Surf-Fitness in South Devon

A long weekend of surfing, open-water swimming, trail running and beach fitness – as featured on The Telegraph’s website. Very different from our TriCamps but the same approach to excellent coaching. Perfect for both fitness enthusiasts or triathletes looking for something different in the off-season.

The core of the weekend are the surfing lessons on Saturday and Sunday. No prior surfing experience is necessary and experienced coach Mark Capps of Discovery Surf School will ensure that everyone progresses as quickly as possible.

The schedule for the weekend is flexible as we need to work around tides and weather conditions but will also include an Open Water swim session with a dedicated coach, trail running and beach fitness sessions with the local Life Guard Coach.

Optional additional sessions include advanced surf-coaching for experienced surfers and water entry / exit sessions for triathletes looking at ocean-based races

Bed and Breakfast accommodation is at the Whitehouse in Chillington. Dinner on Friday is at  Rockfish in Dartmouth and on Saturday is at the Beach House, South Milton.
