Overview & description
Saltburn Surf School is the only surf school approved by Surfing Great Britain and the International Surfing Association on the East Coast. First established in 1983, we have years of experience in providing professional coaching and a safe environment to learn. Our affiliation with the sport’s governing body keeps us up to date on new coaching techniques. All our coaches are qualified in surf instructing, lifeguarding and first aid. All members of staff are DBS checked.
We are located right on the Lower Promenade, so access to the beach is less than 10m. Saltburn Beach is one of the most consistent beaches for surf along our coastline, and is a great beach break. Surfable through all stages of the tide with a good variety of conditions to suit all abilities. If it’s flat here, it’s flat everywhere on our coastline.
You can park for free on the Top Promenade, changing rooms are available. We also provide free surf forecasts on our website and are always available to offer advice on the safest place to surf on the day.
We provide surf lessons and stand up paddle board lessons for individuals (one to one) or for groups. You can bring your own group or be added to an existing group lesson.
Lessons can be arranged at any time, but will only take place from April – October (inclusive). We run sessions at 10am and 2pm which you can be added to (subject to availability).We will be able to conduct evening lessons during the months of May, June, July, August and September as permitted by daylight hours. Flexibility is our aim and we hope to fit into your schedule.
Our equipment is second to none, making sure that you are warm and comfortable so you can enjoy the activity you are taking part in. All equipment surfboards, wetsuits, body boards and stand up paddle boards are available for hire outside of the lessons for people who have surfed before.
On our website you’ll find information on all the activities we have to offer including our Junior Surf Academy’s with prices and dates.
