Ohana® Cornwall Family Surf Lessons in Newquay

Enjoy an outdoor family activity like no other and create memories to last a lifetime in the most idyllic setting on the Cornish Coast

As Ohana® Surf and Fitness is a  family-run surf school, it will come as no surprise that sharing our love of surfing with other families is one of our specialities. 

Our surf coaches are equally at home coaching lifelong surfers as they are total newbies. We have been introducing families of all backgrounds to the magic of surfing for years in Cornwall’s home of surfing, Newquay. 

Our family surf lessons are private lessons for just you and your loved ones, under the guidance and tuition of our passionate and highly experienced surf coaches.

With a strong focus on family fun, we also appreciate the importance of each person’s individual needs, according to their surfing level. We focus on teaching you the fundamentals of surfing or improving on your current surfing level, while also understanding the importance of educating you and your loved ones on how to stay safe in the sea as we help you to build your confidence amongst the waves.

Speak to our team about enhancing your package with climbing, coasteering, catamaran cruises, snorkelling excursions and more. Please see below.

Ohana® Surf & Fitness prides itself on having family values at the core of everything they do. Tehillah and her team of internationally qualified surf coaches, who are all trained lifeguards, have grown up by the sea and together they have decades of experience in the water as well as passing their love of surfing on to people of all backgrounds.

They are equally proficient at coaching established surfers as they are first-timers and love taking family groups under their wings while teaching them the fundamentals of surfing in a relaxed and professional environment. Ohana’s® teaching philosophy is based on creating joyous family memories to last a lifetime and we can’t wait to share that with you!


Absolutely fabulous week of learning to surf for our 3 kids! Tee was so fantastic with our children and they thoroughly enjoyed the lessons. Thank you for giving us peace of mind with your experience, water safety and enthusiasm. The kids can’t wait to surf with you next summer already!
