Why Choose us?


Best School Around ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Been taking my son for about a year now and his surfing has come on leaps and bounds. Ben and Elena are both fantastic, and have the perfect aptitude for teaching. Can’t recommend them enough, it’s always the highlight of my sons week.

Smaller groups equal a much more relaxed, organised and enjoyable experience. Here at eskinzo we welcome a maximum of between 1-6 people of similar ability per instructor within our (group lessons) to create a fun, safe & memorable small group atmosphere. Ratios do vary but on average we try to maintain a Ratio of 1-3 of mixed ability.


We are passionate about coaching and this passion is reflected within our lessons, quality surf coaching consisting of personally tailored surf theory accompanied with optional photo & video analysis will get you surfing right away, Even if you have never tried before. (Intermediate/Advanced Lessons)




Cornwall has a vast selection of surfing beaches, perfect for beginners & intermediates with summer time conditions usually consisting of lighter winds, & slightly smaller waves this is a great time for learners & improvers! 


We'll turn your holiday into a "Proper" Cornish surf trip in no time. We are one of the few schools in Cornwall to offer lessons over multiple locations, In addition to this we can provide an optional photo package to most lessons so that you can takeaway your memories made with us. 



What to Expect on arrival?

First ever Surfing Lesson at Gwithian Beach?

Arriving at the school van in Gwithian Beach Car Park for a Surfing Lesson or North Quay Hayle Harbour for a Paddle Boarding Lesson you will be welcomed by either myself (Ben) or Elena. After an introduction and quick overview of your activity ahead we will jump into wetsuits ready for your lesson.

The atmosphere is always relaxed & social we like our guests feel as comfortable as possible so at this stage we will be happy to put any fears or worries to rest. Remember you don't need any previous experience and you will have the full support from your instructor throughout the lesson. The majority of our lessons are taught at waist to chest depth water. Once the whole group is happy & raring to go we will make our way down onto Gwithian's famous golden sands.

Your lesson will be broken down into two parts & we will explain & demonstrate everything in manageable stages. First part we will cover beach safety, how to manage your surfboard & catching waves for the first time & the second will consist of techniques & tips on how to get to your feet whilst riding a wave back to the shore.

You don't need to be a strong swimmer to join these sessions. Just up & ready for giving it good go!

Loads Of Fun!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Had a lesson with Ben and had the time of my life! Great instructor, was always in control while letting us (me and my gf) get stuck in and try to surf over and over again. Had great tips which helped me get up on my first lesson! Recommended to anyone, was a great experience.
