Welcome to our not for profit Boardriders page.
Our primary aim of the Boardriders is to use the sport of surfing to engage and increase participation and progression of children and adults taking part in water based sports on a daily / weekly basis throughout West Cornwall. Our Boardriders aims to cater for all surfers regardless of age / ability, this is achieved by running a number of different clubs throughout the year. Ranging from some of the most talented U16 male and female surfers in the UK to young adults trying the sport for the first time. Never before has outdoor activity been so important and we want to give back to the commit by making surfing as accessible as possible.
The Boardriders is made up of 6 club, based on gender, age and ability. By separating our 60+ members across 6 clubs we can ensure each member is surfing with others of similar ability & being coached in conditions most suitable for progression & enjoyment.

Chris, Steve and the team at Global Boarders do not disappoint they are great coaches for all levels. They are experts in sharing the love of surfing. They take groups any time of year they find the best surf to suit the group.
My son has had coaching with them for over 4 years in this time he has learnt so much taking him from a novice surfer to a competent surfer and still learning and improving.
I would recommend the team of guys at Global for a complete beginner to someone who wants to improve.
