Surf's up in Suffolk! If you know any kids that like to get
active and want to learn one of the world's coolest sports, this 90
minute surf lesson on Southwold beach is the perfect introduction.
They'll learn the basics of surfing in a fun and safe environment,
and if they catch the surfing bug, this could be the start of a
lifelong love of riding waves.
Of course the lessons start with a full safety briefing and an
introduction to surfing, and everything they need is included. Once
they are kitted out with their wetsuits and learner boards, they'll
start with a warm-up and some dry practice. The instructor will
explain how and when to paddle, how and when to pop up, and how to
stand once you've gotten to your feet, and they'll give it a go
while they're still on the sand. After they've gotten the hang of
the pop up, it's time to hit the water to try it for real. The
beach has perfect, small and safe waves that are ideal for
beginners who are just getting to grips with their technique. The
rest of the lesson will be spent taking on waves - probably wiping
out quite a bit, but having a great time while they do!
Surfing is an incredible sport that teaches strength, balance
and patience - and the younger they start to learn the better - so
if you're looking for the perfect gift for a kid who loves the
water, this Suffolk surfing lesson might just be the start of
