Our Coaching

We keep our groups small with only 8 people per course, with three coaches, so we can effectively help and advise everyone.


We have a mix of technical theories and open conversations about surfing. We believe improving your surfing isn't just in the technique but also in the mindset. Our ethos is to give you the permission to play and encourage learning from and supporting each other.


Our technical theories use demonstrations, videos, images, on land practice and in water exercises. We have created our curriculum through years of experience and critical thinking combining them in a way that's easier to understand and digest.

5 or 2 Day

Full days of surf progression, Its exhausting but amazing. You will probably understand the words spaghetti arms.

Our 2 day courses contain condensed theory to what the conditions and ability of the group are.

2 Surfs a day

We have organised the dates of these courses around small (neap) tides so we can surf without the pressure of a tide getting too high or too low.

We surf for as long as the group lasts or conditions allow we aren't limited by any time restraints. 

We Are Mobile

We pick the best surf spots for the day within our permissions. So we will never be bound to surf unfriendly conditions. 

Surf Skate

We use our surf skates for a beginner introduction session and social skate one afternoon/evening. Its amazing to practice turning on land and transfer it to the ocean. *Weather dependent.


'' My confidence and skills within surfing improved drastically after just 1 week with these 2 and I can't wait to book onto another one of their courses next summer!''

Jazz - Improver Course

"We created this course with the intention of including everything that we wish we were taught when we were learning to surf. You could say we learnt the hard way so you don't have to!"
