Surfing Lessons

for Beginners & Intermediate Levels

SS-Academy-01

At the Surf Snowdonia Surf Academy we’re experts at teaching a broad spectrum of abilities, so whether it’s your first time on a board or you’re an experienced surfer, we can help you to get the most out of your time on the water.

 

Our team of friendly and professional surf coaches is led by former British Junior Team coach and multiple Welsh and British champion, Jo Dennison. Highly qualified, experienced and eminently approachable, Jo’s team will help you to progress to the next level – and beyond – with a smile on your face.

Because our waves are generated at the push of the button, there’s no hanging around waiting for the swell to be just right. We’re always ready to go when you are!

 

Our surfing lessons have a 90-minute duration, which includes a land-based pre-surf briefing. Board hire is included in the cost of all beginner and intermediate surf lessons. If you’re an advanced surfer, you can either bring your own board or hire from us. We group our lessons by age and ability.

 

Peak prices apply from Friday 10am until Sunday 4pm and in school holidays. Off peak prices at all other times.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL 1

 

This is for progression beyond the beginner bay. This lesson will help you get your first green wave. It still has a white water take off, which will allow you to catch the wave easily and turns into a green wave as it travels down the lagoon. Once you have all the basic knowledge and skills, it’s time to master riding a green wave, frontside and backside surfing.

 

Objectives:

  • Initiating bottom & top turns
  • Generating speed
  • Maximizing the wave’s potential
  • Equipment progression

Objectives:

  • ‘Dropping in’ to waves
  • Negotiating breaking waves
  • Progression onto the advanced wave
  • Long rides
