Praa Sands is the Number 1 surfing destination on the South Coast of Cornwall.
We are the only licensed surf school and surf hire provider at Praa Sands and are based at the front of the main car park. Quieter than most of Cornwall’s other surfing beaches, Praa Sands offers great waves for our beginner lessons at low tide and more advanced waves for improvers at high.

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.
Hire facilities OPEN from Wednesday 02nd December.
We have a great range of quality surf equipment available from our beach base at Praa Sands. During the winter months we will only be accepting advanced bookings only.
We will be following strict government guidelines to ensure all equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each use, please respect social distancing on arrival and we appreciate your patience during busy times.
If you are hiring for 2 days then we’ll add a 10% discount to your package and for any surf hire for 3 days or more you will receive a 20% discount.
If you can’t make it Praa Sands then check out our new Door to Door hire service where we can deliver your equipment direct to you.
Just returned from 3 beginner session back to back on 24th & 25th Nov 2020... as a beginner i was unsure what to expect but i have to say from booking, meeting the instructor on a pre arranged beach to getting on the waves, everything was incredibly well organised. All the gear was provided and i had a brilliant time, was taken through the whole process, including surf etiquette and reading the waves etc.. we achieved so much more than i ever hoped to and had a brilliant time. The weather and the waves were spectacular!! Finally a big thank you to Chris, my instructor.. what a top class guy, nothing was too much trouble, endlessly patient and a great teacher..Global Boarders Surf Co. highly recommended*****
