Are you one of those people who has stood on a beach watching local surfers, riding wave faces and generally looking like they are having the time of their life and thought 'I would so like to give that a try'? If so, then these surf trips for beginners are just for you – aiming to help you step smoothly into the world of surfing which from a distance can look inaccessible and maybe even intimidating.

Our vast choice of surf trips for beginners are aimed to get you up and riding, under the expert guidance of qualified instructors and having so much fun that you might not even realize how much you are learning. The surf schools, clinics, intensive classes and professional instructors you will have daily access to here focus on providing high standard, expert tuition which allow you to gather your new skills at your own pace.

What's more, these beginner-focused surf trips are based in every corner of the planet – near and far, familiar and exotic - allowing you to combine your dream of learning to surf with a dream destination experience. From budget friendly surf camps to ultimate luxury surf resorts and from surf trips suited for solo travelers to family-friendly ones – everything is on offer here whether you are looking for a private tranquil retreat or a full on party scene.

We are not going to bombard you here with all the details of the waves you will be riding – you will discover that in your own time once you arrive at your exciting surf holiday destination. All you need to know for now is that your first forays into the ocean will be on mellow waves which have been hand-selected to provide the safest and most fun learning environments for novice surfers.

The majority of our trip options for learning to surf are based in Europe – France, Spain and Portugal in particular. However, if you crave something a little more exotic then Asian and Indian Ocean destinations also crop up plenty, including once-in-a-lifetime tropical paradise options such as the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Or perhaps you would like to experience the culture, nature and warm water waves at one of our Central or South American based surf trips – with such countries as Costa Rica, and Peru on the menu? The list goes on and on and also includes Africa, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

With such a huge range of learn to surf trips offered it will probably come as no surprise to learn that your accommodation choices also come in every variety. By far the largest accommodation type is offered through social vibe surf camps but there is also a good selection of surf resorts for those looking for a little more comfort and luxury.

From dorm rooms to private villas and everything else in between, the options here are comprehensive so you can be certain of finding something which fits perfectly, no matter how your traveling party is made up.

Beginner surf trips are open to everyone who harbors a dream of learning to ride the world's waves - no matter what your sex, age or budget limitations are. Also, it doesn't matter whether your travel companions are total beginners or experienced surfers – options here include trips aimed at keeping everyone in a mixed ability group happy whether you are one of a couple, in a party of traveling friends or a family. Perhaps you'd love to learn to surf but are traveling alone? No worries - you might set out solo but after spending some time learning to surf with others at a surf camp, you won't stay that way for long. There are even options for girls-only learning to surf trips or surf road trips for those who want to get out exploring a region a bit more.

Most of our learn to surf options come as budget to medium range holiday choices but we also have luxury and even ultimate luxury selections for discerning travelers who enjoy the good things in life.

Packages offered in the beginner surf trip category come in every variety from accommodation only and self-catering right through to all-inclusive options for a truly hassle free holiday. No matter what you have in mind with regard to meal arrangements and any extras or add-ons needed according to your personal requirements, we are confident we can match it.

Here at LUEX, as surfers ourselves, we remember how bewildering and even scary it can seem standing on the outside, peering into the surfing world. We would like to help you step into that world, totally intimidation-free, by matching you with your perfect learning to surf trip. We can help you sort through the wonderful but perhaps confusing options - just give our experts a call to turn that learning-to-surf dream into a reality. One last word of advice - surfing is highly addictive...don’t say you haven’t been warned!
