Kids Surfing | Surf Snowdonia

KIDS SURFING

Would your child like to learn a brand new skill in a beautiful, safe, world-class environment? Then dive right into this!

 

At the Surf Snowdonia Academy we are passionate about sharing our love of surfing. That’s why we’ve designed a whole range of courses which are especially geared to introducing this wonderful sport to your kids.

 

Whether you’re an experienced surfer or completely new to the sport, surfing regularly will really help them to fast-track their development.

 

Led by British and multiple Welsh surf champion Jo Dennison, our friendly, patient and professional coaching team delivers structured lessons and courses which help children and teenagers to develop and progress their skills quickly.

Younger surfers will focus on developing their fundamental movements, whilst older kids can be challenged on theory as well as their physical skills.

 

To maximise your child’s surfing experience we teach at a ratio of 1 surf instructor to 6 learners. That’s a higher ratio than recommended by national governing body (the International Surfing Association recommends a ratio of 1 coach for 8 learners) because we think it delivers better results.

 

Our fun, fully supervised sessions will help your child to become a competent, confident and considerate surfer as well as encouraging them to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle.

Equipment

 

We have a full size range of Ripcurl wetsuits, boots and gloves to keep everyone nice and warm in the water. Hire is just £5 per session.

 

Our beginner learners use Softech surf boards which are made of foam and very buoyant. The cost of the board hire is included in your lesson.

 

The waves & safety for children

 

Surf Snowdonia is an inland surfing lagoon and that comes with some great advantages over ocean surfing.

 

Our waves are regular and consistent; that means you get a really high wave count in your surf sessions. Coupled with qualified instruction this creates a great environment for your progression rate.

Surf Snowdonia is a really safe environment for learners, with minimal currents and far fewer dangers than you might find in the ocean. Our lagoon is always well lifeguarded in addition to our 1:6 coach to learner ratio.

 

Our beginner bays have small white water waves and small green waves that are ideal for children to grow in confidence and progress their skills.

 

Parents’ involvement

 

For Little Ripper sessions (children aged 5-7) parents and / or guardians MUST accompany their children in the water at all times. Adult wetsuits are provided for accompanying adults free of charge.

For the rest of our kids classes we strongly recommend that parents or guardians stay on hand at all times, just in case your child gets cold or needs a little extra encouragement.

Kids beginner surf lessons

 

We offer sessions for the following age groups:

 

LITTLE RIPPERS (5-7 year olds)

GROMS (8-13 years old)

 

Beginner lessons are for kids just starting to learn to surf and will contain everything they need to know from learning about the different parts of the board to catching a wave, standing up and – most importantly – having fun.

 

Every lesson is 90 minutes long – that’s 30 minutes on land covering safety, surf-specific skills and some warm up games followed by one hour of fun and learning in the water.
