What you'll do

Cornwall is the surfing capital of the UK, so come and try out this essential local activity on a relaxed yet structured beginner lesson with an experienced surf coach, so you can make the most of the quality surf.

Meet your instructor in Newquay, then make your way down to the beach for a lesson that’ll hopefully have you catching and riding the beautiful waves that ripple in from the Atlantic.

Group lessons are a great way to introduce yourself to surfing, learning in a completely safe environment. They give you the chance to learn in a supportive and friendly atmosphere, and we cater for all ages and abilities.

All instructors are trained to be able to give you the best chance of learning to paddle
properly, stand on a board, and simply become better surfers.

For a more personalised experience, learn to surf at your own pace on a private lesson, where you can hone any existing skills to perfection, or simply get the very best introduction to the sport of kings.

Learn to surf in the comfort of your own group, be it friends or family, and simply enjoy a memorable day in the surf and sand.
