Escaping for a surf holiday is something we all dream of when surfing has taken hold of us. When we're first starting out, learning to surf, and improving on our basis skills, planning when the best time to go on a surf holiday can make a big difference. Really maximize your learn to surf holidays by combining pro surf contests, uncrowded waves, and the best seasonal weather. Here are our top tips for when and where to go:
- 1- September Sessions
- 2- February Pick Me Up
The depths of winter get us all down, especially after the over indulgence of Christmas, so an early present to self is knowing that you'll be going away in one of the most depressing months: February. Head to Europe's answer to Hawaii- the Canarian Island of Fuerteventura or Lanzarote. With average temperatures of 18 C + during the winter months, hot sunny days reaching the high 20s and very consistent surf, it is one of the best surf spots to cure the winter blues.
- 3- Autumn Wind Up/Down
- 4- Bring Summer Early
Sometimes you just can't get a full week away from work, but a sneaky weekend away in May or June can be just what is needed. So think about maximizing a weekend or two- especially if it isn't a bank holiday for even clearer line ups. Keep the weekend break as simple as possible- and drive there if you can. Think of going to Lahinch or Bundoran for very beginner friendly beaches, or taking a short flight to Biarritz for some early French sun.
