SSS Surf School founder Stu, talks about his idea for a surf school with a difference….
Where did the idea for SSS come from?
My vision of owning a surf school in Newquay, that can travel to any location and provide custom boards for all skill levels of riders from beginner to pro, came to me early last year, when I first met Ben Skinner who shaped a board to my exact needs.
What was your vision for this new style of surf school?
SSS would be a surf school that would provide students and seasoned riders with the ultimate surf arsenal giving them the best learning curve available with uniquely designed boards by pro surfers to help them reach their full riding potential. My surfboard selection ranges from high-performance softop boards (for learners) to our full carbon boards with Thunderbolt technologies (for intermediates and skilled surfers) giving the ultimate surding experience… this technology, it’s mind blowing and there is nothing else like it on the market!
What else does SSS offer, that’s different to other surf schools?
We offer the best of the best in surf equipment for our surf lessons in Newquay and Cornwall, I’m extremely proud that we’ve teamed up with O’Neill which allows us to offer our students the best wetsuits the surf industry has to offer and keeps them warm 365 days a year, because the surf doesn’t stop in the winter, it gets better! We want our students to get the best from their surf lesson and have the most enjoyable surfing experience, and by providing the best suits and bespoke boards (for their skill level) as well as top of the range facilities, we can offer just that!
What else can we expect from SSS?
Those who venture out with SSS Surf will be looked after in our top of the range Surf Van…… our transport stands out from the rest with its custom build inside and out, its fully insulated and carpeted interior with LED lighting air con & heaters throughout, internet and usb charging ports. There are 8 comfortable leather seats to help our customers chill out and enjoy the journey whilst watching epic surf footage on our flat screen TV and surround sound system. After a surf, my customers can enjoy a coffee, or a cold drink as we have a full cooker, sink with fresh water and fridge freezer onboard. Customers can use our mobile shower and pop up changing rooms and interior changing room, we even look after them with a BBQ on full day trips.
