What you'll do

Whether you're a beginner surfer just starting out, an intermediate, or even advanced. Whether you're after a great family activity, your a couple or on your own, we have the perfect session for you...
We operate on some of the best surf beaches in North Cornwall between Padstow and Mawgan Porth. So we can always find a spot to suit your ability and surf conditions.
We will arrange which beach we will be surfing at in advance of the lesson, where to meet and the time. We will meet you with all wetsuits and equipment so all you will need is a swim suit and a towel. We are then ready to hit the beach. Here we will then offer clear instruction with aims and objectives for the session, this will be then followed by a warm up before we enter the water. Once in the ocean you will be under our supervision, busy putting what you've learnt into action, whilst we offer you tips and pointers to help you reach your objectives...Lesson time is 2hrs but you should allow 3hrs from start to finish. If you are seven years or older and can swim 50 metres then lets go surfing!

What a fab time we had! Andrew was awesome, as were the other instructors. We felt safe throughout and my 9 year old caught wave after wave with their help! Loads of time in the water and lots of immediate feedback so we could adjust how we were doing things. Great experience, thanks so much - would definitely recommend you!

Amazing experience. Both complete amateurs and both standing by the end. Andrew was patient with us and made personalised suggestions where we could improve which worked a treat. Can't wait to try again :)
