About us

Natural Surf School has been running surf lessons on East Wittering Beach since 2017. We are the only centre in the area that specializes in surfing! All our instructors are fully qualified beach lifeguards and international surf association level 1 or 2 coaches. Also, Emile, the founder of Natural Surf School and our ISA Level 2 Head Coach won ‘Surf Coach of the Year 2018’ at the Wave Project awards!

If we aren’t in the sea teaching, we’ll probably be in the sea surfing, swimming, paddle boarding, kitesurfing or windsurfing! And if we aren’t in the sea then you’ll probably spot us cruising around on our skateboards looking for a good place to set up our slackline!

Where are we?

East Wittering beach at high tide is a shingle beach but once the tide goes out, its slick, flat sand is revealed, the kind of sand that’s perfect for building sandcastles! The low gradient and lack of hazards such as rips and rocks is what makes this beach so user friendly! No...we don’t always get swell like they do down in Cornwall, BUT that’s why it’s so good for learning! Close to shore we have gentle forgiving waves that are ideal for learning to surf. Paddle or walk further out and you should find swell that’s perfect for the intermediate surfer wanting to start catching green unbroken waves.

Come winter we get waves for all levels, beginner all the way to advanced! The beach is held together with groynes that, once exposed on the low tide are the perfect place to go looking for our friendly marine life such as crabs and little fishies!  Come for an early morning or evening surf and you’ll have the opportunity to witness the truly incredible sunrises and sunsets our beach has to offer.
