Following the huge success of the Kids Club last year we are pleased to announce that we are running the Kids club once again this year. The Kids club is running Monday to Friday during the May half term and then every Saturday and Sunday until around October. The kids club will also run most days throughout the summer holidays. (Subject to surf and conditions) It is £15 per person per session and the cost includes all equipment.
The kids club is open to anyone aged 6 to 16.
Sessions are tailored based on the abilities of the group but follow the same basic structure.
All Lessons include the following elements:
- Equipment issue & Getting into wetsuits
- General Beach Safety
- Recall and other signals
- The board and its parts
- Warm Up
- Entry into the sea – depth etc
- Catching waves / Prone position
- Correct hand and body position
- Action on a wipeout
- Cool down
- Conclusion and debrief
Lessons are arranged in small groups with a maximum of eight kids per instructor and no more than 16 in a session so book early to avoid disappointment.
Lessons normally last about 2 hours. You can expect to spend around 3/4 of the lesson in the sea. We provide all the equipment you require (Surfboard, Wetsuit, and during colder seasons boots gloves and hoods) All you need to bring is swimwear and a towel. It is advisable to bring warm clothes for after the session.
You can register your interest by calling the shop on 0191 258 2496 (The shop is open 10:30 – 17:00). Please note there is extremely high demand and limited availabilty for the kids club. If you have not pre booked by phone you are likely to be unable to participate.
