Learn to surf and SUP

iSurf is committed to encouraging more young people to get involved in surf and SUP activities to increase awareness and develop a greater level of appreciation of the beach ecology. iSurf regularly works with schools and colleges, both locally and nationally to achieve this vision by providing practical lessons on the water in a safe environment.

Surfing and/or stand up paddle boarding (SUP) are fun and exciting activities that can help children and young adults gain confidence, build relationships and enjoy a sense of challenge and achievement outside of the classroom setting. All iSurf’s instructors are fully qualified professional surf coaches who ensure safety is at the forefront of everything they do.

Ride the waves

Most surf or SUP lessons last either 90 minutes or 3 hours but we can be flexible to fit in with your own needs and requirements. During the lesson students will undoubtedly enjoy a range of activities from learning to paddle, safety in and around the water, and standing up on a board riding the waves! As the Isle of Wight’s only mobile surf school we can travel to the prime beach locations on the island to ensure we take full advantage of the best weather and surf conditions for the day; we can guarantee your school group a fun, inspirational and very wet time with us – wherever we end up!

Get kitted out

All children, (and any teachers or parents who want to join in!) will be kitted up with an Xcel wetsuit to ensure you stay warm during the lesson. iSurf always puts the safety of all students as paramount so uses Alder’s range of soft surfboards. These boards are stable and float well, and are really flexible and forgiving with soft fins and main body to help avoid any injuries, without compromising on fun.
