About the Event

Get the family together, put on a wetsuit and jump into the blue Atlantic Ocean; its time to learn how to surf the waves into the shore! The perfect opportunity to become part of the lifestyle and take in the culture of surfing, this exhilarating and exciting experience is perfect for all families who love the beach and everything about it.

This family session will begin at Long Line Surf School located in the National Trust Activity Village beside the National Trust Entrance to the beach where you will be greeted by your qualified surf instructors and lifeguards.

They will give you all your surfing equipment and a quick safety brief before you get changed into your wetsuit. Then you will be given all the knowledge and skills needed to catch your first wave on the safety of the sand before hitting the water to put the techniques into practice. You’ll have two hours to enjoy the waves with the instructor present at all times to give tips and encouragement ensuring everyone is in safe hands. Once you’ve had your fun on the water you will be taken back to dry off and share stories about your amazing family day out, after all the feeling of catching your first wave is so much better when you can share it with the ones you love!

This session is perfect for all ages from 6 years old, the whole family is sure to have a blast on the water!
