What a season it has been! Thank you to everyone who chose to surf with us this year!

In the interest of staff, customers and importantly the public at large, Perranporth Surf School has reluctantly decided to temporarily suspend its activities over the coming half term period from Saturday 24th October and for the remainder of the 2020 season.

We look forward to welcoming you again in 2021.

Keep well and stay safe.

A friend and I were down in Cornwall for a yoga retreat but decided to book onto surf school as well. We had the best time EVER! My friend had never surfed before but within a day and a half was up and standing on her board. I hadn't surfed for nearly 8 years and was made to feel comfortable and was up and standing within the first hour or so. Our instructor was supportive, made us laugh and comfortable, made me want to live and surf everyday. Best decision we had ever made!!

After the weekend weather washout, I thought that I would check via Facebook whether or not that they were open. I messaged them on Facebook and via messenger. I had a reply within 10 minutes, and was able to reserve our 3 places. We had Gavin as an instructor, and nothing was too much for him. In fact we couldn’t of had a better instructor. He was so helpful to all of the group that were with him, telling us where we were going wrong and how to remedy it. I was even able to manage a couple of small turns, which certainly made my day, because to me they were massive. Both grandchildren also loved it being 11 and 15. The younger one struggled last year with the same sort of surf, but Gavin spent plenty of time with him. So much so that he was off catching the waves on his own. What an excellent surf school. Keep up the great work, and thanks for a great day.
