Ohana Cornwall Surf Lessons

Surf the best waves, meet new people, learn a new skill and experience the Celtic Sea in the most exhilarating way imaginable. 

Often referred to as the Cornish Riviera, Cornwall has built a reputation as the home of English Surfing. With picturesque views, idyllic surf conditions and an amazing energy, Cornwall is the perfect location to enjoy your surfing experience in the UK.

At Ohana Surf and Fitness, we have been sharing our passion for surfing for many years. Whether you are a first time surfer or an experienced sea dog, our team of internationally qualified instructors can help you to develop your skills and create lasting memories on the beautiful Cornish Coast.

Surf lessons are taught in groups of no more than five people per instructor. We like to keep group sizes small in order to maximise tuition and provide an attentive experience. Ohana Surf and Fitness provide all surfboards, wetsuits and expert tuition. 

Surf lessons are open to everyone, regardless of you experience or age. When you book a surf lesson/lessons with us you will be placed with with other fellow surfers of a similar ability who have booked lessons with us. So not only will you be learning a new sport or honing your current skills but also meeting new people (and making friends for life)! Private surf lessons are also available for individuals, couples or groups.  Our surf lessons are taught in a fun, sociable and relaxed environment. Join us today and kick start a lifelong passion for surfing.

Tee is a super lovely person and really made my trip to Cornwall this summer one to remember! I really like that Tee teaches in small groups, unlike many of the other schools. We felt very safe and received so much tuition which was excellent. Thank you so much for changing my life and for all the laughs!

Fantastic few days of surfing with Tee in Cornwall! I wanted to improve my surfing and meet some new friends. We had perfect conditions every day and I met some great people surfing in my group. I feel like I improved more during my 4 days with Tee than I have over the past 2 years of surfing! Highly recommended! Thanks Tee
