Global Boarders

Quite literally on our doorstep, at the Sunset Surf Café, Global Boarders are our go-to partner for surf lessons, coasteering, and electric bike hire.

Led by Chris Brown, Head Coach, and current England Team Coach. Chris’s team of professional coaches offers award-winning surf lessons on Gwithian beach and coasteering adventures near Praa Sands, just 30 minutes drive away on the south Cornwall coast.

Safety is paramount. All Global Boarders instructors and guides are experienced surfers, lifeguard trained, and are DBS checked. In current circumstances, COVID-19 procedures are in place following Sport England guidance.

Surfing at Three Mile Beach

With one of the UK’s best surf beaches on the doorstep, there’s no better time to learn to surf or perfect your skills. Our surf groups are limited in number to enable personalised and safe tuition. For your comfort and safety the team works closely with RNLI lifeguards and monitor weather and tidal conditions.

One-to-one lessons

There’s no better way to learn than with professional one-to-one surf tuition from a professional surf school. One of the Global Boarders’ team will tailor a 2-hour lesson to your specific needs ranging from absolute beginner to pro.

Private Family Surf Lessons

Why not try a private, bespoke 2-hour surf lesson for a family of up to 6 people. Aimed at beginner to improver surfers, they are great for families with younger children as you can learn at your own pace in a safe, fun, hands-on way.

Five-day family surf experience

This is an excellent opportunity to really perfect your family’s surfing skills. Enjoy a 2-hour family surf lesson for 5 days for up to 6 people. A great opportunity to see real progress in your surfing and enjoy a little bit of healthy family competition!
