Fantastic location absolutely beautiful area, which made me falling of the surfboard all the time no big deal. Having said that the second lesson was more promising, as I seemed able to stay on the board, be it just kneeling most off the time. Matt...More

This is an awesome surf school, great bunch of laid back guys in a great place. With each lesson being 2.5 hrs long you get plenty of time on the water. Highly recommended.

The instructors at King Surf got the tuition level perfect, enough info without overloading, enough guidance, enough time to practice. Wow is all I can say. They got me addicted to surfing. I will definitely be returning next year.

Hi thinking about coming down to Cornwall in the summer for a week with 17 year old son. He did a bit of surfing out on California last year, 2/3 hour lessons everyday for a week and loved it. Over August presumably you have daily lessons he could join in on? He is keen not to be oldest among younger children, do you have lessons for older teens? do you run open sessions when they can hire the equipment and be loosely supervised in the sea? what are the prices? does it need tobe booked in advance? if its easier to call rather than reply i'm on 07791 092339 Thanks, Lorna
