90% of time when is surfing is dedicated to paddling. You must pass through the breaking waves to reach surfing zone before catching a wave. Once in a surfing zone, you also must constantly move to find the ideal point to start from. Lack of good physical shape and proper paddling skills can make surfing zone unattainable.

"POP-UP" scheme

Once in an ocean, most people completely forget about technique of movements performance. This is natural, as there are so many things to remember at the same time. For this reason, we help you to develop muscle memory during our courses. We teach the correct and easy going from a lying position to a standing position using special «pop-up» schemes developed on Japanese method.

Surf-cubes and paddling simulators

Using surf cubes lets us explain the physiology of body and board interaction when in lying and standing positions, as well as maneuvering on a wave. We teach how to regulate the speed in surfing and how to catch a lot of waves by performing very simple body weight transfers. We also use surf cubes to improve paddling techniques with low energy consumption, eliminating excessive physical tension in the lower back and neck.


Each wave has a constantly moving surface that changes its form every second. Besides just standing on board while surfing, you also must be able to make turns and other maneuvers. Balance is what surfing begins with. You can master the skills of balance using a special simulator called a «balance-board». The balance board is an oval shaped board ...

Reviews of our club

Dmitriy Sudakov


Surfway Moscow, for me, is a tropical surf-island in the harsh reality of Moscow. Every time when I come to the ocean, I think that I should have trained more. I recall Surfway training in Moscow and I understand that, without them, I would have wasted my two-week vacation uselessly splashing in the foam, taking a picture with the surf board and then telling my friends that I am a surfer. =) Surfway Moscow always has an emotional and cheerful atmosphere. Great guys! Thank you for everything!

Karina Patakhova


Thanks to the entire Surfway Moscow team! I am always ready for a "line-up," even in Moscow. For anyone who wants to surf but is not ready to change their country of residence, I recommend training and getting ready for surfing in advance. In Moscow, this is possible in the Surfway Moscow surf-school.

Marina Khaikina


Recently, someone told me that being a surfer in Moscow is difficult and impossible. I had the same opinion until last year. It seems, it is not so. Surfway Moscow proved it. The guys love and cheer for their work, they widely spread their enthusiasm, and what is the most important, they train and teach something that seems impossible to do in city conditions - to surf. And you know, they're doing great.

I got to Surfway Moscow school on recommendation. I did not even think that I would really take to surfing, but the waves and atmosphere of the ocean soaked me into this hobby. When I had decided to keep my fit in Moscow, I seek help from Surfway Moscow. And here I believe, it is the coaching staff to become the main advantage for me. They make it possible to properly feel what surfing is. I attend training sessions at least two to three times a week. Although I not always do everything right away, the main thing is not to give up, and the school of professionals helps with it!

This is great project! As I understand, it's one of a kind in the Moscow region. We do boat wakesurfing, and took the course "Surfing preparation for beginners". We really liked it! Wakesurfing is a wonderful thing and great entertainment, as well as a very effective preparation for surfing. Everything is organized very well: training spaces are conveniently located, there is always a choice of place and time. Great team! Positive, open, enthusiastic people, who adore what they do. I recommend Surfway Moscow to everyone who plans to touch the magical world of surfing, and to everyone who has tried surfing and wants to reach a whole new level.

Alla Emelyanova


The guys from Surfway Moscow developed an excellent program that allows you to try your hand at mastering waves far from the ocean and regardless of your level of physical fitness. They treat their students with great attention and care and rejoice at students' successes as their own. In such an atmosphere, you learn quickly and easily. Training is very diverse, but at the same time, everything is aimed at acquiring the necessary skills for the ocean. For example, the technique of pop-up on a surfboard is first practiced on land and then trained in the pool. The guys were attentive to my back injury and helped find a way for me to take-off for surfing that was comfortable.

Good afternoon! I would like to express my gratitude to Surfway Moscow. In February, 2016, I came to Surfway for the "Surfing basics for beginners" BEST course. These were very informative, interesting, and productive two months of training, as a result of which I learned the basic rules of surfers' behavior on the "line-up," learned how to read forecasts, and how to determine the best time for a ride. I also mastered skate-surfing, and what is the most important, these courses helped me to catch my first wave during a trip together with Surfway Moscow to Vladivostok. I would also like to mention that Surfway is not just about fun trainings, it is also a team of about interesting, diverse, and fun people! Thanks to Surfway, especially to our teacher Denis Drogaykin, for excellent classes, new friends, and, of course, for the first wave! I am pleased to continue to take lessons with you!
