If you’re looking to learn to surf in Cornwall then you’ve come to the right place. Situated on Porthmeor beach in the heart of St Ives, and a stone’s throw away from the iconic Tate Gallery is St Ives Surf School, the first and only surf school in St Ives. We are open 7 days a week, all day long and provide a wide range of Surf Lessons, SUP Lessons, Sea Kayaking and Coasteering for all ages and abilities.
Our Sea Kayaking, SUP and Coasteering activities all operate from our beachfront Watersports centre on the ‘Blue Flag’ Porthminster Beach. Overlooking St Ives Harbour, Godrevy Lighthouse and the Island, it is hard to imagine a better location to enjoy watersports in Cornwall.
Amongst our team at the surf school this year are pro surfers Jayce Robinson (British Tour Champ), Harry De Roth (UK Junior Champ) and Jordan Roberts (UK U23 Ocean Paddle Champ), despite their busy schedules you can regularly find these guys either training in the crystal clear waters of St Ives, coaching down at the school or just relaxing with an ice cream on the beach.
All of our coaches are fully qualified instructors, CRB checked and trained beach lifeguards. Throughout all of our activities we maintain a safe, fun and enjoyable ocean experience that you will never forget.
Teaching surfing in the heart of St Ives since 1997
