As we are always looking for helpers and coaches, I am proposing to hold a helpers/future coaches training day on Saturday 28 April 2012 at 10:00 on Gylly beach, to run through all the relevant disciplines and what our coaching aims are. Please come prepared to have a go, so running shoes at the ready and wetsuits on!!

If you are interested in helping out on the beach providing water cover, or wish to take a more active part in the coaching, then please register your interest at the registration desk at the last pool session, or let me know on 07801 580106.

Finally, my one top tip for a great beach experience is having a good wetsuit, as being cold will mean that all enjoyment will be lost.

I cannot stress how important a good quality and well fitting wetsuit is for the enjoyment of the beach and water activities.

For your information, we have arranged with Sessions surf shop in Falmouth that they will give 10% off all wetsuit purchases if you mention you are a member of Gylly SLSC (so wear your hoodies), and they also operate a part exchange service. Obviously, other wetsuit and surf shops are available if required!
