Skill Levels

nudie SurfGroms features 5 distinct skill levels in surfing and 3 distinct skills levels in, each level with its own set of objectives and goals. Each level must be achieved and signed off by your coach before moving onto the next.

Level 1 is designed for complete beginners as an introduction to surfing and the ocean environment.  At the other end of the scale, Level 5 is conducted in 3-4ft conditions, and in which participants must demonstrate a competency in linking manoeuvres together on the open face of a wave and demonstrating a thorough understanding of ocean awareness and beach safety.

Surf Safety

Throughout the nudie Surf Groms program and each of the 5 skill levels, there is a significant focus on Ocean Awareness and Beach Safety.

Surf conditions, etiquette, first aid, and basic surf rescue skills have all been incorporated into the nudie SurfGroms program.  Before any nudie SurfGrom receives a completion certificate, they must have successfully demonstrated all of the relevant ocean awareness and beach safety skills for each level.

Every nudie Surf Grom will receive a
