Schools Programmes

Watching students grow in confidence as they master the art of Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking and Paddleboarding on the sheltered waters of Grand Canal Dock is one of the great rewards of running Surfdock. Over the last 20 years we have introduced thousands of beginners to the water, and would like to extend an invite to your school to join us for a programme this year.

Surfdock offers certified watersports programmes customised to suit the schedule of a School, ranging from once-off School Outings to a modularised series of lessons run over a number of weeks. Our fully qualified instructors introduce children to watersports in a friendly and relaxed manner, imbuing confidence, fostering the ethic of teamwork and focussing on the personal development of students. Teachers are invited to take part in activities at no extra cost; however this is by no means mandatory!

Surfdock provides all necessary safety and watersports equipment, and is fully insured. Our modern Clubhouse offers classroom facilities for pre watersports briefings and hot showers to greet students returning from their activity. We believe that our superb safety record, excellence in teaching, competitive prices and central location offer the ingredients to a memorable and hassle free programme. So what are you waiting for?
