Price for 1 participant

Cornwall surfing lessons don't get better than this one - enjoy an exhilarating half day as you learn to surf on Cornwall's No.1 surf beach! Located just a short drive from Newquay, the surf school offers amazing 2.5 hour surfing lessons taught by super-experienced and BSA-accredited instructors.

Surfing is amazing because not only do you feel the adrenaline rush that comes as you ride a wave, facing the possibility of a wipe-out, but you'll also enjoy a calming sense of focus and serenity you feel as you bob gently on your board, watching the waves and waiting for the perfect one. During this lesson, beginners can get to a point of standing up on the board, and feel that special rush that every surfer feels when they catch their first wave.

Please arrive at the surf school 15 minutes before your booked lesson. Once you have arrived at the centre you'll meet your instructor and listen to a thorough briefing on surfing safety and beach awareness. You will be fitted for your wetsuit and get your board, then it's time to get surfing... on sand. Yes, before hitting the water, you will practise all your basic moves on dry land. Once you have gotten an understanding of how to paddle out and pop-up, you will head for the water.

Now it is time to try those skills out for real. The rest of your lesson with be an exhilarating exercise in standing up on your board, and trying to remain standing up as you catch waves and ride towards the shore! Most people experience their first proper ride in this first lesson, and it's likely that by the end of your 2.5 hour lesson, you will already be looking forward to feeling that unbeatable rush again.

Anyone over the age of 7 can enjoy this surfing lesson.

You should be able to comfortably swim 50 metres in open water. Surfing is quite a demanding sport physically, and therefore a reasonable level of fitness is required.

This lesson lasts 2.5 hours, but please also arrive at the surf school 15 minutes before your lesson time.

Spectators are more than welcome, and can either watch from the water's edge, or from the centre where hot drinks and refreshments are available.

The season runs from April - November, and surfing lessons are available 7 days a week during these months.

Please bring your own swimming costume and towel, and perhaps something nice and warm to change into for after the lesson. All other gear will be provided at the centre.

On rare occasions, the beach might be red-flagged (closed) due to severe weather conditions, which will affect your surfing lesson.
