Cornish Surfing is a friendly local business that provides top quality surf lessons on Polzeath Beach. We have grown out of a love for riding the waves at Polzeath and for sharing this great skill with others. We have an intimate knowledge of the local surf environment allowing us to make the best use of tide, wind and swell conditions. Our instructors are all qualified and experienced, they will help bring the best out of your surfing experience.

We are based next to the Camel estuary on the amazing Dinham Farm Campsite where you can enjoy wide open spaces for a good game of rounders, a campfire under the stars weather permitting. Our base is a converted shipping container where we will meet and greet you and get you kitted up for your adventure.
