We have just returned from our 11th holiday in Perranporth and the third set of surfing lessons for our daughter Eleanor. Having missed it last year (due to myself being ill) Eleanor soon got back into it and did better than ever. Thanks to the patience, expertise and skills of Gavin, Nico and Dave, Eleanor was out in the green... More

We took a beginner's lesson while on a week's holiday in Cornwall last week and it was fantastic. Our instructor Martyn was very informative, reassuring and encouraging, as were all of the team who made sure to spend time with us on a one to one basis throughout. It was a great laugh and a highlight of our whole week,... More

Fantastic instructors, everyone was genuinely lovely! Martijn was so good with us, very patient, knowledgable, kind and just a very good instructor! Would absolutely recommend it, I was up on my feet by the end of the first lesson, a clear sign of good teaching! I know that I will be returning in the near future for more lessons. Everyone...

This was a second lesson for the children and the instructor completely fitted in with them. Dave was very patient but very involved. You see some instructors just standing by but this was certainly not the case. We will be going back again in the Summer without a doubt.

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.

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!
