My 8 year old daughter has had lessons in Hayle, St. Ives, Dunbar, Lanzarotte and Coldingham. Gwithian Academy were easy to deal with and the instructor was very nice but I didn't feel that they were geared up for children where the other schools we've used have been . There was one instructor for a class of 6 adults and 1 child and I had to go in the water to help. Contrast this with St. Ives Surf School who had a class of 8 children with 3 instructors in the water. The walk from the shop to the beach is quite long and over a lot of rocks.
So the guys were really nice but if you're looking to get your child started surfing in this area I'd visit the guys in St. Ives.
