    Sam Pepler

    Owner & Instructor

    Head coach and Whitby Surf School owner Sam Pepler, has 18 years surfing experience both at home in the UK and abroad and 9 years Surf coaching experience. After a trip to New Zealand 8 years ago he was inspired to start Stand Up Paddling and has since been instrumental in encouraging the newly merging sports of SUP Surfing and SUP Touring up and down the Yorkshire Coast.

    Sam has also 14 years experience as working as a teacher in schools and leading Outdoor Educational residential trips. Having this background in education has been invaluable both in being able to comprehensively risk assess and manage the activities of the school and create dynamic lessons that not only cater for all abilities, allowing faster progression, but also for groups with special educational needs.

What we do

At Whitby Surf School we cater specifically for surf lessons from beginner to intermediate levels and SUP Lessons for flat water, exposed waters and wave surfing. We also offer full hire facilities and demo kit available allowing you to try before you buy.

Our ethos is to provide the best possible tailor made coaching either for groups or individuals; in the safest possible environment, maximising your progress and enjoyment. We want you to share the same passion that we have for surfing and SUP and therefore employ DBS checked highly trained staff; RLSS Beach Life Guards, Surfing GB and WSA trained and use the best equipment in the business. Keeping you warm and comfortable we have 5mm winter wetsuits, boots, hoods and gloves from XCEL and Tiki and have a wide selection of the beginner soft boards to make sure you’re learning on a board of the appropriate size and volume. All our instructors have experience in working with children as well as a profound knowledge of West Cliff Beach. We also try to keep our staff to student ratios lower than the industry standard.

West Cliff beach really lends itself to the beginner / intermediate surfer having good quality sand banks, limited hazards on the beach, lifeguarded throughout the season and operating at all stages of the tide, apart from high where the beach can be inaccessible, especially on spring tides. The banks work on all swell directions and the pier extensions can provide some protection from light south easterly winds.
