At Big Green Surf School we pride ourselves in giving loads of personal attention in the water to ensure you're getting the most out of your surfing. We specialise in small groups (max 6 with 1 coach), simple and achievable techniques for all abilities, the best equipment available, incredibly passionate & experienced coaches as well as 2 of the best locations available for your Surf or SUP experience. You can now find us in Newquay at Base Surf Lodge where we can offer fantastic Surf & Stay packages at great prices, as well as our new base over at the National Trust's Crantock Beach where we are the only surf school! Perfect to find some quiet space during the busy peak summer. Come and join us and see what all the fuss is about!

So stoked that you like our Crantock setup - we certainly think the smaller groups provide a lot more opportunity for tuition and it's a lot more fun for both students AND coaches! Hope to see you again for some more waves!

Dale is an excellent instructor and we both managed to stand up on the boards by the end of the 2 hour session. Really good fun and would definitely return.
