From white to green .. take your surfing to the next level with our Surf Sistas Coaching Week in Cornwall. A fun and comprehensive course designed specially for you by girls who love to surf!

We all get in a bit of a rut with our surfing at times, still having a great time but wondering if we will ever actually step it up to the next level. If you are struggling to get out the back consistently, not sure how to turn or to duck dive, confused by swell reports, want to buy your own board but have no idea where to start, or your pop-up is a bit of a disaster.. then look no further..
Our Surf Sistas Coaching week aims to get you out of the white water and onto those elusive green waves.

This 5 day course is jam packed with plenty of water time alongside understanding oceanography and swell reports, meeting a local shaper, and learning about surf health and fitness.
Our Surf Sistas coaching team are the most surf stoked people we know. They are dedicated to helping girls to progress with their surfing, so come and join our surf sistahood and experience the rush of surfing for yourself!

See below for the full course lowdown and how to book:
Hours: The course hours are 9.30am - 4.30pm each day, although this will be kept flexible so that we can make the most of the conditions each day. Be prepared for dawnies and sunset sessions if it means we can catch the best waves. We will run a minimum of two water sessions per day alongside theory sessions and an optional visit to a local board shaper. On Thursday evening there is a BBQ for course participants and instructors.
Is this course right for me? This course is targeted at those who have learnt to surf but find themselves in that white water rut. Maybe you have picked up some bad habits with your pop up, need a confidence boost to paddle out the back, want to learn to duck dive or turtle roll, or can catch green waves but need to learn to bottom turn and trim along the wave.

If you are a complete beginner we recommend that you participate in one of our Surf Sistas weekends prior to the course so that you have covered the basics and are already able to stand up in the white water waves.

What will I learn? Following introductions our first water session will be all about finding out what level you are at and setting individual goals for the week. We will then tailor your tuition for the next 5 days around these goals.

During the week we expect to cover the following in the water - pop ups, turtle rolling, paddling, duck diving, board control, turning, positioning, etiquette, and of course confidence.

Out of the water our theory sessions will look at areas needed to enhance your progression such as fitness, nutrition, focus, and core strength and stability.

We will also look at the contributing factors to good surf, and the basics behind wave formation. We will look at tides, wind, swell and how these contribute to daily surfing conditions, applying this knowledge to understanding and using surf reports.

We will make a visit to a local board shaper to discuss board design and how to choose the right board for you.

Video coaching: We will be using video coaching throughout the week to help you to improve your technique.
Road trip: One of our favourite parts of the course is the road trip. We will all check the forecasts together for that perfect spot, making good use of our instructors local knowledge! Then we will strap the boards to the roof and hit the road on our mini surf adventure, stopping for a cream tea on the way home of course!
