Wavehunters Surf School is based in Polzeath, Cornwall. This is one of the safest beaches in Cornwall and Polzeath offers fantastic surf all year round. Join the ever-growing popular surf culture with our team of friendly and experienced instructors.
Lessons run daily for two hours at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. We recognise the importance of safety and pride ourselves in keeping our staff to student ratios lower than the recommended industry limit. Our own professional photographer will be on hand to capture your classic wipe-outs during your lesson as well as your first unforgettable stand-up ride on a wave.
Wavehunters excels in providing people of all ages specifically tailored surf lessons to suit their individual needs. We understand that everyone learns differently. Through our many years of progressive surf coaching we have developed a range of unique techniques and a personalised style to help each and every surfer understand the waves, get to their feet and start controlling the board in a friendly, safe and relaxed atmosphere. We have fantastic options for children to learn together in a safe and fun environment
The Wavehunters Kids Club runs every morning in the school holidays at 10am and is specially designed for getting kids into the water, with other children, in a friendly, safe, and relaxed atmosphere. Underneath the core principle of learning to surf we integrate surf lifesaving and team games. Children need to be 6 years or older to surf without an adult accompanying them in the water. It is advisable that someone is on the beach or close by just in case it gets a bit too chilly. The lessons are £28 a session and block booking discounts are available.
The ‘Grom’ Club runs every week on Tuesdays at 4.30pm and Sundays at 4pm and is designed for local children or long seasonal staying guests. This club is designed to help improve surfing skills in a safe environment whilst also creating surfing groups amongst the ‘Groms’ who look out for each other whenever they are in the sea. Lots of these kids come to us with their different schools and it is great for them to meet new, like-minded, friends before they move on to secondary school. Grom Club membership is £30, including a Wavehunters Hoody and Wavehunters discount card, and sessions are £5 thereafter otherwise one-off sessions are £20
Due to our commitment in sharing our passion for the sea we now also offer Sea Safaris with our new venture Wavehunters Marine. We will be offering 2 hour Sea Safaris on our 12 seat, 9 metre, rib. Our expert, local, seamen will be showing the unique heritage and diverse marine and bird wildlife of the rugged North Coast.
Our sea safaris are proving a great way to gain a different perspective of our much loved coastline and this year we have had increased numbers of cetaceans. Depending on the time of year you should expect to see Basking Sharks, Seals, Dolphins, Porpoises, Puffins, Gannets and many other varieties of seabirds; we know where they hang out!
