Cornwall's Number 1 MobileSURF SCHOOL

Cornwall’s Number 1 Mobile Surf School. Enjoy perfect waves without the crowds.

As a surf school based in Cornwall with the flexibility to go mobile, we can sidestep cancellations and focus on providing our groups with the safest and optimal conditions each day. With our surfer mindset, we’re constantly on the lookout for prime conditions, and we’re committed to instilling that ethos into our lessons. It’s widely recognised that learning to surf in the best conditions gets you standing or turning on your surfboard faster.

Learn more about our mobile surf school locations, which span across secret beaches in St Ives Bay, the iconic Fistral Beach in Newquay, and picturesque spots like Porthtowan, Portreath, Perranuthnoe, Marazion, and Penzance.

No need to worry if you don’t have your own surf equipment! We’ll ensure our minibus is stocked with all the necessary surfboards and wetsuits for the session, ready to bring them to the designated surf spot as arranged beforehand.

Book a 2 hour surf lesson for just £40.00 per person.

How our mobile surf school operates

Established in 2005, Global Boarders initially operated as a mobile surf school, allowing us to take our clients to some of Cornwall's premier surf destinations. Through years of experience, it became clear that Gwithian and Praa Sands stood out as the most consistent beaches for excellent surf conditions.  Two decades on, we remain true to our roots and will use any of our numerous mobile surf school locations throughout Cornwall if conditions demand it or if the group expresses a preference for a particular surf spot.

We went kayaking with Matt and we had the best time on the water. Matt was able to tell us so many stories and sealife details. He also showed us a lot of caves and we were lucky to see a seal, lots of jellyfish and even some mackerels. Thank you Matt for making it so much fun and taking the time!

Had a surf lesson with Ian, who was a skilled and thoughtful teacher, encouraging and hilarious. Made all of us first time surfers ranging from mid-forties to seven, extremely comfortable, counting it as one of our favorite days on a family holiday. Thank you to the team!

Another amazing lesson with Justin in Hayle 😊 He’s very good at guiding and helping you better your kayaking skills and he is very knowledgeable about a lot of things! I would highly recommend Justin, this is my 3rd lesson with him and have booked my fourth, can’t wait 😁

A fun paddleboarding adventure on a beautiful afternoon at Mullion Cove. Stephen was a great guide, who looked after our mixed ability group well and taught us lots of new techniques. We saw seals and cormorants at Mullion Island and enjoyed a bit of complementary coasteering, swimming through one of the many caves along this stretch of cliff.

Went coasteering with Global Boardriders and Chris with my two sons, 12 and 15. It was a private booking, so just the four of us. It made for a great day out and was tailored to our abilities. Loads of interesting info and a really unique perspective on the coastline. It was the boy's favourite day of the trip, and my youngest was very happy he'd made the jumps. Highly recommended, I would do it again.

Great experience. We paid £40 for a 2 hour beginner lesson including equipment hire for our son. First and foremost we had a friendly, welcoming service from the lady in the reception area and we were really pleased that the 2 hour timer began when the lesson started, once on the beach! The instruction was a thorough induction to surfing! inparticular a shout out to a great teacher Louie! To top it all off they included a free hour of surf board use after the lesson. My son thoroughly enjoyed it!
