s Up! way is to treat you as an individual. make it fun and inspirational.


This is where we come into our own - this is where all the other surf schools up and down the country want to know what we’re up to! Catching


You’ll already be a competent surfer in the white water, but are ready to take on unbroken waves. This can be a very frustrating phase in your surfing development but it offers the most reward.


Aimed specifically at kids 7 yrs and younger. A chance to get a feel for the water and experience riding waves for the first time. Parent Warning - these kids will often be better than you by the end of one session!!


It makes sense to maximise your time in the surf. You can spend weekend after weekend flapping around thinking you’re making progress when in reality you’re probably standing still.


Having seen what we can do for a one off, well you can only imagine how much you’ll progress by doing a series of lessons - ie. a course! It really does make a lot of sense.
