There are numerous Surf Schools situated around the popular Surfing location of Newquay, but one we have to highly recommend can be found tucked round the corner from Fistral at Crantock Bay. Crantock Bay Surf School is situated on a beautiful, sheltered National Trust beach and offers not only Surf lessons, but also Paddleboard lessons and Kayak Tours up the River Gannel, which runs alongside the school and out into the sea at Crantock.
Owned and operated by Rob Smalls, the Crantock Bay Surf School is set in a stunning location and is one of the most family friendly beaches in the area. Rob is extremely passionate in his work and the school’s main focus is safety. This is apparent from the moment you meet Rob as he drums in the important safety messages to all beginners but also in the fact that Rob uses a higher instructor to student ratio than most Surf schools.
With 35 years of Surfing experience under his belt, the passion Rob has for the sport is as strong as ever and all instructors that work alongside Rob at the school are all RLSS Beach Lifeguard and ISA Instructor qualified, so you can rest assured you really are in the safest of hands.
So if you are in the Newquay area and are looking for a family friendly and safe place to learn to Surf or fancy trying your hand at a spot of Paddleboarding, or even a leisurely Kayak trip up the beautiful River Gannel then the Crantock Bay Surf School is THE place to visit. The school offers lessons for complete beginners, private coaching and even family lessons.
The school is open 7 days a week and for more details on all the activities available at the Crantock Bay Surf School and to see the prices for the various lessons on offer take a look at the official website here.
