We specialise in small groups (max 6 with 1 coach), simple and achievable techniques for all abilities, the best equipment available, incredibly passionate & experienced coaches as well as 2 of the best locations available for your Surf or SUP experience.

You can now find us in Newquay at Base Surf Lodge where we can offer fantastic Surf & Stay packages at great prices, as well as our new base over at the National Trust's Crantock Beach where we are the only surf school! Perfect to find some quiet space during the busy peak summer.

We booked an evening paddle boarding with Dale. Having had some basic training on the beach we were straight in the water and paddling down river. Dale gave us tips on the way down as to how to improve our technique, and was there if we needed him but otherwise left us to paddle along! It was such a relaxing... More

Great beach, great staff, great value, great two hour session, in short it's great. We have been coming here for years and the wife has always said she wanted to try it but never booked it. This time I decided to just book it for her. The guys there are so friendly and are happy to give advice even if... More

We met these guys in Crantock beach while travelling in our motorhome. It was october half term and a very few people wishing to go in the water. My daughter persuaded me to have a go I am glad that I did. Ross was brilliant, we had a great fun, definitely will be back...Thank you guys!

I would recommend these guys any day over the others. We had a lesson on fistral beach before going to these guys and the group had 30 people - 4 instructors. This meant very little tuition time, later that day we went to crantock beach and booked a lesson with the big green surf school. This time there was 1... More

So stoked that you like our Crantock setup - we certainly think the smaller groups provide a lot more opportunity for tuition and it's a lot more fun for both students AND coaches! Hope to see you again for some more waves! More

Dale is an excellent instructor and we both managed to stand up on the boards by the end of the 2 hour session. Really good fun and would definitely return.

Visited last month as an experienced surfer. Did a lesson purely because of my mates doing one for the first time, after lack of time/enthusiasm to be in the water much over the last couple of years Dale and the team have got me back on track! Great for all levels of surfers
