Surfing GB aims to promote safe and successful surf coaching which encourages progression for all levels of ability. It has a register of all surf schools and coaches who meet a set of requirements embracing high standards of operation and safety
The purpose of the British Surf School Scheme is to provide a clear set of rules for the safe and successful management of surfing activity on British beaches.This enables a surf school to comply with current national, regional and local beach, recreational and sport legislation. It gives clear Surfing GB guidance for UK schools to organise and manage “best practices” for coaching of surfing that is seen as consistent, coherent and comprehensive across all levels.
As the National Governing Body- designate for Surfing in Great Britain, SGB issues clear guidance to Local Authorities and Beach Owners that they should only accept surf schools and surf coaches who are registered with Surfing GB.
The overall aim of the scheme is to ensure that all surf school customers receive the highest standard of safety and success in their surfing lessons
The surf schools that are accepted and registered on this scheme are the only schools that can be advertised as a British Surf School and appear as such on the Surfing GB website
All British Surf Schools are graded as either: Recreational, Performance, Academy, and Centre of Excellence. and this is dependent upon:
* The qualifications of the coaches employed
* The level of the surf coaching programs offered (ie beginners, advanced)
* The physical equipment and practical resources available for customers learning
