If you are looking for a fun activity for groups of school children or college students then surfing lessons at Gwithian Academy of Surfing is the perfect place to start. We have lots of experience working with educational groups and are regularly used by several schools, colleges and youth groups from both the local area and nationally.
We only use top quality, well maintained surfing equipment to ensure that surf lessons with us are successful as possible and the beach that we use at Gwithian is one of the safest and most beautiful in Cornwall. All of our coaches have both Lifeguard and Surf Instructor qualifications as well as Enhanced CRB disclosures for added peace of mind. Our instructors all have at least two years of experience in surf coaching.
Surf & Safety Awareness
If you choose to have a course of surfing lessons then we can get you signed on to the Academy of Surfing Instructors ‘Surf Safety and Awareness Program‘. Students will learn about safety in the beach environment, get a workbook to fill in and a certificate on completion from Australia’s premier surf education body.
Special Educational Rates
We have a special rate for educational groups with a surfing lesson starting from £20 per person or why not enjoy a full day of surfing for £40 per person – these prices are over 40% off our normal tariff. Group leaders surf free of charge.
Surfing is a wonderful activity that can enhance young peoples lives whether it be helping to improve their self esteem, combating obesity or just having fun with their peers in a safe learning environment.
Got back exhausted last night from the 7-hour drive home. For the 3rd year running Alasdair, myself and the 14 students from school thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lots of aches and pains but that’s just us showing our age! Big thanks to Tom and Freddie for the best surf coaching there is in Cornwall. Every time the boys rest on the sand, they are given specific instructions about how to improve, not just cast into the water and ignored, as is the case with other schools I’ve seen. The Redback softboards this year were great too. I can see myself buying one of these first before a Mini Mal. See you next year gents. Hope you get the weather you deserve.’
