Owner description: Thank you for checking us out More of a lifestyle than a business. On the beach Since the year 2K, the Smart Surf School is ran by a local family who are highly experienced surf instructors, ex Sennen beach lifeguards and British professional surfers (including a British champion) We have 'Dude' and 'Dudette' surf coaches and cater for all abilities, young and old ! Please visit our website to find out why 'Smart' people choose Smart Surf School.. Aloha

I cannot recommend this surf school highly enough. Sam is a great surfer and a fantastic instructor. Learning from Sam is a real experience. It's clear he loves what he does and invests heavily in his students - something you just won't get from your average instructor. I spent 5 days one on one improving my technique with Sam, and also had the pleasure of watching him teach my 5 year old son - who caught a wave during his first ever lesson and is now totally addicted. If you want to learn to surf head to Sennen and leave the rest up to Sam and his brothers. You couldn't be in safer hands.

Thank Charlie A

My girlfriend and I had a surf lesson with the Smart guys last summer. We had so much fun, and even managed to stand up during our first lesson! The beach is a beautiful spot, and the instructors were full of enthusiasm and knowledge, and we felt very safe in their hands. Looking forward to seeing them again!

Sam is an excellent, passionate teacher. We had five days of lessons and our surfing really progressed, helped by perfect learning waves and really good coaching. Looking forward to next year already.

Thank you for the review. Your enthusiasm throughout the week was inspirational. It was fun watching you all progress with each session and decreasing your board sizes by the end (Tom and Cha: fearless!) It will be great to see you all again and take your surfing to the next level. Thanks again from the team :)

Thank you Lisa for the lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your first surfing experience with us. You did especially well on your first day when the waves were breaking closer to the shore and you managed to stand up quick enough to get a nice ride. Hopefully you come back so we can show you our third day course. Thanks for the picture too !
