Home of the UK surfing


With perfect beginner beach breaks and gnarlier reefs and points, this epic costline has something for every surfer. Our surf schools in Newquay bay and Perranporth beach are ideal locations to learn to surf, or take a training course and get qualified.

We don’t do battery farm surf lessons – everybody receives personal advice and coaching no matter how big or small the group is. Discounts are available for school groups, corporate clients, stag/hen parties and families.

Private lessons are available for individuals and small groups wanting to take their surfing to the next level. For those surfers looking to start a new career in the industry, Surf Instructor and Beach Lifeguard Courses are available throughout the season. Check out the 2015 dates & rate here.

Have you tried SUPing yet? Stand Up Paddleboarding is one of the most fun and easily accessable watersports around, and we offer SUP tours around Newquay Bay and the beautiful Ganel River. 


Newquay: The Ticket to Ride Surf School in Newquay is located just 50 meters from the consistent surf breaks of Newquay Bay. We have private access to Great Western and Towan Beach via steps just a few metres from the changing rooms. There’s plenty of parking and a stunning viewing point for the day’s surf.

Perranporth: This growing seaside town situated ten miles south of Newquay on the rugged North Cornwall coast. Driving down the hill into the town, you’ll be greeted by a picturesque view and a friendly atmosphere in and out of the water.

With onsite parking, changing room facilities, a surf shop and small surf groups – you’re all set for the best surf lesson experience from start to finish. You’ll see your surfing improve in no time at all with us, as we always aim to tailor our surf lessons to the group’s specific surfing needs.
