There’s nothing quite like surfing your first wave and Nick Thorn Surf School can make it happen. Start by learning the best ways to stay safe in the sea and the etiquette of the sport before moving on to surfing adventures. The school is based in Woolacombe and the Kids Surf Club is a great way for children over the age of 8 to learn.
Each member of the club receives a certificate of achievement at the end of the course. Don’t worry if your child needs lots of encouragement when learning something new, there are also incentives to make sure each child gives their all, such as goodie bags for the most committed and the best improver.
All sessions need to be booked in advance, and you just need to take swimwear, a towel and a jumper for afterwards. It’s also worth wearing sun cream while you’re in the water too. The hire of the surf board and wetsuit is included in the session price, and depending on the time of year you can choose from morning, afternoon or evening sessions. Nick Thorn Surf School guarantees plenty of support at every stage of learning to surf and has helped hundreds of visitors master the sport.
