About Us

Who We Are

Operating since 2016, Set up by Head Coach Mike Paterson, a passionate professional surfer / wakeboarder who has surfed competitively & for fun all around the world since he was 12, that’s over 27 years of experience! He’s won the National titles in South Africa/New Zealand/Italy, European Championship Medals and coached the Italian Junior team.

Our Speciality

Being a mobile surf school gives us an edge and the posibility to take you to the best beaches on any given day. As well as giving complete beginners their first taste of surfing, we specialise in coaching to a more intermediate and advanced level in small groups (max 5 people). Many of our customers are those who really want to learn to surf, and gain the skills, ocean knowledge and fitness to be competent enough to surf all over the world. And importantly, we are specialists not generalists – we only teach surfing, not kayaking, SUP, Coasteeering, etc

Our Coaching Team

As well as Mike, head coach who mainly teaches the intermediate & upper level lessons, we also have a dedicated team of surf coaches, who teach all levels from complete beginners through to advanced surfers. The team are fully qualified with ISA certification as well as being qualified beach lifeguards, & have many years of surfing & coaching experience – invaluable when sharing their knowledge with our customers. The whole coaching team have a passion of wanting to share their love of surfing and the ocean with all our customers

Where we Teach

We use Gyllyngvase Beach as our primary teaching location if there's a wave, which is Falmouth's main beach near the town centre. Its an ideal beach for learning and progression, as its less exposed than many of the other beaches. Depending on surf forecasts and weather reports we do move our lessons further away to our beaches on the North Coast (Portreath,Porthtowan,Gwithian) and Further down the South Coast to Praa Sands. We strive to find you the best waves to coach you in on the given day. Occasionally we may use other beaches, depending on the type of lesson.
