The freedom you feel as you catch your first proper wave will doubtless have you hooked for good on one of the world's most popular and thrilling watersports! What could be better than a full day to get to grips with how to master the board and the waves, spending as much time as you can having a ball on both? Enjoy warm water and long sandy beaches as you take part in a surfing tradition of more than 70 years.
Meet at 9.30am to get your wetsuit on and grab a board. Start on the beach with a 20-minute lesson on the basics - safety first! - about your surfboard, how to paddle out, how to choose and catch a great wave, and how to stand up and ride all the way to the shore! Then hit the waves for a couple of hours, with coaches on hand to give advice and handy tips!At 12.30 you'll break for a well deserved lunch.There are plenty of restaurants at the beach so a packed lunch or lunch money are needed. At 2pm you'll have a quick run through on the sand - all coaching is tailored to your ability so you'll be taught exactly what you need rather than the group as a whole.This can range from techniques in standing to turning and riding the Green Wave'. At 4.30pm it's back to base to get out of your wetsuit.All participants receive a certificate for their day's efforts.
