St Ives Surf School

St Ives Surf School

Located on the golden sands of St Ives, St Ives Surf school is a team of friendly, experienced and talented surfers who are teaching their mesmerising watersport skills to visitors, locals, newbies, experts and all the in-between! 

St Ives Surf School is located Porthmeor beach which is known for its strong sea wind and grand waves which is a surfer’s paradise. Open seven days a week and suitable for all ages and abilities, this Surf school does more than just teach you to ride waves; you can learn to kayak, coasteer, SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding) and much, much more.

The experienced and qualified teachers offer a wide range of surf lessons for every skill level as well as provide lessons for families, birthdays and special occasions. Though the school is based on Porthmeor beach, you can enjoy these water sports with an instructor on almost every beach in St Ives – one of the most popular sessions is the guided sea kayaking tour which takes you through the crystal-clear waters of St Ives Bay.

For those wanting to explore the beauty of Cornish ocean by themselves, the Surf School offers a hire service including surfboards, wet suits and kayaks – which means you don’t have to drag your own equipment down to Cornwall so more space for souvenirs in the car! They also provide deckchairs, windbreaks and parasols for those wanting to watch the fun from the comfort of the sandy beach.

Open all year around and perfect for those wanting to try something new or experienced surfers to test out their skills, there is something for everyone at the only St Ives Surf School on Porthmeor beach.
