This luxury surf course is designed for aspiring
beginners (looking to progress to Intermediate) surfers, who have had surf lessons, can catch white water waves and want to take their surfing to the next stage (i.e. catch green waves, learn how to turn, paddle out and improve technique)
It is aimed to equip surfers with the correct and proven surfing techniques and skills with key learning tools, training and rehabilitation methods, to help speed up the surfing learning curve. Alan will help you approach each surf session with attainable goals and techniques that will keep you improving and you can continue to put into practice after the course.
There’ll be 2 sessions a day (aprox’ 2.5hrs) and you'll get '1 to 1' video analysis after each sessions, then you'll hit the waves again to put into practice what you've learned back in the water!
Along with surfing focused warm up exercises and stretches, there'll also be plenty of time to discuss ‘all things surfing’ with Alan over these few days, from learning how to read the waves, to equipment advice and best places to surf!
Curated by Alan from decades of practical surfing and life as a competing professional surfer on the World Qualifying Series.
You must be able to catch and ride competently white water waves standing up.
The Destination & more...
Your luxury Surf Coaching break in Cornwall will be spent in the beautiful Yurt Village at The Park, Mawgan Porth, surrounded by lush greenery, just a short walk to the golden beaches of Cornwall. Sleep under the stars in our luxury yurts, with a comfortable bed and rustic log burner.
You'll be prepared 3 healthy daily meals by our chef, to nourish and energise the body before and after a surf. We will dine either by the warm fire pit or inside the cosy cottage kitchen.
After a freshly prepared breakfast, 3 x British Champion Professional Surfer Alan Stokes will take you to one of his favourite spots, Mawgan Porth beach (a remote surf spot and hidden gem) to hit the waves. Alan considers this beach as one of the best surf beaches in Cornwall and refers to it as a "swell magnet". He says this beach "draws in the swell and creates an energy in the waves to deliver the perfect high performance wave for progressing in your surfing" and is why Alan chooses to coach surfing here, because it is ideal for aspiring beginners (to intermediates)
We'll start the day on the beach warming up with an energetic yoga flow to get you ready for hitting the waves. Don't worry if you have never done yoga before, because Amanda will guide you through the warm up...and yoga is the perfect compliment to surfing...just ask Alan, who loves his yoga!

"Having time in the water with a surfer as talented as Alan Stokes is an incredible experience. Being taught theory as well as the practical, really advanced my surfing ability and knowledge. Video analysis really works and helps you break those bad habits and progress quicker. I'd highly recccomend coaching with Alan...it is a rare oppotunity to learn from a pro!"
