SURFING PEMBROKESHIRE 

INTERMEDIATE SURFING LESSONS

SURFING LESSONS PEMBROKESHIRE • LEARN TO SURF IN PEMBROKESHIRE • EXPERIENCED INSTRUCTORS 

To maximise your improver surfing development course you will need to be on your feet most of the time.

You should feel happy going from prone to standing and have a good board control, including steering and trimming. There’s lots of freestyle, games and exercises to help progress your surfing. Don’t forget beach safety and theory. Concentrate on take-off technique – No knees please.

Before your surf lesson, you will be met by your friendly Outer Reef Surf Coach and meet the rest of your surf group where you will be whisked away to the best beach (the exact beach depends on the conditions on the day) where the waves are ideal for learning to surf.
