Our Home

The Skindog Surf School is based at the Gone Feral shop next to the Phoenix pub at Watergate Bay near Newquay in Cornwall. We offer a full range of surf lessons from half or full days, group bookings, and Pro days with Ben Skinner himself!

We run surf lessons twice a day at 10am & 2pm, allowing you to choose when and how much you want to surf. Each surf lesson is 2 hours long, includes all equipment and is split between time on the beach learning skills and time in the water putting what you have learnt into practice. As all of our surf instructors are BSA qualified coaches, as well as experienced surfers, a lesson with Skindog’s surf school will do much more than simply get you on your feet. We offer the following packages:


Skindog Single Session

We want to get people surfing properly! With the guidance of one of our accomplished surf instructors you will be introduced to water safety, basic board control, and correct stance arming you with a great foundation in the sport of surfing. The lesson consists of time spent both on the beach and in the water with the highest level of coaching throughout.
Skindog single session 10am or 2pm, lasting 2 hours.
