When making any big decision, we know that nothing beats being able to discuss things face to face with someone who knows what they are talking about. So whether you are deciding which Instructor course is best for you to train to become a surf, ski or snowboard instructor, or how to plan your perfect gap year or short break, we are here to chat about your options with Ticket to Ride!

We also love to keep in touch with anyone who has come on a trip with us in the past. So look out for our regular Meet Ups to meet likeminded travellers and hear about past and future trips with Ticket To Ride.

London Open Days & Meet Ups

Paddle For Equality Thames SUP Challenge

WHEN: Sat 23rd June 2018

WHERE: London, Shepperton/Kew/Fulham

Join Ticket to Ride for the annual THAMES STAND-UP PADDLE BOARD CHALLENGE on Saturday 23rd June. 

This event is to raise money for Waves for Change & The Isiqalo Foundation, helping those less fortunate through Surf Therapy. This year we are going to “Stand-Up for Equality” and break the barriers of gender discrimination so more girls can be provided with safe access to the sea and surf therapy. 

We are encouraging Past Riders, Future Riders, friends, family, acquaintances, small businesses, sports teams, and even your Mums pilates teacher, to enter and have a chuckle or three in the sun whilst raising funds for a good cause! Oh and of course it ends with a cracking After Party at The Blue Boat with lots of like-minded people!

There is going to be a choice of two routes; the shorter one is 5km [Kew to Fulham], which will start around 1:30pm. If you are an early riser and fancy a challenge, the other is 35km [Shepperton to Kew to Fulham] and leaves at 7:30am.

Both take in the scenic views of London, Both guarantee a lot of fun, Both will go a long way is helping us achieve our mission and Both will end at the The Blue Boat for a tipple or two! Many prizes from Finisterre Goodies to a Harbour Brewing Company Beer Hamper!

Paddle Boards included from our friends at Active360 and all money raised goes to Waves for Change. So grab a board and get amped! If you can't make the paddle just come down, support the paddlers and join us at the After Party.

Who Will Be There?

Members of the Ticket to Ride Team, and occasionally past riders, to chat openly about our instructor courses and short trips and camps.

Why Come?

Come along to discuss what life as an surf, ski or snowboard instructor is like, and whether it might be for you! We train around 120 instructors each year, with a large majority going on and working in the surf and snow industries all over the world!

Hear first hand from past Riders or trip leaders. We’ll also cover the difference between the locations, what opportunities there are afterwards, and see whether life as an instructor is for you.

Free to attend, just register your interest with us so we can get in contact to book you in a specific time slot!

What will we talk about?

Overview – Why should you do a surf or snow trip/course?
Course Options – Which trip/course is right, and which location?
Life after TTRide – What prospects are there in the industry? Hear first hand from past Riders.



The brains of the operation! If you are ever in the area, or happen to live in the beautiful South-West, you are always welcome to come to our office in Exeter and meet the team, chat about any courses and see what goes on behind the scene.
