You can’t holiday in Cornwall without having a dip in the Atlantic Ocean, and what better way to experience the coastal lifestyle than to have a surf lesson? Surfing is exciting, exhilarating and of course lots of fun for all ages, so catch some waves during your stay. 

There are two surf schools that operate in Mawgan Porth: The Surf Club Cornwall and Kingsurf Surf School. Both teach all levels of ability, from complete beginners to advanced surf coaching. They are available for lessons throughout the year, and will provide all of the equipment you’ll need so all you need to do is make a booking and hit the waves!

Details for both schools are as follows:

Kingsurf Surf School: contact them directly on 01637 860091 or
