Visited perranporth surf school this week as a complete novice. Staff had to dress my son in his wetsuit as it was beyond me. Katie soon had me and my 8 year old stood on boards riding the waves. Really good experience all round and attitude of all staff was second to none.

Keen to learn to surf, but being novices, my two children (14 (boy) & 11 (girl)) and I signed up for a beginners' lesson with the Perranporth Surf School. What an EXCELLENT time we had: the instructors were knowledgeable and very friendly; the amenities were good; the organisation was first-rate; and we all managed to stand up on our surfboards...
