TWO members of one of Britian’s best current surfing families, the Skinners, have just opened up a surf school to help pass on some of their years of surfing experience.
Ben ‘Skindog’ Skinner and younger sister Sophie have opened Skindog Surf School just outside Newquay.
Ben said: “I feel very lucky to have been given so much from surfing that I feel this is my opportunity to give something back to the sport I love so much. From this school I want people to come away with the love for surfing we all have!”
And sister Sophie adds: “Seeing people catch their first waves and standing up all the way to the beach. That’s why I love my job so much.
“Surfing has always been a part of our lives. I really get a buzz from seeing people catch their first waves and standing up all the way to the beach.”
The School is based at Gone Feral Surf Shop next to the Phoenix Pub at Watergate Bay.
