At Global Boarders we promise an unforgettable ocean experience whether you are just visiting us on holiday or live locally to the area. We have 2 fantastic beach front locations at Gwithian and Praa Sands, where we are the only licensed surf and coasteering school. Both beaches were recently listed in the Sunday Times ‘Top 10 Surf Locations in England’ and are known for their friendly uncrowded waves and spectacular coasteering routes.
2021 marks our 16th anniversary and we are very proud to hold the highest Watersports Centre Rating ‘Centre of Excellence’. The award recognises the highest level of coaching, equipment and facilities being offered.
At Global Boarders safety is everything, all of our instructors and guides are trained lifeguards and experienced surfers. Our wetsuits and surfboards are disinfected and surf school facilities deep cleaned daily. Our full COVID-19 policy can be found here.
Use our quick and easy online booking system to reserve your surfing and / or coasteering packages in advance. This is essential as we have reduced our capacities to adhere to COVID-19 and Sport England guidance.

"Had a lesson with Alfie this afternoon , for myself my dad and my daughter , we are all beginners and he was excellent with us .
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!"
