Surf Courses Cornwall 

Looking to improve your surfing through a structured surf course?

We provide a regular introduction to surfing courses in Cornwall with speciality camping accommodation.

Our surf weekends are an immersive introduction to surfing course spread over a weekend in Cornwall combined with a night camping at our unique private woodland wild camp. 

The Surf Instruction 

Led by a dedicated team of experienced surf coaches the weekend aims to provide insights to all aspects of surfing. A series of three progressive lessons each structured in an easy to understand step by step process allowing you to quickly develop new skills to practice and master. 

An important part of surfing is understanding the theory and reasons behind both your actions and the ocean. Having a greater understanding of the sea and the processes behind your actions solidify your skills and create a roadmap for your future direction as a surfer. 

We use the Independent Ability Measure iAM bands to help us guide you along the surfer’s path. Using structured techniques and honest feedback, iAM bands surfing ability measure provides a clear set of skills to work on and obtain before moving on to the next stage of surf skills.

The Wild Camping

Our wild camp site is located on a live working dairy farm just a few miles from Newquay and is there a perfect place to relax after a good day in the surf.  

Set in our very own private woodland we’ve taken a whole new approach to camping as you know it. Packed with activities and a variety of areas to explore the woodland wild camp is a unique experience in itself.  With a large open sided barn for surf theory’s and socialising, a games area covered marquess, BBQ’s and fire pits it’s camping but not as you know it. 

BBQ and fire pit for sharing stories of the day and unwinding before kicking back in our comfy shared Bell tent accommodation each supplied with airbeds & pillows.
