Private surf lessons and coaching with an instructor exclusively looking after you and your group is a great way to ensure maximum progress. Our coaches will look for any bad surfing habits and work with you to overcome them. It is particularly useful when you are at the stage where you want to paddle further out to catch unbroken waves.
With a two hour coaching session we can be mobile and your instructor will take you to the best waves for your ability.
Our rates for private lessons vary depending on the number of participants. We always recommend two hours to gain the full benefit and allow time to put the feedback into practice, however for younger children we can arrange a one hour lesson at 50% of these rates.
These costs are per person, include all equipment if required and transport to an alternative beach if conditions at Croyde are unsuitable.
We also offer our popular Improve Beau Performance with video analysis. This course is aimed at intermediate surfers that want to improve their surfing skills in a short space of time. The day includes video analysis, feedback, plenty of surfing and a chance to keep the footage for review.
