Our surf tuition takes place on Newquay’s epic Fistral Beach. Cornwall is blessed with many superb surfing beaches, but Fistral Beach is by far the finest - any seasoned surfer will tell you that it gets some of the best waves in the UK. Our Newquay surfing school is less than 100 metres from the south end of Fistral Beach, which means less-crowded, learner-perfect waves. Hence, our accredited surf coaches will get you on your feet and surfing in no time!
