Gwithian Academy of Surfing

Gwithian Academy of Surfing is one of only three, Academy of Surfing Instructors, Accredited Surf School’s in Britain. Set right on the beautiful beach at Gwithian, just a 15-minute drive from St Ives and Carbis Bay.

The surf school is popular with all sorts of surfers ranging from beginners on their first lesson right up to elite performance analysis of the British Junior Surfing Squad. They even teach people how to become surf instructors and run at least three ASI Level 1,2 and 3 Surf Instructor Courses every year. So your can be happy you’re learning with the best.

Back in ’99, the surf school was run from the back of a trailer on the cliffs by the Gwithian Beach lifeguard hut. The surf school traded here for 6 years before moving to the beautiful beachside location in the grounds of the Rockpool Bar complex that Gwithian Academy of Surfing now runs from.
We were sad to see the old trailer go but when we realised that we could offer changing facilities, a bespoke teaching room and outside shower as well as our surf shop we got over it pretty quickly!
