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).
