Intermediate Surf Lessons Newquay

Develop your surf skills

If you have already had a few surf lessons, are comfortable with catching white water waves and getting to your feet but feel the board has more control than you, these are the lessons for you. Our surf coaches can start to break down and refine your technique so that you can move on to catching green waves, trimming down the line and learning to turn. To take part in intermediate surf lessons we ask that participants are regularly up to their feet catching waves and can ride 8/10 waves in the white water all the way to the beach. Maximum group size of 6 surfers, £50pp for 2 hours including all equipment.
