Undeterred with the onset of winter we are still seeing the rare flat days still busy with Coasteering groups booking in, with the perfect location only a short drive from our HQ at Cayton Bay flat conditions are no longer a problem for our Surf school come Activity centre!
Last weekend saw adrenalin junkies Colin Jacobs and friends score the perfect tides for both exploring the cave systems and getting the maximum altitude jumps on offer. No strangers to outward bounds activities and previous Surf school customers the lads picked the perfect day for another one of their "Silly Sundays" and were certainly not disappointed with the session, they even brought along a waterproof camera to record the mornings events...
With on the fly instruction we don't bombard you with info at the start, we aim to keep the fun and learning both safe and informative with mini briefings before each section detailing what to expect and how to overcome obstacles with different routes to get from A to B with levels to suit all abilities. We can also tailor routes to suit individual groups with sessions suitable for families and Stag / Hen do's alike. This can even be done throughout a session as we get a feel for the groups dynamics and what they are enjoying most.
There's always options along our routes, you can swim, walk, climb or jump (with a variety of techniques) to get around any section ensuring you are never forced to jump from a position you are not happy with. All of our jumps are staggered too allowing customers to prefect their technique and get additional advice should they need it before advancing to the bigger and still optional jumps!
Colins group were straight in at the deep end and took to the water and jumps with ease perfecting both the Super Man dive (a sea level based jump used to safely enter shallow water), the Scissor Jump (a low level jump designed again to minimise the depth of travel with both arms and legs spread wide) and finally the Pencil Jump from varying and increasing heights with the feet together and arms tight across the chest to avoid and injuries.
Although we tend to see more consistent surf through the winter months Coasteering is still a viable option for those flat days where the surf decides not to show.
if you would like any more info or would like to pre-book a session for either this winter or next season please feel free to get in touch and we will be happy to help, advise and get you booked in!
