Oxford University Surf Club is a fun and relaxed society which runs trips around the UK to popular surfing destinations.
What is surfing?
Surfing is an extreme water sport in which the wave rider, referred to as a “surfer”, rides on the forward face of a moving wave which is usually carrying the surfer towards the shore. Being a surfer involves strutting up and down the beach for excessive periods of time carrying a surfboard, partying, being very chilled and having a love and desire to catch waves.
Surfing at Oxford
As many people correctly point out, there is no sea in Oxford. Therefore, at least once a term, we leave Oxford and travel to a top UK surfing destination to surf. We’ve got qualified lifeguards and surf instructors within the club so whatever your ability, we can either teach you to surf, improve your surfing, or just make sure you have a mad time.
Each term we also try to get a few social events in which are great fun so whether you surf or not, it’s well worth coming along to those.
