Beginner lesson

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.

South Shields

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.

Rave reviews

"My son Joshua, 9, tries a multitude of sports, but was wary of learning to surf. Thanks to the enthusiasm – and patience – of instructor Nick, Joshua came out of the sea beaming, if a little cold! Equipment is included in the price, from wetsuit to board."

"Myself, my mother, young cousins and a couple of friends went down for a surf lesson with Nick the other day and cannot praise the experience enough! We had a fantastic few hours, full of laughter and came away feeling proud of our new found skill! the instructors are very patient and funny, full of enthusiasm, taking the time to work with each member of the group to ensure you get the bets possible experience. Would highly recommend to anyone!"

"My friend suggested this and once we went once we were totally hooked and went all summer. All of the instructors are fantastic and I can’t recommend it enough!"
