My boyfriend and I had our first ever surf lesson here with Joe. It was the highlight of our holiday in Cornwall and we had a fantastic time. The facilities in the surf school were great as well. Joe was really friendly and explained everything well, couldn’t have asked for a better instructor.

Great ‘intermediate’ surf lesson with Jo! Both my son Thomas and myself picked up a few good tips to bring back to Northumberland. Jo even found a quiet corner on Fistral to practice in!!😮 Great shop, changing facilities, lockers, showers and only the shortest of hops to the beach. We’ll deffo call again

Fantastic beginner lesson with Ryan! He made us feel so at ease and is fantastic with the children and explained everything so well! For anyone who is nervous or has no idea what they are doing I highly recommend a lesson with Ryan! Will definitely be coming back!

My two teenagers have been looking forward to learning to surf for so long. Bertie was brilliant; personable, helpful and encouraging. He helped them realise their dream of becoming cool surfer dudes in just two hours.

I had a body boarding lesson today with instructor Joe. I was a complete beginner and he was very patient. I had great fun and would definitely recommend this company to friends. Also the changing rooms were immaculate, warm and spacious, something I wasn't expecting.
