Dan Joel's Surf School



 Everyone's gone surfin', surfin' USA Poldhu Cove !!

In 2011 Dan Joel held a surf school at our own little cove throughout the summer season. It proved to be a great sucess and many of our visitors whether they were adults or children either learnt to surf or improved their surfing skills thanks to Dan.

Last year as word spread about the surf school the classes quickly filled up so I thought that I would let everyone know that Dan will be back this year with an extended season.

If you are interested in surf school then it would be worth contacting Dan before your holiday to make secure a place.

Dan is a very experienced surfer and here he is in action in Mexico. WOW !!

Dan has written a short information sheet for you:-

 In 2011, after years of surfing professionally around the world, I decided to introduce my life’s passion, to newcomers by starting up my own surf school. I’m based at the beautiful National Trust beach of Poldhu (near Mullion, Cornwall) and I offer safe, relaxed and friendly surf tuition for adults and children alike at one of Cornwall’s most treasured beauty spots.

We had a great success rate last year with over 90% of clients standing and riding waves to the beach.  This year we are starting lessons in the Easter holidays and will be continuing until October. As long as you are reasonably confident in the water and are over 8 years old we can teach you to surf. There is no upper age limit and we also have experience of teaching disabled children and adults.


  • Lessons cost £25 for a 2 hour session (this includes wetsuit, surfboard and all necessary equipment)
  • We run a morning slot (10.30am) and an afternoon slot (2.00pm) and meet next to the Poldhu Beach Café.

Surfing is an amazing experience which you will remember forever – all you have to do now is “give it a go!”
