Who are we?
Established in 2005, Ticket to Ride started life running surf instructor courses in South Africa to give gap year surfers the chance to travel the coast from Cape Town to Durban, combining learning to surf with the chance to put something back into the local community. Ten years on and our original trip is still leading the way as the most popular surf adventure course that we run.
Having built up the experience and reputation necessary, we expanded our surf instructor courses, surf adventures and surf camps across the world. Choosing our surf stops based on personal experience.
In 2009 we opened our own surf school on Perranporth beach in Cornwall with the ethos of being more than just another surf school. With our own beach side premises and a strong focus on customer service we were recognised as the leading surf school at the 2012 and 2014 Cornish Tourism Awards. From the success of our Perranporth surf school, we went on to open a second surf school in Newquay.
In 2011 we acquired Basecamp (est. 2002) the leading provider of Ski and Snowboard instructor courses and training in France and Canada.
Four winter seasons later and we have decided to bring the snowboard side of Basecamp over to Ticket to Ride. The thinking here is to bring the board sport ethic shared by both surfers and snowboarders together as one.
Today Ticket to Ride is proud to offer instructor courses, adventures, tours and camps designed and operated specifically for surfers and snowboarders throughout the world.
Whether we're in the water or up a mountain, the experience and inspiration that we now have as an international team keeps us one step ahead of the game. We are the number one provider of ultimate training and unlimited adventuring for surfers and snowboarders looking to live out their dreams across the world.
