Promenade, South Shields, NE33 2JH
Today’s deal with South Shields Surf School is perfect for those who have never picked up a surf board before, or who are looking to build on their skills. Your professional coach will show you how to use the equipment, which is all included in the cost of the lesson, before going through some beach and water safety rules and giving you a demonstration of surfing and the correct entry into the sea.
You’ll then get warmed up and enter the water, discovering how to catch a wave, lie and stand properly on the board, paddle, the correct hand and foot position and the most important bit – the thrill of catching the rush of a breaking wave! You’ll enjoy a further three hours of surfboard and wetsuit hire to practice your newfound moves.
Held at picturesque Sandhaven beach, each surf instructor is a RLSS qualified beach lifeguard as well as an international surfing association coach, so you know you’re going to be in safe hands! Suitable for those aged six and up, it’s a fantastic way to start a new hobby.
