Surf Lessons  

We teach surfing for all abilities on our beach at Polzeath. If you’ve never tried it before and are keen to take the first leap to your feet or you’re looking to master a manoeuvre or perfect your style, we can help. 

Group lessons are £40 per person and private lessons £100 per person.

Surf Hire

We have a wide range of surf equipment available to hire from our base on Polzeath beach. We also offer a delivery service straight to your door. 

We highly recommend you pre-book your gear, however we also have a wide range of surfboards, wetsuits and apparel on Polzeath beach, so you can also just grab and go. Our surf equipment comes in a range of sizes and styles, for winter and summer, kids and grown ups.


Whether you want to maintain your fitness or this is the start of a new fitness journey, we have something for you! Our classes range from high tempo intervals, cardio and resistance, through to rewarding and revitalising yoga and core. Come and join us on Polzeath beach from 12th April 2021 for what can surely only be described as the best way to start the day. Also available are private sessions at a time and location to suit you.
