The coaches at Surf Steps live for the waves, and it’s that enthusiasm to pass the experience on to as many people as possible that makes their surfing lessons such great fun. Surf Steps offers surfing lessons for beginners of all ages, and a two hour session includes full instruction, surfboard and wetsuit hire.
You never forget the first time you ride a wave standing up on the board, and that’s the moment that the instructors aim to help you experience. Once you’ve got the bug you’ll want to get back out there and wait for another wave, so surfing lessons aren’t only something different during a Dorset holiday but they’re often the start of a lifelong hobby.
Are you at that stage where you’ve enjoyed a few lessons but still don’t feel quite up to the level of those around you? Go for one of the special improve sessions that are designed to help you brush up and build your confidence after picking up the basics. The instructor will be on hand throughout your two hour session to offer advice and expert tips, and if you book yourself in at the beginning of your holiday you’ll be prepared to impress on the waves for the rest of it.
If the water’s calm why not have a go at Stand up Paddle Surfing (SUP)? This deceptively skilled form of surfing has seen a revival in its native Hawaii recently, and you’ll stand on a long board and push yourself through the water using a long paddle.
