About our Beginner Surf Lessons.

For September & October we will be offering our beginner surf lesson packages from our beach bases at Gwithian Towans and Praa Sands, where we have inputted COVID-19 Secure Guidelines to ensure customer and staff safety.

We will only be running small group lessons with unbeatable coach – student ratios, guaranteeing each of our customers more 1-to-1 coaching. The lessons will be staggered throughout the day to ensure only one group is arriving / departing the surf school at one time. Our daily 2 hour beginner surf lessons run from 10am & 2pm, all lessons this autumn include FREE Equipment Hire for the rest of the day.

When booking your surf lessons with us please let our team know about any previous surfing experience as we’ll then make sure you are placed in a group of similar ability and with the correct equipment to take your surfing to the next level. Our coaching team has a wealth of experience teaching all ages and abilities and a 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 6/7 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. All you will need to bring is a towel, swimsuit and hopefully suncream and our team will do the rest!

Booking your lesson in advance is essential as we keep our groups sizes small to ensure the ultimate customer experience.
