Off to Cornwall next week, been going on and off for 20 years but never done surf school, DS1 aged 11 wants to go to surf school, so where should we go and do we need to book? Is one day enough? He has a wet suit and wet shoes from endless Cub and Scout things and he can of course swim!

We are staying in the Lizard Pennisula near Coverack.

I don't know about surfing on the Lizard, but Coverack has a good windsurfing school - see Robin, down the steps behind Roskilly's. Really nice guy, good instructor, very safe and responsible. DD started there at 11 and returned for the
next 3 years (not going this year). He also offers kayaking.

gwithian beach is great for learning to surf ..... gwithian academy of surf operate there and you can book lessons as and when ... they usually recommend having a lesson then practising for a bit before having another lesson but it's up to you - probably about 45 mins from lizard but a good beginners beach - all kit included in the price

a bit nearer to you is praa sands, they have a good surf school on the beach but the surf can be a bit stronger than at gwithian
