Surf Schools in Cornwall 5

Welcome to Cornwall, the home of British Surfing. This is where it all began back in the 60s when a bunch of travelling Aussies introduced Malibu style surfboards to the beaches of Newquay. With a unique and beautiful coastline and over 400 beaches, there’s no surprise Cornwall has become a mecca for British surfers. And with a 270 degree swell window offering waves in a wide variety of conditions, Cornwall has arguably some of the most varied surf in the world. With so many beaches, it’s no surprise there are so many Surf Schools here, offering Surf Lessons for all abilities, from absolute beginners to expert surf coaching.

Surfing all year round in Cornwall is not a problem. With recent innovations in wetsuit technology, there’s no reason for you to get cold even in deepest darkest winter months. Having said that, if you’re going to book a surf lessons from November to March, it’s worth checking the surf school has proper winter wetsuits and boots/gloves available.

Most Surf Schools offer lessons during the main season from April to October, but more and more Surf Schools are opening all year round.

Surfing on the South Coast of Cornwall

The South Coast, by comparison, offers more sheltered conditions with many more coves and fishing villages to explore. Away from the onslaught of the full Atlantic force, the South Coast of Surf Lessons in much calmer conditions. Surf Schools on the south coast will often offer a wider variety of activities such as Kayaking, Coasteering and Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP).
