After a couple of beginners lessons at other surf schools the excellent instructors at Perranporth Surf School gave me the help and encouragement to get standing up and surfing. We now have a few more weekends planned and hope to get down to Perranporth soon for another lesson!

Visited last week (for the 2nd time) and had a group lesson. Being 6 of us we had an instructor to ourselves. Discounts offered for groups. I was the only one in the group to have never done it before and Katy was absolutely brilliant with us. The tuition and safety advice was spot on and most importantly to us... More

Me and two friends had some lessons at the start of July. The instructors were really helpful and enabled us to progress - I managed to get the hang of standing up with the instructor's guidance! The surf school is a great local business run by top guys and we'll definitely be back. It was great value for money and... More

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.
