Finding new ways to surf

The Wednesday afternoon surfers may not be able to go to local beaches for their co-curricular activities this half term due to lockdown, but that hasn’t stopped them completely.

In their year bubbles, the young surfers are working on a carousel system on different surfing themed activities, with the most popular one being in the pool!

It may not be the beach but it is certainly a lot warmer and sheltered from the wet and grey weather.

As part of their training, the pupils swam up and down through hoops to simulate going through waves, practiced basic board paddling, how to roll over with the board, and how to stand and balance, putting their skills to the test in team races.

Meanwhile other surfing themed activities includes watching surfing films, designing their own surfboard and learning about surfing techniques and fitness.
