What our Customers Say:
Cornwall’s premier surf school
At our surf school we take surf tuition 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.
The surf school is run from a purpose built beach-side location where we can offer changing facilities, a classroom for teaching surfing theory and facilities for video analysis within an easy level walk of the shoreline. The surf school is right next to a large car park so parking is always available.
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.
Accommodation can also be provided in our beautiful seaside village to help make your stay the perfect surfing holiday.
