Would your students like to learn a great new skill in a beautiful, safe, world-class environment?  At Surf Snowdonia we offer engaging, accessible surfing sessions which are especially geared for school groups.

Our surf academy coaches deliver structured surf courses and lessons with students from primary age right through to sixth form. No previous surfing experience is necessary and all equipment is supplied. Our dedicated schools booking team will work closely with your school to ensure we tailor the session to exactly suit your needs.

Safe and accessible surfing

Our 300-metre man-made wave pool has some distinct advantages over surfing in the ocean. First of all, there’s no hanging around waiting for the swell to be right – our waves are guaranteed to roll every 90 seconds. Consistent and regular waves will really help to fast-track your students’ progression.

Second, our surf lagoon offers a highly supervised and controlled environment with far fewer dangers than you would find in the ocean. There is no navigating tides, rocks or other ocean hazards. And we have comfortable, heated changing facilities and showers within a few paces of our lagoon.  No sandy swimming kits or freezing windy beaches to contend with.

Our friendly, patient and professional coaching team at our surf academy is led by five-times – and current – Welsh champion surfer Jo Dennison. Jo is also a former British Junior Team Coach. Under her expert guidance, the academy coaches deliver will help your students to progress their skills quickly and with a smile on their face.

Teaching is done at a maximum of six students per instructor, and a typical session features half an hour of dry-side warm up and instruction followed by an hour on the water. Your students can come along for a one-off session or book a 6-week course.
