One of the coolest sports on the planet.

Surfing with TYF

Surfing is the kind of sport where you feel insanely proud when you can do it and maybe a little uncool when face-planting the Atlantic Ocean for the tenth wave in a row.

Luckily, we’ve got forgiving boards to learn on, and patient-as-saints instructors and over three decades of experience pulling people on to their first waves. We promise to make the amount of time where you look uncool as short as possible. 

This is a fantastic way to gain insight into the surf world, from the roots of surfing to surfboard and wetsuit design, surf prediction and surf safety. In this Classic Surf session we’ll teach you how to paddle, how to negotiate the surf when making your way out back, how to ‘prone ride’ in control of your board and finally the art of standing up and catching your first wave.
