Wat je gaat doen

Arriving at our surf school at The Unicorn On The Beach, Car Park in Porthtowan for a Surfing Lesson you will be welcomed by either myself (Ben) or a member of the eskinzo team.

After an introduction and quick overview of your activity ahead we will jump into wetsuits ready for your experience.

The atmosphere is always relaxed & social we like our guests feel as comfortable as possible so at this stage we will be happy to put any fears or worries to rest.

Remember you don't need any previous experience and you will have the full support from your instructor throughout the lesson. The majority of our lessons are taught at waist depth water.

Once the whole group is happy & raring to go we will make our way down onto Porthtowan famous golden sands.

Your lesson will be broken down into two parts & we will explain & demonstrate everything in manageable stages.

First part we will cover beach safety, how to manage your surfboard & catching waves for the first time, the second will consist of techniques & tips on how to get to your feet whilst riding a wave back to the shore.

You don't need to be a strong swimmer to join these sessions. Just up & ready for giving it good go.
Other things to note
Guests must be able to swim a minimum 50m

We love the ocean - and being able to introduce & share quality surf and paddle boarding experiences with those wishing to get into the sea has always been a great privilege.

Both Myself (Ben) & (Tony) your fully qualified instructors & Founders of Eskinzo Surf School - Porthtowan have worked within the Cornish and International surf coaching/surf camp industry for over ten years.

During this time, we've been fortunate enough to work in some of the most beautiful surf locations on earth, meeting and teaching an abundance of fantastic characters along the way.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We have carefully chosen Porthtowan Beach due to the quality of waves this spot can provide. The vast size of Porthtowan beach at low tide allows us to teach with plenty of space in quieter picturesque surroundings & offers an off the beaten track feel at high tide.

Fantastic experience with a small group of people. The instructors were extremely knowledgable and personalised the experience for each member of the group. Me and my boyfriend had a great time and can’t wait to come back and try again! Beach was gorgeous even through the bizarre weather conditions. Thank you Eskinzo!

It was our first time as a family surfing and some of us were a bit apprehensive initially but Hamish soon made us feel at ease and relaxed to give surfing a good go! We all had fun! Excellent location and perfect for beginners-we will definitely surf or body board again! Thank you.

I could not recommend this experience more! We were complete beginners, but our instructor Hamish made us feel safe and welcomed from the very beginning. The storytelling and instruction across the session was second to none and has left us keen to try surfing again soon.

I had a really awesome experience surfing with Ben & Tony. They were very knowledgable and encouraging we all got to learn something new. We were very fortunate in that the weather conditions could not have been better and Porthtowan beach was an incredible place to do this. I know there are many other beaches in Cornwall with this experience, but Porthtowan has something about it that trumps the others, especially when the tide is low and the sky is clear. I would feel confident carrying on surfing taking what I learnt from this lesson. Thanks again guys!

Great surfing experience at Porthtowan with Ben as our instructor for the day. He was incredibly knowledgable and we learnt a lot about surfing and beach safety and Ben made it fun! Ben was really friendly and made us both feel at ease (as we were complete beginners to surfing!) would definitely recommend.
