For over a decade, Wavehunters have been helping adventurous souls to discover this spectacular stretch of coastline. We’ve developed a range of immersive surf and marine adventures that get you up close and personal with the breath-taking beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, whatever your age or ability. So 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 us.

We know North Cornwall better than anyone and our mission is to share it with you.


Wavehunters teach surfing for all abilities. If you’ve never tried it before and are keen to take the first leap to your feet or you’re looking to master a maneuver or perfect your style, we can help.

Our surf school is situated on the beautiful Polzeath Beach, one of the safest and most reliable surf spots in Cornwall. We run two hour group lessons at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm every day, led by our experienced and friendly instructors. Our professional photographers will be on-hand to capture your surfing triumphs - and your classic wipe-outs!


Stand-up paddle-boarding is one of the fastest growing water sports in the world – and it’s easy to see why once you’ve tried it. It’s a super-accessible sport that gets you out on the ocean in no time, building your core strength and fitness, and whilst it’s easy to learn it offers adventures to last a lifetime. Wavehunters surf school on Polzeath beach is one of the first in the UK to teach SUP-ing, so whether it’s relaxation or exhilaration you’re seeking, let us get your SUP adventure started now.


Wavehunters offer a number of ways for you to explore the dramatic, rugged coastline of North Cornwall. For both experienced sea-goers and first-time sailors, our boat trips get you up close and personal with Cornwall’s unique heritage and stunning array of wildlife; from dolphins to seals, puffins to peregrine falcons. If you want something on the exhilarating side, try a sea safari on one of our 12 seater, 10 metre powerboats. Or if you want to take your time and explore independently, our hop-on, hop-off ferries are for you.


Wavehunters have a wide range of surf equipment available to hire all year round from our base on Polzeath Beach. If you want to practice what you’ve learnt in one of our lessons, or give something new a try – we’ve got everything you need to get you in the water and get going. Our staff will help you find the gear that’s right for you. Phone 01841 532339 to book or drop down to our HQ on Polzeath beach early to avoid disappointment
