2022 marks our 17th anniversary and we are very proud to have been awarded the highest surf school rating ‘Centre of Excellence’. The award recognises the highest level of coaching, equipment and facilities.
Waves are rare in Falmouth due to it’s sheltered location, Maenporth and Gyllyngvase beaches are the two surfing locations in the town, however both beaches rarely have waves during the summertime and only have surf during our storm season between December – March.
The nearest surfing beaches from Falmouth are Gwithian Towans on the north coast or Praa Sands on the south coast, both of which are 20-30 minutes drive from the town centre. We have Watersports Centres at both locations offering surf, SUP and Coasteering lessons along with hire.
We pride ourselves on small beginner and improver surf lessons with unbeatable coach to student ratios. The average surf lesson ratio is 1:4 with the maximum being 1:8. This guarantees each of our customers more 1-to-1 coaching. The 2-hour surf lessons will be staggered throughout the day, therefore minimising the number of people using the facilities and reducing the crowds in the surf.

If you’re after something a bit slower paced than surfing, why not give stand up paddleboarding a go? When the water’s a bit calmer, we can guide you out toward the neighbouring secret coves of Rinsey and Kenneggy where you can really feel the tranquillity of the ocean. The paddle gives you much more control over the board than surfing does, and when you’re ready to come in, you can let the waves draw you back to shore at a much gentler pace.

"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!"
