This level 1 course is the minimum requirement to become a surf instructor for an Surfing England/ISA approved surf school. The course is open at anyone over the age of 16 with a couple of years’ experience surfing and a genuine desire to teach others.

The course content covers a wide range of surf education including remaining safe whilst surfing, specific surfing techniques as well as a range of group management and essential coaching techniques for you to use within your new career.

Throughout this course you will be assessed, in both classroom based and practical sessions, on a variety of criteria including surf venue analysis, group assessment and lesson planning, lesson delivery, practical surfing skills and your own self-assessment.

By the end of the course, you will be expected to demonstrate that your personal surfing prowess is of an acceptable standard along with an assessment of your soft skills in terms of delivering lessons to your peers within the course. You’ll also be expected to show your competency in coaching novice to intermediate level surfers by logging 20 hours of practical tuition with a recognised ISA and Surfing England surf school such as ourselves. As part of this course, you will also be given your Surfing England membership, which is a formal requirement needed to work in surf schools here in the UK.
