Lets Shortboard Together And Level Up Your Surfing!

Our shortboard weekend in Newquay is designed for experienced surfers who are looking at surfing smaller, manoeuvrable boards and for those who are working on flow or getting their boards more vertical!

The 2 day course is jam packed with theory and water time so that you get tons of information and plenty of time to practice the exercises we go through during the course.

Meet fellow shortboard lady shredders and lets have some fun!

Shortboard Coaches

Allannah Brown - Course Leader

Allannah has developed this 2 day course to load you with the tools you need to express yourself and shred harder!


With 14 years of worldwide coaching experience, she combines her passion for shortboarding with a fun, creative approach on the land & in the water to make you feel at ease, so you can surf in a relaxed environment.

"Shortboarding doesn't have to be aggressive or competitive like you see online, it's just another way to enjoy the ocean, there are so many ways to ride smaller boards"

2 Day Course

Our weekend course is jam packed with on land theory & in water drills designed to level up your surfing with likeminded women.

4 Surf Sessions

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, finding waves suitable for shortboarding.

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 (unless the conditions are terrible everywhere we will then switch the surf for something more beneficial).
