Surf SouthWest (Devon)
North Devon is one of the most popular places in the UK for surfing, and no beach is more popular in this area than Croyde Bay. Surf SouthWest runs a school across both this beach and neighbouring beach Saunton Sands between March and November every year.
Instead of offering single classes, the school structures their lessons in blocks, you can choose either a half day (2 hours), a full day (4 hours) or a weekend (6 hours) which comes with a lunch included.
The classes strictly adhere to the Surfing GB coaching ratio. , meaning that no more than eight students will be taught by one instructor, although the school notes that class sizes are often smaller.
The school offers Level 2, Level 3 and Level 4 Surfing GB qualified coaching for more experienced surfers staff, coaching surfers right through to elite standard. Their programmes cover topics such as conditioning/fitness training, contest strategy, mental preparation and nutrition with senior coaches.
