Dutch Surf Academy

At Dutch Surf Academy they offer wave surfing, bodyboard and stand up paddleboard group lessons. A combination of these lessons is of course also possible. Safety and fun are paramount and therefore all lessons begin with a comprehensive theory lesson. The coaching is exclusively done by top surfers and coaches of the Dutch junior team: Kaspar Hamminga & Erik Ringelberg. The lessons include high quality boards and new warm wetsuits. So you won’t be short of anything during the lessons!

At Dutch Surf Academy they make sure that you have an unforgettable experience as a group.


On request, we can also take water photos of all your action, which you can take home with you after the lesson.

The lessons are open to both the novice surfer and the semi-talented surfer. Want to catch the first waves? Or do you want to lift your own surfing skills to a higher level? It is all possible!

The group lessons are perfect for company outings, bachelor parties, children’s parties or just an outing with friends!

Walk towards the horizon, through the dunes to the sea, put on swimming gear, kick off your shoes and turn right at the beach entrance of Vlugtenburg ‘s-Gravenzande. Here you will find the Dutch Surf Academy.
