Surf the Wight

with Eddies Surf Academy

The Isle of Wight is now in an elite group of regions, being only the 6th region in the UK to be awarded the UNESCO accolade. The Island has a fantastic variety of beaches, rivers and estuaries making it the perfect destination for water sports enthusiasts and for those wanting to experience something unique and memorable.

Learn to Surf and Stand-up Paddleboard or improve your current skill level with the Isle of Wight’s fully equipped Premium Mobile Surf Academy, Eddies Surf Academy.

Originally a sport reserved only for Hawaiian royalty, surfing is thought to have made its way to Hawaii from the Polynesian Islands around the middle of the 18th Century but, it is likely been around since the 6th Century.

Surfing has come a long way since it first gained popularity as a lifestyle symbol in the mid 1800's, and you too can enjoy the sport of royalty on a beautiful Island.

All lessons are taught by Eddie from Eddie’s Surf Academy. He is originally from South Africa, as a South African Team Member he surfed competitively on a national and international level. He competed in many events over the years and gained a wealth of experience and knowledge.

Eddies Surf Academy offer priority booking for our Royal Hotel guests and an extra 30mins of surfing lesson time
