Lessons are run from Trevone beach, as it is such a small but popular beach we only offer surf lessons either early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the crowds.

In the mornings we usually aim to start by 8.30 and afterwards we reccomend trying the Cornish breakfast at Trevone beach Cafe to refuel ready for the rest of the day, we an even arrange a discounted board hire rate for the rest of the day so that you can practice your new skills!

In the evenings we time the lessons to end at sun set and at an extra cost we can arrange for Trevone Beach Cafe  to have some food and drinks ready for you to enjoy as you watch the sun sink beneath the waves..

If there are no waves we may run paddleboarding instead but we will still focus on skills needed to surf and beach/surf safety, and hopefully will still be able to catch some waves as paddleboards were originally designed for surfing when the waves were to small for regular surfboards.

Your safety is important to us so if we deem that the weather or sea conditions are unsafe then we will have to cancel or postpone the session, we will let you know as soon as possible, if you are unable to come on an alternative day then we will of course give you a full refund, however we cannot accept responsibility for any other costs incurred such as travel or accommodation costs.
