Here at Discovery we’ve started the year by hitting the ground running, planning lots of exciting things for 2020 - the year where surfing becomes an Olympic sport, so it’s never been a better time to give it go.
We’ve recently launched our new website, so you’ll find all the information about courses and all our news on there. The Surf School is open, so we’re available for lessons and kit hire most days. If you’re keen to pop in, just give us a call before you head down to the beach as the shop is open on ad hoc basis until we’re firmly in the swing of the Spring/Summer. Although we will be open throughout the February Half Term for lessons and hire.
Did you see our starling murmuration video online or on the TV? The stunning footage was captured by Martin last week and has subsequently been used by different news websites and BBC Spotlight (twice!) To view it for yourself, please check it out here.
Surf Club has started the year strongly with many keen and talented children hitting the waves with us for the last couple of Saturdays. It’s great to see so many dedicated young surfers donning the layers of neoprene to join friends and work on their surf skills while having loads of fun. We’re also looking forward to working with all of our special groups again this year, like the Wave Project, who will be surfing with us come April.
We’ve generally got beginner Group lessons available on Saturdays, and will also be trying to get our volunteered ’silver surfers’ out there too - so if you’re over 60 and keen to get in with likeminded people join our mailing list and we’ll plan a lesson in the Springtime. We've also created new Fast Track surf courses which are already proving to be a popular option - please see our website for more details.
