The Gutsy Girls Surf Club is perfect for complete beginners through to intermediate surfers. Our experienced instructors will tailor your coaching to ensure every time you surf with us you’re progressing.

Never surfed before? No problem, you’ll be in great company. We’ll start you off with the very basics, build your water confidence and get you standing in no time.

Surfed before? Brilliant! We can’t wait to help you improve. Our aim with the Gutsy Girls Surf Club is to build a fun community that connects you with other women who are keen to surf but don’t want to go solo.

Our lessons take place once a month, the other weekends we’ve secured exclusive board hire for you.

If you’ve never surfed before, we’ll start with the basics. First we’ll learn how to catch a wave, choosing the right moment to jump on our boards and let it push us to the shore.

We’ll then learn 3 different techniques to get us to our feet, choosing the one that works best for you.

Our instructor will be in the water with you, giving feedback on your waves and showing you adjustments to get you up and riding!
