School Overview

Embark on your surfing journey with us! Here’s what you need to know:

  • Schedule:  9:30 AM to 1:30 PM, offering two sessions per day. We adjust session times to suit beginners, typically around low tide. Since tides change daily, please contact us to check availability on your preferred date.We take our regular day off on every Thursday, except for national holidays.
    From June to early August, we also offer afternoon courses from 4:00 PM onwards, perfect for those who want to avoid the midday sun.
  • Location: Our school is located just a 2-minute walk from Enoshima Aquarium. Depending on ocean conditions, we may occasionally relocate to Katase Higashihama or the Skate Park area, accessible by bicycle.
  • Safety: Your safety is our top priority. We never allow one instructor to supervise groups of 5 or 10 individuals. Basic prerequisites include the ability to swim (or float) and ensuring adequate sleep the night before.
  • Courses: Whether you’re a beginner or seeking to level up, we have courses tailored for you. We also offer Kids and Junior Development Courses for youngsters aged 11-14.
  • Facilities: Enjoy complimentary amenities such as hot water showers and bicycle rentals. For women, indoor showers are available with shampoo, conditioner, soap, and hairdryers.
