The 2 day course is led by Surf South West’s  Level 3 Training/Assessor coach John Ellis. The course is internationally recognised and covers all aspects of coaching at beginner level and leads to the Level 1 qualification which allows coaches to work at surf schools and is recognised in many parts of the world. It is a basic requirement for surf coaches working at surf schools, surf clubs and schools and leads to the more advanced Level 2 qualification. (See below for Level 2 courses)

The course is held from our surf school on Croyde Beach. See accommodation options in Croyde here.

Please note that in addition to attendance of the course and satisfactory completion of course tasks, candidates will also have to demonstrate a basic level of personal surfing competence. This is assessed during the course where candidates will be expected to paddle out (generally in 2 to 3 feet surf) and catch unbroken waves demonstrating ability to ride lefts and rights with control and confidence

To gain the Surfing England qualification you will also require a current Beach Life Saving Qualification – this can be obtained before or after the course. We offer a discount rate of £515 for booking the Beach Lifeguard course and Surf Instructor course together.

Candidates are also required to complete twenty hours post course coaching experience with a surf school – this can be completed with us or elsewhere.

Successful completion of the course also includes 1 year’s free surf coach affiliation with Surfing England worth £45.

Surfing England/International Surfing Association Level 2 Surf Instructor Qualification

The course is open to existing qualified and experienced coaches, who hold the Surfing England/ISA Level 1 Surf Coaching Accreditation or an equivalent surfing qualification.  The Level 2 Coaching course takes the coach beyond teaching beginner through intermediate surfing towards advanced level coaching and a greater understanding of competitive surfing. By gaining the Level 2 accreditation it also opens up greater opportunities to become involved in coaching at a high performance level and offers more work options within the surf coaching industry.

Thanks so much for the Level 1 instructor course last week. It was professionally run and I learned so much over the two days. Cannot wait to complete my hours and start working as an instructor!
