Riding the Waves: Surfing

Surfing has been shown to be a real benefit to our mental health. Watching waves, waiting for the right one, paddling, balancing and catching it demand your full attention. Being focused both in mind and body gives you a break from everything else. You will be supported and encouraged by DRLC tutors working closely with a fully qualified surfing instructor. These sessions are free of any pressure to succeed – you will work at your own pace and achieve your own goals. Overcoming fears, taking calculated risks and riding a wave can give you a genuine sense of achievement, while literally washing away negative feelings and the dirt and grime of life.

N.B. Please bring a towel, sun cream and a swim suit (wetsuits provided). There are changing facilities, toilets and a café.

Transport to Croyde: Tutors will provide pick-up and transport from Barnstaple bus/train station 12:30; or, we will travel as a group by Bus #21 stand G to Ruda Holiday Park leaving Barnstaple at 12:30.
