the guys employed here are wonderful and very entertaining but the group sizes were too big and we didn't feel very looked after in the surf. definitely safe, but I would recommend checking on the group size before you pay or booking for individual training.

Thank you for your review, it was great to meet you :-) We really appreciate the feed back and have employed a floating surf coach to be on hand for these busy summer weeks in order to help keep the group sizes small and intimate. Hope you keep surfing and keep in touch. Kind regards Pete More

Brilliant lesson by Pete. My partner and son had 2 hours of teaching from King surf at Mawgan porth beach. The instructor was a genuine top class guy who made the lesson brill. They learnt loads, had fun and will definitely be booking again.

Decided as a small group to give surfing ago so booked a beginners lesson. Upon arrive we were greeted with a very warm welcome by the instructors despite the very wet weather. They did not hang about in getting us kitted out and onto the beach. Once there, a safety briefing took place and then onto the theory on how... More

Pete and Tom are both amazing instructors and great characters for your children to be around. Our kids have great fun every time we visit, no matter what the weather and always come away having learnt something new. They are now hooked on surfing! Thanks to everyone at Kingsurf, we think you are great.

Absolutely brilliant lesson from Pete and Archie for my two kids. They made them feel at home while suiting up and then gave them a two hour lesson they will never forget. Their enthusiasm for surfing rubbed off for sure and both have ditched the body boards!!!! Certificates and a junior handbook was a special touch and really appreciated. We... More

Anyone can do this. Amazing encouragement and tuition. The plank and little Tom will get you standing. Great in all weathers. If you love the beach or the sea or Cornwall this is the real deal. Great value especially if you book more than one lesson. Addicted. Female and over 40 so not just for the young lads.
