Polzeath Beach Surf School

Polzeath Beach House is proud to partner with Wavehunters offering guests a wide range of surf equipment to hire all year round from their base on Polzeath beach. They have been teaching the sport they have been passionate about since they opened in 2002.

They know one important fact that stands out is everyone learns to surf differently. So, whether you choose a one-to-one, a group lesson or a course, experienced surf coaches will tailor their instruction to your individual needs. Wavehunters knows that everyone should share in the joy of riding waves and they call it “surf stoke”.

Whether you’re feeling the exhilarating power of the waves beneath your feet for the first time or the fiftieth time, or exploring the beautiful, marine-life rich waters by boat, or enjoying a moment of serenity on a stand up paddleboard, you’re in good hands with Wavehunters



Wavehunters offer SUP lessons with experienced instructors in both flat-water and surf conditions.
Flatwater SUP-ing is accessible to almost anyone, and the large buoyant boards they use are an excellent way to explore the ocean and get close to its marine life – while working out muscles you never even knew you had!

Surf SUP-ing is an addictive and exhilarating way to ride waves. The longer boards and greater paddle speed enable you to catch smaller waves and ride them for longer – without even having to pop up! (These lessons require booking in advance but are also dependant on conditions on the day).
