Ohana® Cornwall Surf Lessons in Newquay

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

Group surf lessons for beginner, intermediate and advanced surfers in Newquay. 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 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 and love for surfing for many years. Whether you are a first-time surfer, ready to perfect your pop-up or an experienced sea dog who wants to fine tune your cutback, our team of internationally qualified surf coaches will help you to develop your skills, build your confidence in the water and create lasting memories on the beautiful Cornish Coast.

Our surf lessons are taught in groups of no more than five people per instructor. We like to keep our group sizes small in order to maximize safety and ensure quality tuition. 

Our surf lessons are open to everyone, regardless of you experience or age. During your surf lesson, you will be joined by fellow surfers of a similar skill level to you. So not only will you be learning a new sport or honing your current surf skills but also meeting new people (and making friends for life)!

Our surf lessons are taught in a fun, sociable and relaxed environment by passionate and highly experienced surf coaches. Join us today and kick start a lifelong passion for surfing. Private surf lessons are also available for individuals, couples or groups. 

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

Tee is the absolute best person and surf coach and really made our 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 the best surfing experience!

Fantastic few days of surfing with Tee in Cornwall! I wanted to improve my surfing and make 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
