Our Surf School usually teaches from May to November.

Hell's Mouth Surf School continues to offer the best quality, fully qualified, insured and regulated surf school on the Peninsula. We have been giving surf lessons since 1996 and have helped thousands of people with their first surfing experience. We use International Surfing Association accredited coaches to guide you from absolute beginner to competent intermediate.

The surf school normally runs from May to November (once the sea is warmer than 10c). We teach mostly at weekends but every day through the school holidays. Mid week lessons can be arranged at any time with four or more people. Hell's Mouth Surf School Ltd is run by and through West Coast Surf Shop.

International Surf Association qualified instructors will teach groups of up to a maximum of 10 people but we prefer to keep mixed groups to 8 people. (With the demise of the BSA, instructors are now qualified as International Surf Association trained coaches and maintain the same high level of qualifications and competence).

Individuals, over 8 years old, can join a scheduled lesson or friends can take as many places as they require. Wetsuits and foam surfboards are used and included in the price of £35 per person. Lessons last 2 - 2 1/2 hours.

Private Lessons: We can do slightly shorter private lessons for those who would rather not join a mixed group. This costs £180 for 1 to 5 people and includes all the equipment. This can also be tailored for better abilities.
