We are the only licensed surf school at Praa Sands and have been running lessons from Praa Sands for 15 years.

Come and join us this autumn as the sun sets over Mounts Bay for an eye-opening spectacle across the shimmering waters of our much loved southern jewel.

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.
