Surf Lesson FAQs

1. Why Surf in Northumberland?
Northumberland has a beautiful and untouched coastline that offers an abundance of water-sports activities. Surfing here is an uncrowded, peaceful and enriching experience, and although not exposed to the same famous conditions as Cornwall, on the right day it can be just as good as anywhere in Cornwall.

2. I’ve never surfed before, is that ok?
Definitely! Our flexible surf courses are designed for absolute beginners in mind. We can’t stress enough that you don’t need any previous surfing experience to have a go, though it is recommended that you be a good swimmer and reasonably fit.

3. What is the instructor to student ratio?
A maximum of 8 students per 1 instructor.

4. What is the average age of participants?
We welcome all ages. However, most of our surfers are between 10 to 40 years of age. There is no age restriction, but you should be physically fit and ready for the challenge.

5. Are Surf boards and wetsuits included?
Yes! Just let us know your height and we’ll bring along a suit that fits you – and a board the right length.

6. What about the conditions?
Some times we are caught-out by the weather. We always ask student check-in and confirm details the morning or night before a lesson. We don’t take you out if its too small, or if the weather is not deemed safe.
