This is an awesome surf school, great bunch of laid back guys in a great place. With each lesson being 2.5 hrs long you get plenty of time on the water. Highly recommended.

The children surfed last summer in the canaries and were determined to surf here in Cornwall. Pete and the guys are chilled and groovy, a very relaxed approach that puts everyone at ease. We chose here on a recommendation and were glad we did. Mawgan porth is a great beach a little away from the hustle and bustle of Newquay... More

Just got back from a family trip to Mawgan Porth, went surfing with King Surf on the last day. BEST DAY EVER! Really lovely guys, hired wetsuits/gloves/boots/hat and took us surfing all morning. Totally not cold despite being mid-february, and the waves are better than the summer. A real tonic to an otherwise cold, dreary winter and cannot recommend these... More

Booked a corporate event and the Team at King Surf looked after us from start to finish - a great day out even though the weather wasn't on our side everyone was energised and our instructor led the group better than our management ;D !! It's a breath of fresh air when you commit to an activity like Surfing and... More

Such a great surf school. The Super friendly and knowledgeable instructors really look after students and get them surfing in no time. This is the third time I've been and I've always had a great time. Also such a beautiful place in mawgan porth. Perfect spot. Can't recommend it enough.

The instructors at King Surf got the tuition level perfect, enough info without overloading, enough guidance, enough time to practice. Wow is all I can say. They got me addicted to surfing. I will definitely be returning next year.

see them on the beach! great part of the community - really care about the sea and being safe - always approachable and aware - even if you aren't in their class. However a lesson is really worth it - even if you think you can surf - so you can learn how to read the sea at Mawgan Porth... More

Just back from a week of surfing with Kingsurf. Thanks to Alice and the team for such an enjoyable experience. With a young family (pre-surf age) we did couple lessons sharing the 2 hour session between us-one surfed whilst the other played on the beach with the kids. The coaching was excellent and the progression we made was beyond expectations.... More

My husband and 15 yr old teenage twins Lily & Olly booked a beginners lesson for the afternoon of Sunday 21st August.

So great to see you guys back again for a second lesson :) Archie, in particular, will be stoked that you guys loved it enough to give it another go. Next time we should get Poppy into a kid's rash vest & join in for the full lesson! See you guys next year hopefully! More
