Bespoke Surf


  1. One to one £120
  2. Two to one £150
  3. Three to one £180 
  4. Four to one £200

  1. Available all year round

  3. More choice of start times
  4. Lesson tempo is set for you

Bespoke surf sessions are for individuals, couples, friends, parent and child and family groups that would like their own tailored lesson. 

We can offer you a wider choice of start times (maybe you'd like a sunrise or sundowner session?) and can provide a more focused learning experience - ideal if you think that you'll have different needs to clients on a standard group lesson. 

Bespoke lessons are the best option for those that want to learn to surf.

What to bring

Please bring a towel each, and swimsuits to wear under the wetsuits. Everything else is provided


An eagerness to get stuck in is the main requirement. Pool swimming skills don't translate in any meaningful way to surfing.

Fistral Beach is gently sloping and we teach in standing depth water.


Your friendly surf coach will be waiting to meet you at the school, and will provide you with your wetsuit. We have changing rooms on site.

Once suited, it's a short walk down to the beach with your coach for a quick theory session on the sand, and then the surfing experience begins. Non-participating family members are welcome to come along and be present and watch from the shore.

Your surf coach will help you get as many waves as you want and develop your skills as much as possible in the time available, the work rate is up to you.

After the session, you'll head back up to the school with your coach, get changed back into your land-based clothing and can look forward to relaxing for the rest of the day with a post-surf glow radiating from yourself
