Big Wednesday Surf Club / Kids Club
Big Wednesday Surf Poster Thanks to the level of interest in the Big Wednesday Surf Club that ran throughout the summer holidays for children aged 6 to 16. We are running a kids surf club on a Saturday morning at 09:00 - 12:00.

Following a similar format to the Big Wednesday Club the Saturday surf club will allow children to improve their surfing in a safe and friendly environment with other children of similar ages. Whilst primarily focussing on surfing techniques and catching waves in the water, the club will also work on surf fitness, water safety and aspects of surfing. Like the big wednesday club, these sessions will be available for the special price of £15pp including all equipment. All you need to bring is swimwear and a towel. You can come to as many or as few sessions as you like.

For further information or to register your interest, please contact the shop on 0191 2582496 or Stephen on 07802 444727.
