    Learnt to surf at SSC when I was 8! Kept going back there year after year because of Dave and crew being amazing every year. Amazing location right on the best beach in the UK and probably one of the more consistent beaches I’ve been to.

    Dave and the team are fantastic – I take my class there whenever I can and they are brilliant with the kids. They are super knowledgable and have the perfect balance of professionalism and fun.

    We started coming to sennen 4 years ago and stubbed accross this friendly chap Dave and his dad and we have been having lessons once a year to improve our skills. This lovely man and his big family and family of professional surfers are well thought of by the local s with immense community instigating all manner of. Beach cleaning as well and we travel 7-10 hours by car for the amazing pleasure if only we were closer.
    We would be there to be part of this on a weekly basis ! Fabulous people very professional say no more !

    The amazing group of surf instructors at sennen surfing centre are totally awesome humans. We fell in love with their enthusiasm and humour and their patience and love of surfing. Dave is like a dad who seems to take everyone under his wing and the young people that teach are amazing at their jobs. Their teaching has helped my son gain so much confidence and their care makes me confident in leaving him with them. Amazing school.

    Brilliant group of people who work hard to run great surf lessons, with an emphasis on everyone enjoying themselves and having a laugh, as well as catching some waves. This family-feel business is where I surfed every summer with friends since I moved to Sennen, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. The group are also safety smart, knowing what they should and shouldn’t do when the tides or swells aren’t quite what they’d like. I’d recommend this school to anyone :)

    Fantastic family run business who treat you as a human being and not a victim to make a fast buck. Brilliant instructors and boss man Dave has all the enthusiasm you need. Keep up the good work.

    The best beach around with the added bonus of some of the friendly, enthusiastic people make Sennen Surf School the perfect place to go no matter what level you’re at!

    What a great experience I had earlier this summer.
    I had an intermediate lesson with Jackson. Both Jackson and Dave were the most friendly guys you could meet. I had the best days surfing and upped my wave count massively.
    Seenen as a centre and as a location is great. Great waves and clear water with great instructors. What more could you ask for?

    Was recommended this school by surfing sumo , great team of instructors lead by the owner Dave . Not only do they evaluate your level they also help you plan your development and work on specifics . Have had several lessons this summer with Connor (great guy , very talented surfer and coach ) and he and Dave worked on a plan for me to help develop my surfing . Will be taking many more lessons over the next few years to improve and to help hone my skills
    Wonderful location as well , if you are in the area don’t hesitate to book a lesson , they are a great school with an enthusiastic and talented group of instructors
