“Unfortunately only able to surf one week a year, but...”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I would highly recommend Gavin and the team. We go to cornwall for a week once a year and each time my friends and I have a lesson to refresh our knowledge. We are in our 40s and live in land locked Oxford so dont get the opportunity to surf day to day. We have never been dissapointed and will be signing up again for lessons next year. We have never thought about having a lesson anywhere else! If we can stand up after one lesson, anyone can.

“Irish dancers hit the surf!!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We would definitely recommend Perranporth surf school. We visited Perranporth as a group of Irish dancers and clueless in surfing!! We had a range of ages from 6 to 37.. Gavan was so thorough and so patient in his lesson. He helped each of us individually while allowing all of us to get as much as we could out of the 2 hour lesson. We loved it and it was one of the highlights of our trip. They are also very reasonably picked with group rates including all the gear. Ideal for a morning or an afternoon if you happen to be in the area. Thanks so much, we will be back

“Kids had a ball, would highly recommend”

My 2 daughters were with a group that had a surfing lesson with Gavin last weekend. They absolutely loved it. Gavin was a brilliant teacher, he had a great manner & really encouraged them all. Would highly recommend it.
