Welcome to KERNOW. The home of surfing in Britain!

2020 sees our Family Surf School & Adventure Centre take a giant leap forward, we are making conscious decisions to improve the Sport of Surfing and Outdoor Adventures, ethically, by leaving a positive footprint wherever we go, whether it’s leaving the beach the way we find it, pristine, or moving towards supplying products less toxic to our oceans and the planet, we’re getting involved!

We are making a serious commitment to help bring about positive change to our environment. This is the year we begin implementing small changes that make big differences. So, please stay tuned as we introduce incredible new opportunities to the surfing and outdoor adventure world, in Cornwall in 2020.

Learning to surf is not just about knowing what board to buy and where to be in the line up! It’s about being responsible,it’s about giving back and it’s about being aware of your natural surroundings and the impact we have on the natural world! Also, it’s about maintaining clean oceans that we can all continue to enjoy and surf!

So with this in mind let’s go surfing, and whilst we surf we will learn, from our expert team of coaches in perfect beginner waves, we’ll practise yoga with professional yoga instructors, rest in at the comfortable Reef Surf Lodges, meet like-minded surfers and travellers from all over the world, and we’ll explore the most south westerly tip of England.

It matters not whether you are travelling alone, with your family or friends, in small or large groups, we have something for everyone. Our highly qualified surf instructors and lifeguards all hold valid ISA Level 1 and 2 surf coaching certificates. 5 Star Kayaking certificates, or the necessary qualifications for the activity and tour you’d like to experience.

With 27 years of experience we understand the necessity to learn in a safe and progressive environment.
We teach absolute beginners to surf, we take intermediate surfers and turn them into advanced surfers, and advanced surfers to expert levels of surfing through our proven system of coaching! Using only appropriate and trusted equipment, by stocking the best boards and equipment for all surf levels in all surf conditions.

We are ethical, we are responsible, we are dedicated and above all passionate about our adventures and our lifestyle. We are committed to delivering the best surf camps, adventures and coaching sessions in Cornwall. Our sessions are designed to build confidence, educate and bring out the best you can be, in all ocean conditions, in a fun easy to learn environment.
