Wavehunters was born in 2003, with a minibus service transporting surfers around North Cornwall in search of waves. And so began what would become our life’s work: sharing the place we know and love with fellow adventurous souls. We opened our own surf school on the sands of Polzeath beach the following year, on a mission to inspire and excite and educate surfers old and new. We must have got something right: we’re now one of the biggest surf schools in the UK.
It didn’t take us long to realize that surfing was not the only way to empower people from near and far to discover this spectacular stretch of coastline. We were one of the first surf schools to embrace SUP-ing when it burst onto British shores and in 2013 we diversified further by setting up our marine adventures arm. Now we’re pretty confident that we’ve got an ocean adventure to suit everyone.
So why not swing by our café for a coffee, or pop into one of our shops for a chat about where we can take you next? We’re an enthusiastic as well as an expert bunch, and one of our team members will be happy to help you find an adventure to suit you. Because we may have come a long way from our humble beginnings, but our ethos hasn’t changed a bit: whether you’re surfing, or SUP-ing or on a sea safari; whatever your age or wherever you’re from; we are here to help you to discover and experience the wonder of this extraordinary coastline.
