Whitsand Bay’s Premier surf school is tucked away in the amazing “Forgotten Corner” of SE Cornwall and just a stone’s throw from Torpoint, Plymouth and Looe. We’ve built a solid reputation as one of the most exciting surf schools on the South coast, not just because of our breath-taking location or our experienced coaches but because we focus on fun lessons in smaller groups than you’d expect to find on some of Cornwall’s busier beaches. Perfect for families, couples, individuals or large private groups, we work with all but elite levels of surfing ability. We have THE best Coasteering route just a mile from the beach and offer comprehensive surf hire too.

Book Surf Lessons
Beginner/Improver Course (3 lessons)
This 3 lesson course is designed to take chunks out of that learning curve and encompasses surf safety appropriate to the conditions and abilities of the students . Although anyone can sign up, we find that this is our most popular option for families looking to lose the kids for a few hours each day during their holidays, giving you some well earned peace and quiet! The sessions can be tailored to suit your surfing level and a typical course would look something like this: Session 1: Beginner Lesson, Session 2: Focuses on wave selection, paddling technique and getting to your feet more effectively. Session 3: Paddling out through the breaking surf, catching green (unbroken) waves, angled take offs and rail based turns.
Group Beginner or Improver Lesson
You’ll be joined by other keen learners and our coaches will adapt elements of your lesson to suit your ability. Our coaching ratio is 1:7 to maximise fun and safety. Minimum age 7. Please note that we may have to alter lesson timings to suit sea conditions.
Family Lesson (4 people) 12pm
Discounted for a family of 4 ( You must enter at least 4 people when booking ).

Perfectly balanced, this session lasts 90 minutes and we promise to tire the kids out for you! Additional members can be added at £25 per person. This lesson usually takes place at mid day but please note that we may have to alter lesson timings to suit tide and conditions.
