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 kids surfing, so you can introduce this wonderful sport to your children.

 

We offer individual kids surf lessons, as well as term time and school holiday courses. Surfing regularly will really help your child to fast-track their development. You can be sure that they will be well looked after in our safe, controlled, world-class environment.

 

Led by British and multiple Welsh surf champion Jo Dennison, our friendly, patient and professional coaching team are specially trained in kids surfing. They deliver structured kids surf lessons and courses which help children and teenagers to develop and progress their skills quickly.

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

 

To maximise the kids surfing experience we teach at a ratio of one surf instructor to six learners. That ratio is higher than recommended by our national governing body (the International Surfing Association recommends a ratio of one coach for eight learners) because we think it delivers better results.

 

Our fun, structured, fully supervised kids surf lessons 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 and intermediate learners use Softech surf boards which are made of foam and very buoyant. The cost of the board hire is included in the kids surf lessons.

 

THE WAVES & SAFETY FOR CHILDREN

 

Surf Snowdonia is an inland surfing lagoon which comes with some great advantages over ocean surfing. It is a safe and controlled environment with minimal currents and far fewer dangers than you might find in the ocean. In addition to our 1:6 coach-to-learner ratio, our surf lagoon is always well lifeguarded.

 

We offer expert, age-appropriate surf tuition in a unique world-class learning environment. Unlike ocean-based surf schools, we can guarantee a high wave count in all of our kids surf lessons.

 

Anyone new to kids surfing will start in our beginner bays, where the small whitewater waves and green waves are ideal for building confidence and learning new skills.

 

PARENTS’ INVOLVEMENT

 

For our Little Ripper kids surf lessons (children aged 5-7), a parent or guardian MUST accompany their child in the water at all times. Adult wetsuits are provided free of charge. For the rest of our kids surf lessons we strongly recommend that parents or guardians stay on hand at all times, just in case your child needs a little extra encouragement from the shore.

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 children who are just starting to learn to surf. The beginner kids surf lessons include 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 on the water.

 

All kids surf lessons are 90 minutes long – that’s 30 minutes of dry-side tuition covering safety, surf-specific skills and some warm-up games, followed by one hour of learning in the water.
