see them on the beach! great part of the community - really care about the sea and being safe - always approachable and aware - even if you aren't in their class. However a lesson is really worth it - even if you think you can surf - so you can learn how to read the sea at Mawgan Porth... More

Just back from a week of surfing with Kingsurf. Thanks to Alice and the team for such an enjoyable experience. With a young family (pre-surf age) we did couple lessons sharing the 2 hour session between us-one surfed whilst the other played on the beach with the kids. The coaching was excellent and the progression we made was beyond expectations.... More

My husband and 15 yr old teenage twins Lily & Olly booked a beginners lesson for the afternoon of Sunday 21st August. The sea was quite choppy after the previous day's storms and they were complete novices but Archie was brilliant & they came out of the sea completely exhausted, with smiles on their faces having loved every minute of...

My son and I had a couples class, neither of us had surfed before. The instructor gave a clear and simple tutorial on the sand then we headed out into the sea. My son was standing on his second attempt, I on the other hand took a little longer. The sea was a little strong that day but despite this... More

Thanks guys - I'll let Ryan know your kind words. So glad you threw yourselves into it & hope that we'll see you guys again here in the near future. We always make sure that where we surf on the beach is the safest possible (but also with the best waves), even if that means moving around a bit. Enjoy... More

All I can say is how laid back and chilled out all of these guys are. I've been going back each summer to learn more about surfing and to get better at it and I'm pretty sure I have! It is such an amazing experience that anyone who has a slight urge to go should try! The nicest thing for... More

Thoroughly recommended, really friendly and professional set up. We had a private lesson to help accommodate my daughter who is autistic. The instructor was great, I went there thinking my daughter might only stay interested for a short time but she loved it and caught loads of waves!
