3* Surf kayak course on 9th / 10th April
report by Steve Bowens

4 kayakers from the south west just completed their 3* Surf course with Steve Bowens (Falmouth Marine School)


The group included: Mike McDonalad who is a students studying Marine Sport Science at Falmouth Marine School, Andrew Fowler from St Austell Canoe Club, Laura Williams and Martin Schneerberger who are from Elemental UK.

They all wanted to develop their skills in the surf so as they could feel confident to make the most of the fantastic beaches around Cornwall.

The courses run on the 9th & 10th April at Gwithian beach. The group met on Saturday morning over a mug of tea in the Sunset surf cafe to go through the 3* syllabus and set individual goals for the weekend. The goals ranged from improving top and bottom turns for Andrew to catching her first ever waves in a kayak for XXXXXXX


The group were blessed with warm sunshine and small perfectly formed surf for both days, everyone reached and superseded the goals they had set themselves and have set a new goal to take part in their first surf kayak contest this summer, so I can’t wait to see them all out there strutting their stuff.

Mike said “I am putting myself onto every course which I can through the marine school and pushing to gain as much as possible from the course. This weekend has really helped me to apply my board riding knowledge to kayak surfing and I loved every minute of it. I want to start to get out more in the surf in a kayak now and work on my action plan so as I can take part in the student surf kayak championships at the end of the month”.

Steve Bowens said: “The 3 star surf course is a fantastic introduction to the sport of surf kayaking, these guys progressed so much over the two days and they were catching wave after wave and beaming from ear to ear on the second day. Falmouth Marine School are again running the student surf kayak championships on the 27th April and we now have 3 more contestants who will be there showing off their skills. The student championships are very much an inclusive event to encourage as many student kayaks as possible to come along and have fun surfing as much as hard core competing. We run a friendly format with heats where everyone surfs at least twice and every time you surf it adds points for your university or college so even if you come last in each heat you are increasing your institutions points!”
