The Fun-damental
Longboarding Course

Welcome to our Level One Longboard Surf Course 'Log ON' (we love a good pun) we've been running and introducing women to Longboarding for 6 years now. This courses is aimed at those who fancy giving longboarding a go or brushing up on those core skills like turning and manoeuvring a log!


Fun and community focused. We use exciting drills and methods to learn in ways that feel good and at times bringing out your inner child!

We will improve your Longboarding through surf sessions, video analysis and theory sessions. Always with a smile and most likely with some dancing.

2 Day Course


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

2 Surf Sessions per 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 Session


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

Is this course for me?

If you have been riding something smaller like a minimal/mid-length, or if you've longboarded for a while. Everyone can benefit from coming back to the core longboard skills. 

  • Longboarding is not ideal to learn to catch unbroken waves, if your still in the white water we recommend our progression courses.

  • Able to stand up
  • Able to catch unbroken waves
  • Starting to more consistently trim across the open face

If your wondering if this is the right course for you or have any questions drop us a message.


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.

Jasmine Testimonial for Gather & Glide Longboard Course.png

I attended the first weekend longboard session Alan and Sam put on together as Gather and Glide and it was the most beautiful weekend! There was a group of likeminded women that had come together for the course and it was a really supportive and fun atmosphere. Alan and Sam have so much experience teaching and it was so apparent, they were able to help us with every small technical detail thanks to the video analysis, and they were always so supportive and encouraging.
