Courses and Club Sessions
We run courses throughout the year, one session per-week for six weeks. The youngsters which join us often haven’t surfed before and can be anxious. It’s important that we are all ready and suited up when they arrive. So please arrive with plenty of time to get your wetsuit on. We also want to make sure that no one is ever alone with a young person. So please stay with the surf instructors and other volunteers in a group. We are a team in and out of the water. It really helps if you can commit to all six weeks as you get to see the young people grow and develop which is very rewarding. Quite often our young people form close bonds with the volunteers, therefore consistency in your commitment to the six weeks is very important.
At the end of our courses our young people can join our Surf Club. The sessions are great fun and you have a mix of faces from those who have just finished a course to those who finished a course in 2015. Surf Club is a fantastic element of the Wave Project and is particularly good for those volunteers who are not able to commit to the full six week course but still want to help and support young people in the water.
