About our surf lessons

Our surf school is based within the grounds of the Bedruthan Steps Hotel. We overlook the breathtaking beach of Mawgan Porth near Newquay, a first class beach for you to learn to surf in Cornwall. Country & Townhouse recently named us one of the UK’s best surf schools!

Learn to surf in Mawgan Porth

Mawgan Porth is similar to many Cornish beaches with consistent surf throughout the tide. However our beach also enjoys relatively uncrowded conditions, which allows students a more enjoyable learning experience.

Students like to catch as many waves as possible to improve and Mawgan Porth rarely suffers from a lack of waves. Therefore more waves for you to practice on, resulting in more success and fun!

Head coach Nick Tiscoe started The Surf Club Cornwall In 2006. Nick is a professional pro surfer, who has competed internationally. And he is a father to a keen surfing family too! Nick and his team look to share their experience to help you, your family or friends develop your surfing. 

All instructors are ISA qualified as well as qualified beach lifeguards.

Qualified, insured instructors will look after you in the water allowing you to concentrate on enjoying yourself. All instructors are very experienced surfers, teaching hundreds of individuals and families to surf each year. Having spent the majority of their lives surfing in Cornwall they can help you get the best out of your surfing experience.
