Surfing and Paddleboarding, How to describe them? I’m not sure, and even if I could, I wouldn’t do them justice. When you stand up on your board for the first time it’s the uncontrollable, throw your hands in the air and scream feeling, if only for a few seconds!!

So whether you’re 8 or 88, the only way you can really understand what all the fuss is about is to get some gear and get wet!! That’s where we can help. Teaching people to surf and SUP isn’t just a job to us, it’s our passion!

Surf Steps is based on Bournemouth beach, 500m from Boscombe pier. We’re the only Surfing England Centre of Excellence based on the South Coast, and the closest to London. All of our instructors are accredited professional instructors with many years of experience. We offer a selection of different courses to suit all levels and requirements and we pride ourselves on running sessions which are professional but great fun, safe but exciting!!
