Global Boarders Watersports Centre15 minutes from Marazion

We have 2 Watersports Centres near Marazion. Also offering coasteering and guided stand up paddleboarding tours.

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.

Marazion sits in a sheltered location within the famous Mounts Bay. The two surfing beaches in the town are Marazion and Longrock. Both beaches rarely have waves during the summertime, and only have surf during our storm season between December – March.

The nearest surfing beaches from Marazion are Gwithian Towans on the north coast or Praa Sands on the south coast, which are both 15-20 minutes drive from the town centre. We have Watersports Centres at both locations offering surf, SUP and Coasteering Adventures and hire.

We will be running daily 2-hour group and private surf lessons at both locations, along with daily Coasteering Adventures from Mousehole and Praa Sands.. When booking your surf lessons with us please let our team know about any previous surfing experience. We will then make sure you are placed in a group of similar ability and with the correct equipment.

Launched in 2022 – Check out our Coasteering Experiences from the picturesque locations of Mousehole and Praa Sands.

"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!"

Guided Stand up Paddleboard Tours Marazion and St Ives

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.

  • 2 Hour Private 1-to-1 Lesson – £90.00
  • 2 Hour Private 1-to-2 Lesson – £70.00 per person
  • 2 Hour Private Group Lesson (3-6 people) – £60.00 per person
