Home - Longboard Coaching Weekend
It may be difficult to guarantee the perfect waves every day – but the next longboard coaching weekend at our surf centre in Newquay promises the opportunity to enjoy an exhilarating break away from the stresses and strains of modern life whilst honing your skills on the water.
The two-day course covers surfing technique (cross stepping, nose riding, generating speed, etc), fitness in surfing, board design, IPS in surfing, surfing psychology, oceanography and more.
We suggest arriving on Friday evening, from here you will be able to chill out or have a few drinks in Newquay. The next day the course starts at 10am, depending on the surf conditions we will aim to have an initial surf session to evaluate everyone’s level. From here on in, the course structure is designed to fit with the best tides, and location. We normally finish up around 4pm on Sunday allowing plenty of time for people to head off in the car, or catch the plan home
We are also very proud to announce our sponsorship with Science in Sport, the UK’s top leader in sports nutrition products and lush longboard skateboards. If you fancy trying out a new style of longboard we have over a dozen different boards for you to pick and choose from. A quick trip to the workshop of Will Eastham (Surfboards UK) and a chance to see a board being made and ask as many questions about board design as you like.
Your coach, Chris Thomson, a level four BSA approved surf coach and professional longboarder will guide you through the weekend to ensure you do improve. Chris has delivered dozens of these courses, each time honing his personal advanced coaching skills. The number of people has kept small on the coaching weekend to enable Chris to really build on your surfing.
Your accommodation while in Newquay is at our cool surf lodge a few doors down from our training centre. Friday and Saturday night are included in the price, but longer stays are easily arranged. Rooms are shared and the lodge will be booked out for just the longboard coaching weekend. Breakfast is included, and we would look to all eat out on the Saturday night in town (not included in price).

Great team at Ticket to Ride Surf School and surf lesson from Donncha! Last Sunday 7th August I dropped by Ticket To Ride Surf School on the way from the... read more car park to the beach to see if they could fit in a private lesson. Rory sorted it, which was great, and I then had a 2 hour lesson with a very patient Donncha who managed to get me (mid-fifties) standing up on more or less my first lesson - loved the lesson, the surf and the waves - I’ll be back and when I do, it’ll be to Ticket to Ride Surf School. I hope they’ve survived the mayhem of Boardmasters!
The staff is absolutly wonderful. They are friendly and helpful if you are new to surfing and will set you up with board you need.

Very engaging. They were having a great time. Our kids were 5 and 8 at the time. I also did a two hour session in a group of 4 with Luke. He was very good and took time to explain everything to me, a complete beginner, and by the end of my two hour lesson I was standing on the surf board. Great fun. Super fun knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend
We have always used Ticket to Ride when they were based in Perranporth. They have moved to Watergate Bay, but we were staying next door in Waves, and the... read more school remains as good as ever.
