Surfing

Surfing has become known as one of the best physical workouts for the body. The simple act of lying on a surfboard and maintaining balance interacts all major muscle groups while the physical act of paddling and getting to ones feet enhances flexibility and strength. Surfing is also good fun and enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages! Lessons are carried out in waist depth water. Land and water based comprehensive instruction. Soft learning boards and wetsuits are all provided. Full supervision by qualified staff at all times: All staff are fully qualified and experienced. Beach is located just 50metres away from Oceanics, Red Cottage so there is not extra travelling.
