JUNIOR SURF COACHING

We offer Junior surf coaching weeks in the holidays for children that are more advanced.

Our coaching program differs from the standard holiday program in that we concentrate on more advanced surfing – unbroken wave riding and add a depth of understanding via both practical water and land based lessons on technique, fitness improvements and classroom based learning on technique and theory.

All junior surfers must be able to ride along unbroken waves with consistency and be able to swim a minimum of 100m with confidence. Juniors should be 10yrs old however if you have an exceptional good young surfer that is younger please get in touch.

Coast to Coast have been running junior development programmes successfully for over a decade, with three generations now of young surfers making national surf teams.

Availability Sessions run through the holidays.

In the event of no waves, you will be contacted in advance and offered an alternative sport suitable to the weather conditions, such as stand up paddle, coasteering, surf skate or a beginner zero surf class.  Our range of sports means that we can offer an activity in all but the most extreme weather conditions.
