Probably one of the best Surf School in Newquay. Easy car park, school on the beach, huge range of boards. Qualified and entertaining instructors. Go for the lesson + rest of the day hire, great value for money !

I had a surf lesson with Fistral Beach Surf School and they had me riding the waves with ease after one lesson, their friendly attitude and helpfulness is something to be adored. Strongly recommend for surfers and ocean dwellers of all levels!

Massive thank you to Jenny and her team! Can't recommend this surf school enough. The right balance of having fun and learning. Big, big shout out to the amazing Danny whose patience, extensive knowledge and warmth got my 8 year old daughter, and 11 year old son surfing...to see them ride a wave blew my mind!!
