Award winning surf school, shop and travel company. Global Boarders was formed in 2006 with a vision of providing high level surf provision to members of the local community as well as tourists visiting the area during the summer period and school breaks. We cater for beginner, improver and advanced surf coaching year round and pride ourselves on delivering expert professional surf tuition to all our customers who put on the rash vest and our committed approach to service is, in our opinion, without parallel.

We are constantly working towards new innovative techniques to help improve not only our surf coaching but to provide our clients with the ultimate experience ensuring that no detail is overlooked.

New for 2016 is our bespoke surf shop located in Penzance.

I only had a few days in Cornwall either side of Christmas and the guys at Global Boarders were fantastic in fitting me in for two private lessons. Being a 6 foot 1, 40 yr old guy who's struggled in past surfing lessons to pick up the technique around standing up I really benefited from their patience in teaching me... More

My 12 year old daughter wanted to start surfing when we moved to Cornwall in July so after a lot of research and emails I decided to choose Global Boarders. I initially booked a weeks worth of lessons and because of illness and work schedules had to change some days at short notice, they were extremely helpful and changed her... More

We have Global Surfers since our kids were little. They thought them how to surf and now they teach them how to progress safely. The older the kids are the further they go, so they need more guidance on safety. These tutors are top notch and also really friendly, considerate and fun.

Global boarders use a combination of experienced instructors and younger teens who are themselves strong local surfers. This works really well especially for youngsters like my 9yr old boy who idolised the super patient 14yr old who took him under his wing Great team - Well Organised with good advice on what to bring etc etc. Would use again although...

We booked 3 mornings of lessons for 3 young people (17, 19 & 22) in early September. The booking process was remarkably easy and efficient and I received a text each evening to confirm the venue and time for the next day. It is a very professional organisation. We had hoped to surf at Praa Sands but the winds and... More

These guys really went out of their way to arrange a lesson with my daughter (17) for her birthday. We have all had a few lessons with them over the last year (me, and my 2 daughters who are 10 and 17 and had never surfed before!) or so and always had loads of fun, as well as feeling like... More

Never having surfed I wanted an intense couple of sessions to give me the basics to go out alone and practise confidentiality. Charlotte and David my instructors at Global Surfers did just this. Awesome!!! Steve and Chris organising my lessons from the beginning were the professionals in which I didn't expect to meet through surfing (Yeah man style of living... More
