My first ever surfing lesson & these guys are so enthusiatic and passionate about what they do that I wanted to pack my job in and spend all my days in the sea by the time I'd finished! Can't recommend highly enough for the welcome you will definately get and the professionalism & patience in showing you the ropes.

Went to Kingsurf as part of a works training session. I have NEVER touched a surf board before let alone tried to surf. Pete was the trainer - totally professional, dedicated and enthusiastic. But he is as mad as a bag of frogs!! Had a great laugh througout (even the more mundane safety aspects prior to the water based antics).... More

Massive thanks to Pete at Kingsurf for his infectious enthusiasm and patience during our surf lesson today. My boyfriend and I had an absolute blast, totally lucked out on the weather as the sun shone throughout and we had the sea to ourselves. Can't recommend Pete and Kingsurf Surf School highly enough, it was a highlight of our week in... More

Pete, as promised here is our trip review (willingly given). The weather was perfect, the beach deserted and the waves were perfect. Pete was great, relaxed and really helpful & attentive, helpded make a birthday treat even better than we expected. We'll be back!

Great enthusiastic instructors, even when teaching a group of (slightly hung over) hens!! Very reasonable rates and the girls all had a great, if slightly chilly, time. Made the cream tea afterwards even better!! Thanks guys.

I cannot say enough great things about King Surf and the instructors there! I stayed in Mawgan Porth for 2 days and had a lesson each day. I've surfed previously, in Miami (aka tiny to no waves most of the year). So I was excited to work on my skills in better conditions. King Surf absolutely exceeded my expectations. I... More
