The guys at the school made us all feel at ease, delivered great lessons...More
At my tender age I decided to give it a go. Booked 2 lessons and enjoyed both and even though I will never be great at surfing but I was given confidence to keep going. I now have my own board and will pop back...More
What an amazing group of people! We booked online and then communicated by email, just to make sure we were definitely on the beginner's course and not the pro-surfer's. All communication was quick, clear and concise.
Arrived on the first day and were kitted out...More

Couldn’t rate the instructors highly enough. My 8 year old daughter had two lessons this week and was particularly nervous after previously being caught by another board whilst in the water. The instructors gently encouraged her but never pushed her out of her comfort zone,...More

Yes, although you can learn to surf during all tides at Perranporth, wave characteristics are generally more forgiving on an incoming or higher tide. During our low season (Oct-May) we will operate either a morning (10am-12pm) or afternoon (2pm-4pm) session, depending on which is nearest to the high tide, and as demand and sea conditions dictate.
Favourable timings for lessons on those days: Mornings of the 12th & 26th, and afternoon on the 19th, based on the tidal forecast for those days.
I hope you find this helpful!
