Our surf school in Mawgan Porth specialises in family and small group and private surf lessons. Since 2006 we have had a close relationship with the Bedruthan Hotel as we have a surf shack there. As a result we have seen surfers develop with us from young children into adults.

Surf Experience

Former professional surfer Nick Tiscoe leads an experienced team of instructors. Thanks to his varied experience Nick recruits instructors from around the world, this helps us bring a varied approach. All our instructors are active recreational and competitive surfers who go out in all conditions and travel far and wide.

Understanding the local conditions means we provide a great surfing experience during your surfing lesson. Cornish beaches have a large tidal range which means we can use our knowledge to give you the most success.

Jiu Jitsu


Surfing and Jiu jitsu have a long established relationship from the shores of Rio de Janeiro to all locations around the world. Many top surfers including 11 x world champion Kelly Slater practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If you are a current BJJ practitioner and visiting the area then get in touch to arrange a weekend of surfing and jiu jitsu.
