“Surfing is totally addictive once you're in the water. It's surprisingly easy to get going, given the right conditions and a bit of sensible instruction.  The twins wanted more the next day and so did I !!“  Sunday Telegraph Travel Supplement

It’s a star place for novices. It's an immense sweep of sand with a lighthouse on the point and a resident seal colony.    Robyn Davies - A five time British surfing champion and surf project coordinator for the National Trust

“Tyson, just a note to thank you for all your help during our recent visit to Cornwall. We had a great time and the boys all got on really well with their surfing. Best wishes, Justin Phipps.

 

Gwithian is a beautiful place to learn to surf.  

Breathtaking scenery, perfect beginner waves that break all year around and due to the national land formation, the water is relatively warm compared to other locations in the UK.  

We pride ourselves on a 90% success rate to get you up and riding in the first lesson.
