Beginner Group Surf Lessons

If you haven’t surfed for quite a while or have never surfed before the group beginner lessons are ideal for you.

You will cover everything from how to carry the surfboard, catching a wave and various ways of standing up.

The lesson is broken down to beach and ocean elements with a most of your time spent in the water.

Our location of being perched right on Fistral Beach means you will get more time in the sea than other schools can offer.

All our instructors are qualified beach lifeguards and ISA surf instructors with a real passion for surfing.

All of our lessons are 2 hours long, and always include use of all of the equipment which you need.

“I chose Fistral Beach Surf School because it seemed they spent more time in the water. A great decision on my part we learnt so much and made us feel like we were really achieving, our instructor, Coco was so helpful and supportive. I was so happy with how I did during my lesson.”
