Come and surf with us at St Ives Bay in Cornwall. Learn the basics of surfing or fine tune your surfing technique with a lesson at the Gwithian Academy of Surfing - one of Cornwall's longest running and most highly regarded surf schools.
At our surf school we take surf instruction seriously and work hard to make sure that your surfing lesson is as fun and rewarding as possible. For this reason all of our coaches are fully qualified as surf coaches, lifeguards and first aiders and two have even coached the British Junior Surfing Team on a number of occasions. A surf lesson with us can help you to achieve all of your surfing goals.
Gwithian Academy of Surfing is an Academy of Surfing Instructors Accredited Surf School (one of only three in Britain) that operates from Gwithian - the Northernmost point of St Ives Bay - and is very close to the towns of Hayle, St Ives and Penzance.
Gwithian is the perfect venue for surf lessons for a number of reasons.
Our surf school is run from a purpose built beach-side location where we can offer changing facilities, a classroom for teaching surfing theory and providing video analysis, and ample parking.
Gwithian Academy of Surfing offers group and private surfing lessons for all levels - beginners, intermediate and advanced - and for all ages. We regularly cater for families, backpackers, children, schools and corporate groups.
Beside our surf school we have a surf shop where we can spend time with you to find the right equipment to suit your build, style and ability. Surf hire is also available.
Accommodation can also be provided in our beautiful seaside village to help make your stay the perfect surfing holiday.
