'Stall and Step'
Level Two
Longboard Surf Course

Welcome to our Level Two Longboard Surf Course
‘Stall & Step’

We’ve been teaching Longboarding for 5 years now, and have decided to run dedicated 2 day courses to learn to cross step and nose ride. Where we can delve deeper using some exciting new drills and methods to learn in ways that make you feel good.

This is something we wished existed when we started cross stepping. Don’t get us wrong it takes time and commitment to get it right as its hard! But this course will set you well on your way with all the knowledge and ways to succeed and get them toes over!

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

Sam Sunshine - Course Leader

Sam has been introducing Women to Longboarding for the last 5 Years, always a friendly face in the community and a firm belief in community over competition (but is also currently competitively second in the Uk and has been sponsored over the years.)

Great at putting you at ease when making your first steps. Reminding you never to take yourself or surfing too seriously, while secretly knowing that when you have fun and relax you improve the most.

Cross stepping


2 Day Course

Short, intense, and fun. Using images, video and demos on land. Then taking that into the water following drills to improve while having fun. All that while receiving one on one tips from our experienced coaches.  

4 Group Surf Sessions


Mad for it we will surf until we have spaghetti arms! (we wont enforce this don’t worry!) We surf for as long as the group and waves work well as we aren’t limited to any time restraints.

Our courses have all been scheduled around small (neap) tides so we can surf without the pressure of the tide getting too low or too high.

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).

Surf Progression

Guaranteed to improve with our longboard programme that has been developed slowly through experience and testing. Your learn more than you can achieve in 2 days and will be taking away goals and knowledge for the future.

Video and Photo Analysis


When you get to this level in your surfing this is absolute KEY in improvement. We will do an Individual analysis session for you within the 2 days. We also have a local professional In water photographer join us for the best session. 


All footage you get to keep, It will also go into our private student database so we know what you are working on next time you join us.

Meal Together/Party

Lets celebrate our good surfs together! We will either organise a Bbq on the beach or book a table at our favourite restaurant depending on the weather. Who knows where the night could
