Head Surf Coach

My name is Daniel Hart and I am the owner and head surf coach at Progress Surf School. I love surfing and I try to get in the sea every time the waves are Swansea this means I surf nearly every day!

I started teaching surfing lessons because I enjoy seeing people's faces when they first catch a wave or stand up for the first time. I also became a surf coach because teaching surfing gives me the perfect excuse to be at the beach every day enjoying the waves with my customers.


Surf Coach

I am 31 years of age and I have been surfing since I was 11 years old. As soon as I got in the water for the first time I fell in love with surfing and I have travelled all over the world to pursue my favourite sport and score the best surfing conditions.

Teaching surfing was the perfect opportunity to use the skills and techniques I have learnt over the years and I am able to see what my customers are doing right or wrong during the lessons and this helps to improve their technique more quickly.


Surf Coach

My name is Joe and I have been teaching surfing lessons for Progress Surf School for 2 years. I am currently studying in Swansea University so surfing gives me the opportunity to carry on surfing whilst earning some money to fund my studies. I love surfing in Swansea because there are a variety of waves to suit all levels of ability and the surf spots are all close by.

Hi Dan, thanks for an amazing day surfing yesterday. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Thanks again, Katie and all the girls

I could not recommend this surf school enough. The instructors were very friendly and full of positive energy. Everybody in my group managed to stand up in the first hour, as the coaches broke everything down and made things easy to understand. I will definitely be coming back in the summer!!

Great fun, excellent tuition and quality equipment. This was my first ever time surfing and I throughly enjoyed it. My girlfriend has been surfing for a number of years, but also thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and felt she made great progress over the course of the lesson
