Options for Intermediate Coaching:

Depending upon your budgets and time, we can offer the following types of intermediate level coaching sessions:

Group Surf Lessons:


We run group surf lessons everyday and on these sessions, we always have clients at differing surfing levels, from complete beginners to intermediates.

To allow us to teach you effectively, we allocate a surf coach for each level, so if you are an intermediate level surfer, you'll join the group with one of our intermediate coaches, along with other clients at this level. We usually operate at a ratio of 1:5 on intermediate group lessons.

Group Surf Lessons are priced from £35 per 2 hour lesson.
