Our beginner surf lessons from Gwithian beach near St Ives and Praa Sands. Perfect for families, friends, parent and child and couples.

We pride ourselves on small beginner surf lessons with unbeatable coach – student ratios, guaranteeing each of our customers more 1-to-1 coaching. The surf lessons will be staggered throughout the day, therefore minimising the number of people using the facilities. We are planning to reopen on the 01st April and will be running daily 2 hour beginner surf lessons from 10am-12pm, and beginner private lessons from 10.30am-12.30pm and 2.30pm-4.30pm.

When booking your surf lessons with us please let our team know about any previous surfing experience. This will help make sure you are placed in a group of similar ability and with the correct equipment. Our coaching team has a wealth of experience teaching all ages and abilities. And are proud to have a 95% success rate on getting you to your feet on your first lesson.

The minimum age we except without parental assistance is 8 years old. If your child is 6 or 7 then they can join the group lesson with the assistance of a non surfing adult. We would recommend a private group lesson for children 4-7 years old.

All of our equipment is kept to the highest standards and is no more than 2 years old. Enjoy our private facilities including heated changing rooms, toilets and onsite food and drink courtesy of our friends at Sunset Surf Cafe.

Booking your lesson in advance using our online booking system is essential and easy, as we keep our groups sizes small to ensure the ultimate customer experience.

Knowledgeable and fun would highly recommend this surf school to anybody in the area.
For the price everything is provided for you and it’s a 2hr lesson , incredibly good value for money. All of the staff were friendly and at no point do you feel silly or uncomfortable.
Hopefully be back soon!"
