2015 will be our 20th year operating as a Surf School on Croyde beach. From our humble beginnings of setting up from scratch with help from the Princes Trust, we are incredibly proud to now be an accredited Surfing GB / International Surfing Association surf school and Training Centre of Excellence.
From our early days of driving around Croyde collecting customers in our bright yellow Land Rover, we are proud to now have a permanent centre with reception, changing rooms, equipment storage and classroom area right on the beach at Croyde. We have also expanded over the hill to have a centre at our second location of Saunton Sands. We were the first surf school in the area and our two decades of teaching surfing to over thousands of customers has ensured our core values of coaching have always been to learn, improve and excel.
To get our landmark season up and running, over the Easter holidays Mother Nature has provided us with some of the warmest, sunny conditions in recent years. Our two full time Senior coaches Will and John, who are both starting their tenth year coaching with us, have been frothing on the excellent coaching conditions all our early customers have enjoyed. Many happy customers have started their surfing journey with us over our first few weeks and we have already trained our first group of Beach Lifeguards on one of our RLSS courses.
As always, we are buzzing with anticipation of the summer season. We have more lifeguard courses running over the coming weeks as well as our ISA/SGB surf instructor courses. Things are shaping up to be one of the best seasons yet and we are excited to see you all in the surf with us wherever that may be: Saunton, Croyde, Portugal or Sri Lanka.
