After the recent success of a handful of Newquay-based longboarders at the Relentless Boardmasters 2011, who recently qualified to compete in the World Championship Longboarding Tour, Errant Surf Holidays is running a Longboard Coaching Weekend at Errant’s newly extended surf coaching centre in Newquay on 17th and 18th September 2011, enabling novice Longboarders to hone their skills with one of the UK’s best!
Chris Thomson who is one of the UK’s top surf coaches will be running the two-day course at the Errant Surf Training Centre in Newquay, which has recently been kitted out with top of the range video coaching equipment and is offering this unique opportunity to longboarders’ on a first come, first serve basis.
Chris has taught specialist coaching workshops around the world for over ten years. He is the owner and Director of Errant Surf Holidays and is the Director of the Ground Swell CIC Foundation, which provides career opportunities for aspiring young surfers.
With an obvious passion for helping bring out the untapped potential of surfers of all abilities, Chris aims to take longboarders’ on the course to the next level. There is also the option of accommodation that will be exclusive for the course attendee’s, thus encouraging peer-to-peer engagement, as well as an obvious opportunity of an exhilarating break away from the stresses and strains of modern life!
Chris says: “The course in September has been inspired by a number of Moroccan longboard coaching weeks that I have run and with the growing number of novice longboarders in the lineup these days, it just makes sense to offer the training right here in the surfing capital of the UK. The course is laid back but very informative and we aim to provide a solid coaching plan for surfers on the course for the coming six to eight months.”
The course will start at 10am on Saturday 17th September at Errant Surf School, Newquay and will finish at 4pm Sunday 18th. The price is £149 per person with accommodation or £99 without accommodation. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org/ or call 01637 851403 for more information.
