Family surfing holidays

Anyone over 8 years old (grandparents included) can take surf lessons with Extreme Academy, our specialist school for beach sports.


The school’s experienced, qualified instructors tailor lessons to suit individuals’ ability. As well as traditional surfing, you can have lessons in kitesurfing, waveski, stand-up paddlesurfing and handplaning. Learning to surf is a great way of experiencing the sea – and of spending time with each other.

The cost of a lesson includes all the equipment you need to keep you safe and warm. You have the use of hot showers, lockers and changing facilities. Extreme Academy also offers technical equipment hire, including wetsuit and board hire for children under 8 years old.

If you are staying during school holidays, each child 8 years and over will receive a free surf lesson with the Extreme Academy.
