CONFIRMATION

Thank you for your interest in coming to stay & experience a week surfing with us!

Our office hours are 9am - 5pm GMT and we aim to respond to all inquires within 4 hours

 

 

In the mean time here's some useful information about a trip with us:

Our packages run from Saturday to Saturday

We know surf holidays are the best they can be when there’s a solid start and finish date to the groups trip for the week. You can arrive a day earlier (Friday) and leave a day later (Sunday) if there’s flight options for these days that are more convenient for you.

 

We’re serious about surf coaching!

Don’t worry you’re not signing yourself up for a week of 6am starts and intensive paddling drills! We just want to provide the best possible weeks coaching you’ll ever receive, and that includes highly qualified and dedicated surf coaches, a tailored surf coaching plan for the week just for you, plenty of video coaching and a variety of modern techniques to make you a better and more knowledgeable surfer.

 

Our Surf Lodge 

We’re not your normal surf camp. We’ve upgraded our accommodation & food offering from previous years and are gradually updating our website to reflect all the changes. Forget cramped dorms & squashed private rooms and think sleek, stylish & airy boutique hotel. More info & pictures on our new lodge plus any of our current deals can be found by following us on Facebook & Instagram.

 

What’s included and pricing   

Virtually everything you’ll need is included, apart from some spending money for two evenings out in our local town of Lagos and airport transfers. A full list of inclusions and prices are featured at the bottom of the package you are interested in on our website.

 

And finally….

We know booking holidays can be tricky and it’s sometimes nice to speak to a real person. 7 days a week from 9am-5pm we have a knowledgeable team available if you need to chat with us at any point.

ADVANCED COACHING WEEKS

Do you share our passion and dedication to surfing? Want to build your repertoire? This is our intensive, tailored surf course. Assess your current abilities, set new goals and advance with the fundamentals of good surfing.

WHO'S THE WEEK FOR?

A week of tailored sessions for ambitious intermediate and advanced surfers looking to master new goals. Find and catch the best possible waves in beautiful locations whilst receiving expert coaching. Anyone joining must be able to surf unbroken waves, go right and left and demonstrate basic turns in waves up to shoulder high.

 

ABOUT THE WEEK

We want you to get the best possible sessions whether that’s at sunrise or sunset, and at river mouth, point or beach breaks. At this level sessions will be tailored to target your individual personal goals. After an assessment on the first day each surfer will receive a personal development plan for the week. Your water skills will be fast tracked with a combination of video coaching supported by practical theory, forecasting, location selection and equipment analysis sessions.

“TOTALLY FIRST CLASS COURSE”

"I’d been stuck in a rut with my technique for the past year. Jan’s video coaching was totally priceless, giving me visibility, advice and a plan to improve. What can I say… A fantastic course, great accommodation and amazing trip all round!"
