WindSurfing School RYA approved

At Cornwall watersports, on pentewan sands beach, we have over 35 years  experience in windsurfing. Be it teaching or building them,we are dedicated  to providing windsurfing lessons & windsurf hire at cornwall watersports, pentewan. Cornwall is  known as the UK’s top location for this sport  so  learn & progress with us. Instruction is provided using the latest equipment and at competitive prices. Pentewan in the past hosted several national events and the owner won the nationals on this beach on the board he built. His brother won the worlds on a board built by Bruce the previous year.

We are an an independent windsurf school that can offer small group tuition to a very high teaching standard. We have three simulators to learn on, again of our own design which are low so you dont hurt yourself falling off like some other simulator designs.  Our business is built largely on word of mouth & repeat students who love their first beginners lessons and keep coming back to us, using our windsurf hire scheme to practice the basics and then taking more lessons to move up through the various levels of windsurfing.

So people, get off those X boxes, wii’s and play Stations and come and have some real exhileration where you can, with practice, be skimming over the water at 25 to thirty knots ( now you are wondering what a ‘knot’ is, well, first lesson, 1 knot is 1.16MPH!) which is as fast as your averaage speed boat. Whats more it is all free!


Our beginners lessons will give you the skills & knowledge to enjoy windsurfing. Once you have completed your 2 x 3 hour sessions you are qualified enough to venture out on your own.
