A two hour introductory lesson to the thrilling watersport of Surfing, in beautiful Suffolk.
- Southwold (Suffolk)
- Price for 1 Participant
Get ready to ride some waves with this fun and challenging introduction to surfing on Southwold Beach in Suffolk. If you've ever wondered just why surfing is so popular, and why it's not just a sport but a whole lifestyle for millions of people, this is your chance to give it a go and find out just how awesome it is.
This is the perfect beginner's surfing lesson; you'll be learning from some expert surf instructors, and your suit and surfboard are provided. Southwold Beach has great little waves that mean a safe and fun environment for getting to grips with the basics. After a warm up and an introduction, you'll do a little practising on the sand - getting familiar with paddling, popping up and (hopefully) staying up! Once you have some idea of the technique it's time to get wet, and try it for real. Your instructor will watch as you get the hang of catching a wave at just the right moment, coaching you as you go so that you can progress and hopefully get standing up on the board. It's not as easy as the experts make it look, but it's a whole lot of fun to learn and you're guaranteed to have a smile plastered across your face for the full 90 minute lesson - and when you do manage to catch a wave and get to your feet... well, there's no feeling quite like it.
If you've always wanted to try out the beach-bum life, or you know someone who loves the water and the outdoors, this 90 minute introduction to surfing in Suffolk is the perfect experience gift. Surf's up!
