From the beach


Hard and soft

Our boys (7&5) have been learning with Wavehunters for the last two years and have loved it. They can't wait for half term so they can get back in the surf!

Two fantastic improver lessons with Meg! Thoroughly enjoyed both lessons, learned bundles and feel like I really progressed!

Thom B - June 2023

Without a doubt a highlight of our holiday in Cornwall. My two boys, aged 11 and 17, loved it. The sea was choppy but this added to the trip and we felt safe with the expert and knowledgeable Andy, who did his best to find some wildlife for us. Who knew Sunfish visit U.K. waters? This is a must-do for any visit to the area.

  • Do your Surf Lessons go ahead even if it’s raining?

    Our sessions will go ahead whatever the weather however, in the unlikely event the beach is red flagged for safety reasons by the lifeguards or we feel that it is unsafe, we will postpone your session to a time that suits you or offer a refund.

  • How long is my surf lesson?

    Surf lessons are two hours long.

  • Is equipment included for surf/SUP lessons?

    Yes, we provide all equipment and leaving extra time before your session to get ready is recommended.

  • How many surf lessons would it take me to stand up?

    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 having a number of lessons to improve on stability, control, turning and length of ride.

  • What is the best tide to surf at Polzeath beach?

    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.

  • What is the youngest age you can teach surfing?

    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. During a private lesson we can accept any age. We also ask that a parent or teacher is available on shoreline for younger students.
