My partner and I had never surfed before! We had our first lesson and the instructor was very good! I managed to stand once that was all but that's more then what i thought I would achieve! They were very patient and we had a good laugh! Returning later this year!

Our children had a great time. By the end of their first lesson they were attempting to stand on the board. They were in a group but all had individual time with the instructor, who was encouraging them all the time. The instructors kept a close eye on everyone and kept bringing them back when they started to drift off.... More

And turning and grab railing within the week. Katie was the most patient, helpful and friendly teacher. We all cant wait till we can go... More

Well what can I say, Perranporth is definitely the right location and Perranporth Surf School were the right guys to teach me. My wife and I had a two hour lesson with half a dozen or... More
