So you think Surf Skating isn’t for you? Well we’re here to tell you why it’s an important part of your surfing journey and a great way to exercise.

We know how hard it can sometimes be to fit a surf session in your busy routine. Matching free time, with suitable surfing conditions and all other life factors, it can start to feel like an impossible mission. Surf Skating can be a perfect alternative for those days, as it can be done in all weather and surf conditions. And yes, that goes for ALL our ladies - from those starting their surfing journey to our intermediate surfers.

No matter your age, experience or surfing skills, our introduction to Surf Skating program is for everyone and we’d love to prove it to you. Are you ready to give it a try with your Surf Getaways coach?

If you’re a surfer, this is the perfect complement to improve your skills

Our Surf Skating program is for women of all surfing abilities;

  • Whether you’re a total beginner and want to improve your balance and stance on your surfboard

  • If you’re starting to catch unbroken waves and wish to learn how to gain speed on the wave, or

  • You are already doing maneuvers on green faced waves and want to improve your technique for specific turns

If you are or have been attending our Surf Clinics, this program is a great addition to your training that will allow you to progress from wherever you are in your surfing journey. The coaches are either the same ones or can communicate with your surf coach to focus on specific and personalised training based on your progression. So if you’re ready to take the next step, our all female, 4 week Surf Skating program is the next best option for you!

If you’re NOT a surfer, Surf Skating is a great activity and new skill to learn

We have created a safe and supportive environment for those of you who want to take up a new hobby and wish to progress with other women in your community. It is a great way to learn a new skill in a positive female focused environment – rest assured you won’t make a fool of yourself! The locations we’ve chosen are on flat ground - no, we’re not sending you to a skate park and expecting you to go down ramps! We believe It’s important to focus on technique in a controlled environment where our qualified female coaches will quite literally hold your hand until you are comfortable to do it on your own.
