Ohana® Cornwall Kids Surf Lessons in Newquay

As you enjoy the beauty of the cornish coast, your kids will kindle a love for the sea and surfing that will last a lifetime with Cornwall’s family friendly surf school

Here at Ohana® Surf and Fitness, we are all really just ‘big kids’, which is why we love introducing kids to surfing! With it’s wide-open beaches and rolling waves for all surfing levels, Cornwall is the ideal place for kids to experience surfing for the first time or improve on their current skills in a relaxed and fun environment.

Tehillah and her team have all been surfing from a young age and know what an amazing sport and hobby surfing is and how it can become a lifelong passion.

When working with children, our main goal is not only to create a positive and joyous early surfing experience but also help our future generation of wave riders to build confidence in the sea, while educating them on how to stay safe amongst the waves.

Safety and quality tuition is our priority, which is why our kids surf lessons are taught in small private groups (4 students per instructor), with private 1:1 tuition also available.
