Surf and Sea | St. Moritz Hotel and Spa Near Rock & Polzeath

Being perched between 2 golden beaches and overlooking the mouth of the River Camel means that you can spend as much time in the water, as you do out. Luckily enough we have a troop of expert guides and instructors on speed dial so you can flex your inner Kelly Slater and soak up some essential vitamin 'sea.'

Padstow & Polzeath

These guys are the go-to lads and ladies for surf lessons, SUP tours, sea-safari boat trips and board hire. Adults can have a private surf lesson for £100 and under 12’s get a discount off group lessons when booking through our guest host at St Moritz. Also highly recommended are the Sea Safari trips, they are a fab way for the whole family to explore the dramatic, rugged coastline of North Cornwall. Or, if you want something a little more fast-paced book a trip on one of their 12 seater, 10 metre powerboats.

George’s Surf School

Based 2-minutes down the road in Polzeath George’s is headed up by George Stoy, a ex-stockbroker who quit the rat-race and went back to his adventure roots by setting up the private tuition surf school. Only teaching one-on one or small groups, George’s are all about bespoke lessons combining their experience with a carefully structured methodology. Whilst catering for the complete beginner they also run , improver, longboard and shortboard coaching programs with the option for video coaching- a sure fire way to improve your surf skills.

Camel Ski School

Camel Ski School based on the River Camel in Rock make use of the wide open water and their fleet of boats to provide groups with water skiing, wake boarding, boat trips, paddle boarding and kayaking experiences. Also on the summer schedule are their Paddle and Prosecco sessions aimed at active ladies that like a drink, we assume.

We advise booking your surf lessons before you arrive. This can be done through our Guest Host by emailing
