We endeavour to make all of our boat trips accessible to everyone and is usually from a pontoon at Padstow or Rock.

There is no definitive answer to this question as everyone is unique. However, we would hope to get everyone standing and getting a bit of a feel for the sport that we love so much in the first session. We suggest though having a number of lessons to improve on stability, control, turning and length of ride.

Within a private session we have had as young as 3! However, we would recommend 6 or 7 is a good age for starting out. We do have an age restriction on our group lessons of 7 years old to allow the Instructor to spread their time more evenly across the group. We also ask that a parent or teacher is available on shoreline for younger students.

We would highly recommend sticking to bigger foam boards until you have learned how to turn left and right on a smaller green waves. Moving onto smaller boards too soon can really hinder and hold back the speed of your improvement.

We are lucky to be able to run our lessons on Polzeath, as due to how flat the beach is we can teach throughout the tidal range.
