Neither of us had been surfing before so we didn't know what to expect - or whether we would even enjoy it. Gavin takes the time to go through everything properly and is very approachable if you have any questions. His patience teaching us made the experience really fun and we loved every second - even through the hailstorm! They... More

Gavin is a wonderful instructor, patient, knowledgeable, friendly and always has a smile on his face. More importantly he makes the session fun, which, after all, is what surfing is all about.

What an amazing experience!!! This was my first ever time surfing and I couldn't have asked to go to a better school. I had a private lesson with gavin and couldn't fault it. He was approachable and very encouraging and gave you all the tips you needed to get surfing for the first time. All of the staff at bathsheba... More

Booked a surf lesson for a Tuesday afternoon in October. We had had one lesson each before but in a large group and I was yet to master standing up! But Gavin taught us in a group of 3, gave us loads of attention, and soon enough I was up and away! The beach is a popular surf spot and... More

I went to Perranporth for 2 days of surfing lessons with my friend Shona. I had never been surfing before and our instructor, Gavin, was very patient and friendly. I was able to stand up by the beginning of the second day! I fell in love with surfing immediately so at the end of the second lesson I asked if... More

We had a fantastic couple of hours learning to surf with Gavin - he was great, tailoring the lesson to everyone's needs, and really made it a lot of fun! Would recommend Perranporth Surf School for anyone looking for great coaching, lots of fun and great value!

We decided to make a return trip to Perranporth this year and joined the team at Perranporth Surf School. Dad (me) was there for the Sunday only and in one session was standing up and surfing. Great people, instruction and kit. Thanks and I will be back again.

I can highly recommend Perranporth Surf School. I have been to a couple of other surf schools and overall these guys are the best by far. The coaches, Gavin & Dave, are really attentive, they adapt their advice to suit your ability and are very encouraging. The lessons are good value for money and they have all the stuff you... More

I have been surfing occasionally over the years without ever really getting to grips with it so thought it was about time to get a bit of tuition and iron out those bad habits! And what a great move that turned out to be! Dave and Gavin are excellent teachers, patient and encouraging, and also good fun. I had three... More
