We also have an onsite surf shop selling the latest Roxy and Quiksilver clothes, wetsuits, bodyboards, surf accessories and beach essentials.
Our surf school is accredited by the National Governing Body Surfing England and is the only one based at South Fistral Beach. All of our instructors are fully qualified lifeguards, Surfing England, International Surfing Association qualified with years of experience teaching, surfing and some competing at a high level on the UK and European surfing scene. We teach all levels and ages from complete beginner to advanced outback lessons catching green waves, learning turns and maneuvers. Our maximum instructor student ratio is 1:8 on group lessons, but we do provide 1:1 and small group tuition for families or individuals who either want to work on certain skills or prefer tuition in smaller groups. Group lessons go out at pre-planned times everyday while private lessons can be arranged at a time to suit you and your needs. Surf photography and filming is also available upon request.
Coasteering is the alternative adventure along the Cornish coastal path. One minute you can be traversing across barnacle-covered ledges, and the next you find yourself jumping into the sea and swimming through caves. The adrenaline-filled adventure will take you from secluded beaches to smugglers coves and secret caves inhabited by the local seals, dolphins and other marine life. A mix of climbing, traversing, sea swimming and caving, coasteering is an excellent activity for those seeking something different from a beach holiday. Fistral Headland is the ideal location to take groups of all abilities from your first time coasteering to those seeking the more challenging and adrenaline filled adventure.
