We offer Clubs and Courses for all Ages

N E Surf offers courses for all ages. We find that surfing with others of a similar age and experience level really maximises fun and progression. This is why we encourage those wanting to continue to progress to join one of our clubs.

We have a variety of weekly clubs aimed at different ages and abilities. Our kids club and tiny kids club run daily throughout the school holidays.

Adult Surf Club

Adult surf club is a weekly lesson aimed at adults who want to continue to improve their surf skills and have fun in a supportive group of likeminded people. Surf club is targeted at improver and intermediate surfers who are aiming to progress from white to green waves or improve their technique, style and manoeuvres. For beginners we have an intro session running alongside the club session. If you would like to join a weekly group please message us directly.

What to expect and what you will need to take part

Location – Bamburgh Beach (unless, due to conditions, we contact you to say otherwise).

  • Duration – 2 hours from meet time to lesson finishing. Allow a further 10 minutes to change at the end.
  • What to bring – all equipment is provided. We have quality wetsuits in a wide range of sizes and boots, gloves and hoods available in the colder months. If you would like to wear your own wetsuit, that’s fine, but we recommend a good quality (5.4mm), which is  what we use most of the time for the conditions in Northumberland. So if yours is thinner, consider using one of ours.
  • What the lesson entails – all of our lessons include a warm up and safety brief of the days conditions. Our beginner and improver lessons break all the stages of surfing down into manageable chunks, including both beach theory and lots of practice in the water. Intermediate and advanced lessons are tailored to the goals and needs of the surfers. They include both beach theory and always lots of time in the water. Whatever the session, you’ll come out feeling like you’ve really earned that hot drink and Bamburgh Banger butty (or whatever else might be on the menu!).

Structured Coaching

At NE surf the quality of our lessons is of paramount importance to us. We believe that structured coaching leads to better surfing, so we group our lessons on ability to ensure that everyone receives appropriate and tailored instruction.

If you aren’t sure of your level, please give us a call or a text before booking and our experienced instructors can guide you towards the right one for you.

We operate our group lessons at a maximum ratio of 1 instructor to 6 surfers, lower than the industry standard. We do this to ensure that our lessons are safe and the coaching effective.

What they say about us

John M

“My kids aged 16 and 12 loved their 2hr beginner surf lesson yesterday at Bamburgh beach, they were absolutely buzzing and can’t wait to do it again. Big shout out to Chris he was fantastic with all the kids, full of energy, put them at ease straight away and had them completely engaged.

Well organised, easy to book, good communication as to what beach etc. the meeting point was. Good price.

Joanne B - Leicestershire

I would definitely recommend NE surf school for anyone who is interested in learning to surf. Emilyis a brilliant instructor, really patient and attentive, and knows exactly how to try and correct anything that I’m doing wrong.

Even in the group lessons she is able to watch and help everyone in the group equally. It’s so great to know that she wants me to progress and improve as much as I want to myself, and she makes the lessons so fun and relaxed.

Can’t wait for more lessons and to hopefully keep improving

Chez E

“A brilliant surf lesson with Chris. I have surfed a bit before but Chris was amazing at recapping and helping me to progress wile being super enthusiastic and attentive to the whole group.

I went on my own to a group lesson and had a great time – plus we had an extra seal up friend! The lesson was at the beautiful Bamburgh and we had beautiful waves! Highly recommend.”

Emma Z

I had a private surf lesson with Chris at Bamburgh and it was really great. I’ve had a lot of lessons in lots of different places, and he was by far one of the most knowledgable instructors.

It was easy to see an improvement in my surfing by following his tips and guidance. Would really recommend!
