We meet at our surf school in the heart on the village of Woolacombe. Then we have an introduction where you meet your instructor and get given your wetsuit, we have changing facilities and storage for your belongings. Next we go the the beach, picking up surfboards from our board store on the way. Once on the beach we have approximately a 15 minute beach theory lesson including a safety brief before abetting the surf. Next we go surfing! your instructor come s int he water with your group and continues with the coaching tips, pointers and fault correction to get you improving as much as possible. They will also have a waterproof camera and will take photos of your successes and wipeouts which are included free as part of the session! AT the end of the 2 hour session we will get your group out, have a debrief on how it went and back to the surf school to get changed, smiles all round!
