Female SURF CAMPS IN STUNNING LOCATIONS

 
 
 

Our camps

The camps we run are pretty special. We invite you into our world; immersed in British surf culture. It’s a family operation; we use our motorhome as a mobile base for the lessons. Our weekends are relaxed but very focussed on developing our guests as surfers. The camps include invaluable photo feedback sessions with photos to take home from the awesome Tom Bing. Surf safety, chart reading and etiquette sessions are held on the evenings alongside inspirational short films . The aim is to provide you with the knowledge, skills and stoke to become independent surfers in the ocean.

Our camps run during the Spring and Autumn in the North East, East Yorkshire and beyond. They are aimed at either beginners or intermediate surfers and are limited to small groups of six women. This ensures personalised teaching and support during sessions, maximising surfing progression for all guests. 
 

The camps vary in terms of accommodation; some are in Safari Tents, some involve camping and bringing your own tent or arranging your own accommodation and others are in a large guest house.


Yonder is a fully insured and ASI accredited surf school. All tuition is by Sally McGee, ASI accredited surf coach and RLSS Lifeguard.

SCARBOROUGH BEGINNER CAMP

SEPTEMBER 13TH, 14TH & 15TH

All food and accommodation provided

£385

After our incredibly successful Scarborough Surf Camp last year I am really excited to announce our 2019 camp!

This camp is for beginners and those who have surfed before but are wanting to build on their experience. The teaching is super focussed on each individual in order to ensure progression for everyone.

The camp will be limited to six spaces in order to ensure maximum input for each guest.

Scarborough is a place I hold very dear as it is where I learnt to surf. There are a number of beaches in the area to chose from depending on conditions and it's a great place to start your surfing journey. It's also probably a lot closer by train than you think. We love the East Coast!

The accommodation for the weekend is in really cool Safari tents on a quiet campsite just out of town, conveniently located for the surf.

We will take guests to the best break on each day and provide tuition and feedback in order to get everyone feeling confident in the water and flourishing as a surfer. The camp will be a great opportunity to surf with like-minded women in a safe and supportive environment.

No experience is necessary. We will be starting from the beginning with Swell foam boards and progressing at everybody’s own pace. With the small group sizes, tuition is personalised to match everybody’s confidence and ability levels. If you have had lessons before and would like to try one of our Yonder hard boards for the first time or bring your own along then this camp is also perfect for you.

Guests arrive at the camp Friday late afternoon/evening ready for a surf lesson on the Saturday morning.

We provide -

  • All meals for the Saturday and Sunday with breakfast on the Monday

  • Transport to the surf

  • All equipment if needed - you can bring your own of course.

  • Two two hour surf sessions per day (Sat, Sunday) and a morning session on the Monday.

  • Surf forecasting and theory tips

  • Photo feedback sessions - absolutely essential to help build confidence and improve. We are really lucky to have the talented @tombingphoto on board to document the weekend and help give specific feedback about your surfing.

  • Surf movie night

  • Beautiful photos for you to keep at no extra cost

  • Yonder goodies & a pair of Stance Socks

All lessons are taught by Sally McGee, experienced surfer and ASI Accredited surf coach.

The camp site fee is included in the price.

The tents are super warm with heaters and electricity and proper beds! There is a double bed option and bunk beds so to make it fair it's an extra 20 pound supplement for the double bed but you'll need to get in early - first to email me gets the bed! The bunk beds are great and super comfy though! The campsite has hot showers and nice clean toilet facilities. Yonder is a family run business, expect good vibes, hearty veggie food and a lovely trip with likeminded ladies.

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on info@surfyonder.com.

  • Important Disclaimer - Unfortunately, due to the very nature dependent reality of surfing we cannot necessarily guarantee good surf conditions. We always run our camps in areas that are more consistent and during the more consistent swell months in order to increase the potential for good conditions. If the surf is flat we will hire Stand Up Paddle boards and explore the coastline and sea swim (gentle sea swim!) at Flamborough head!

  • Refunds are not available unless we are able to find a replacement well in time. Tickets go live next Monday 10th at 8pm

Due to popular demand we are pleased to be offering a Scarborough Improvers Surf Camp! The camp will be limited to six spaces in order to ensure maximum input for each guest.

*An improver is classed as someone who has already had a number of lessons or who has tried surfing a number of times but is now wanting to progress on to the next level, they are starting to catch green waves, turn and wanting to know about more detailed surf forecasting. If you are an absolute beginner and have never tried surfing before I recommend the beginner camp in September.

Scarborough is a place I hold very dear as it is where I learnt to surf. There are a number of quality beach breaks in the area to chose from depending on conditions.

FAQS

Do I need to bring a wetsuit? We will provide all the wetsuits and surfboards needed for the camp however feel free to bring your own if you would prefer. Typically, at this time of year (Nov/Dec) you will need a 4/3 mm wetsuit.

How warm will it be? The sun will be shining (normally!) and it will be gloriously warm however mornings and evenings do cool off so bring warmer clothes too! The sea temperature is also a little cooler so wetsuits are required.

How many people per apartment? We have hired out three apartments, there are options for single or twin beds in each room. There will be two or three people in each apartment.

When are we expected to arrive? The camp runs Saturday to Saturday, ideally all guests will arrive on the Saturday, ready to either surf that afternoon or ready for a Sunday Morning session.

What meals are included? All meals are included, a buffet breakfast, sandwich, snacks and fruit for lunch and on the evening we will be choosing each night from a number of the local restaurants, eating local Moroccan cuisine.

Soft drinks and alcohol? Soft drinks and alcohol are not included in the cost of the camp, these are additional extras that you will need to buy yourself. As a muslim country there are no shops in the village providing alcohol, you are permitted to drink we just recommend buying it at the airport.

GEMMA HARRISON, VC LONDON



Yonder is the PERFECT way for a beginner to learn to surf and gain confidence in the water. Sally knows so much and delivers the lessons in a relaxed, friendly and informative manner. Couldn't ask for a better instructor! The boards and wetsuits provided were of great quality, you won't even feel the chill of the North Sea!! If you already know the basics go and see Sally and learn how to progress to the next level. She is amazing 👌👌👌

Helen Entwistle



Just returned home from a surf camp in Tynemouth. Such a brilliant weekend! Sally is a great instructor! Encouraging, fun, open and warm! Full of hospitality and acceptance of all abilities. Great tips on different ways to enjoy the surf! Would 100% recommend and fully plan on heading back for another go!!! Thanks Sally (& Tom!) x
