Surfing Lessons with St Saviours

Surfing Lessons at Shanklin A huge thanks from all who participated to Cathy Budden and the West Wight Landscape Partnership for organizing and putting on surfing lessons with ISurf and Chris Mannion. With the strong wind and swell Chris had decided that the best and safest place to surf on the Saturday afternoon was at Small Hope Beach in Shanklin. Chris initially takes them through the basics on the sand before they all enter the water and it wasn’t long before there were hoots and high fives with huge smiles all round.
