What you'll do

We meet at the surf school and we'll discuss your current surfing level, and how many lessons you've had, so we allocate you to the correct group. We take Beginners (never surfed or had 1 or 2 lessons), Improvers (had a few lessons, still surfing white water) and Intermediates (surfing unbroken "green" waves) on our group lessons, each allocated to a different instructor.
We change into wetsuits (provided) at the surf school (in our secure changing rooms) and allocate surfboards based on your ability. Then its off to the beach, a 2 min walk.
We'll spend some time on the beach with the group (up to about 20 minutes), covering technique, conditions, safety etc, then we'll get into the water and start surfing!
The whole of the session is very "hands on". This includes: talking to you & coaching throughout, pushing you into waves, ocean positioning & timing, focusing on paddling & stance, and most importantly ensuring you catch as many waves as possible and have lots of fun!
We use a unique teaching method for beginners and improvers; pushing & holding the back of the board as you surf towards the beach, meaning you'll progress quickly and spend more time standing & surfing!
Once the time is up, then its back to the surf school for a hot shower & get changed.
Please note: We will contact you once booked, to confirm your ability & start time as it can vary due to tide / conditions

Where you'll be

We'll be surfing on either Towan Beach or Fistral Beach.
Towan is very sheltered, so great for beginners and those less experienced at surfing.
Fistral beach is much more exposed, therefore the waves are usually much bigger here and its really only suitable for experienced surfers, however very occasionally we use this beach for novices, if the waves at Towan beach are too small - this is very rare!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 13 reviews.

Brilliant surfing experience, I had never done it before and the instructor really helped me get to grips with it! They spilt the group up into beginners and more experienced surfers so you could take your time learning. Great experience and I'm going again 😊

Really great lesson, everyone was friendly, and we really enjoyed! Only thing was that the sea was so busy, that it was difficult to find space!

Me and my husband decided to try out surfing on our first trip to Cornwall and whilst I spent a LOT of time falling off the board we had so much fun! In mid- September I was worried that I may freeze to death but the wetsuits really do do their job, and our instructor was great - really friendly and helpful, and ensured we spent as much time in the water possible (after doing all the appropriate safety talks!) Even though we had never done anything like this before we both even managed to stand up a couple of times... would definitely recommend!

Had a really great experience with Ruben. Really knew what he was doing and we were all able to stand up on the board as beginners – our main goal! Very appreciated and exactly what we wanted.
