We believe that when kids fall in love with an outdoor sport, they fall in love with the outdoors. And kids who love their planet become ambassadors for taking care of it.
What is SUP/Surf Kids?
The SUP/SURF Kids programme is designed to teach kids SUP and surf skills, water safety & environmental education. We know what it’s like to fall in love with being in the ocean. And we know that, with a passion for SUP and surfing comes a responsibility to take care of our environment. Our vision is to create experiences that will enhance kids appreciation, respect & understanding for sustainable living. Our programme is run in an inclusive, non-competitive environment with a real focus on building self-esteem. We use games, drills & SUP/surf activities to ensure that kids walk away with vital water safety skills that will stay with them for life. We’ve taken environmental education out of the classroom, to the great outdoors, where we think it belongs.
How it works
The programme starts on a Monday morning with the choice of doing either 3 or 5 sessions on consecutive days. 3 sessions can be upgraded if they really enjoy it! At the end of each camp each participant receives a certificate with their achieved surfing level as well as a discount on Harlyn Surf School hoodies and robies.
Beginner Surf/SUP Programme – This is designed for novices and topics covered include beach safety, equipment, catching waves, environmental awareness and sustainability.
Improver Surf/SUP Programme – These groups are best for surfers that have done a series of 3- 5 lessons before and can stand confidently and consistently. We will aim to improve their overall surfing ability and confidence introducing them to paddling further out, catching unbroken waves, turning and discovering different type of equipment.
- 3 sessions – £110pp
- 5 sessions – £155pp
Here at SUPKids we’re committed to giving back – to the environment and to the communities we work with. We’re passionate about delivering programs to kids who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to do so. A % of every SUPKids School license fee goes towards our Giving Back programs – taking SUPKids to communities who need it most.
We’re also partnered with the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar who plant a mangrove tree for every SUPKid who takes our program.
We think the best way to protect our planet and have a positive impact is to team up with people who care as much as we do. SUPKids is partnered with some incredible NGO’s, non-profits & B Corps – all doing amazing work in the world.
