Having spent 25 years coaching surf life saving as well as ski paddling, I can’t recommend practical tuition enough. Talking technique only gets you so far.  On the water tuition is the icing on the cake. You’ll be amazed how quickly you can develop your basic surf and down wind ocean skills.

If you fancy paddling on the North Devon coast for a ‘one to one’ or small group session, look no further.  A bespoke ‘Res’perience’ package can be put together to suit your needs and provide the perfect opportunity to practice and perfect your skills.  Coaching sessions local to you also available on request.
