Big Green Surf School is the sole activity provider on the stunning, National Trust managed, Crantock Beach in Cornwall. We provide expert tuition in surfing, bodyboarding & stand-up-paddleboarding to all abilities and would love the chance to work with your school.
SURFING – Surf lessons for all abilities from complete beginners up to competition level. Crantock has amazing waves without the crowds of nearby Newquay.
BODYBOARDING – Ideal for younger students or those less confident in the water. Often a first step towards stand-up surfing and very accessible for those with different needs.
STAND-UP-PADDLEBOARDING (SUP) – We offer enclosed water beginner sessions, technique coaching and coastal exploration as well as fun and games on our 10-person “Monster SUP”, all under the supervision of our incredible coaches.
BEACH SAFETY & AWARENESS – We provide dedicated, bespoke training and advice on key concepts that promote safety in a beach environment. We can introduce students to scientific principles that govern waves, current, sediment, tide and weather, linking in to National Curriculum objectives or lesson content provided by your school.
Experience & Education
We are proud to work with a lot of schools from all over the world, each with different requirements and preferences. From small groups of 10 students for an afternoon away from school, right up to groups in excess of 200 students on a dedicated activities week. We’ll customise a package to your requirements and aim to complement key concepts being taught in the classroom in-line with National Curriculum objectives if required.
Safety & Insurance
All staff hold full Beach Lifeguard Qualifications, nationally and internationally recognised coaching qualifications as well as DBS checks as a minimum. We conduct regular in-house training as well as enhanced training with the RNLI to ensure the safety of our clients.
Big Green Surf School is a National Trust authorised activity provider, accredited by Surfing England and holds a licence from AALA (Adventure Activities Licensing Authority).
All of our Risk-Assessments, EAPs & policies are available in PDF format to all schools and we hold insurances in excess of the standard requirement.
Special Needs & Disabilities
We have extensive experience working with students with a range of differing needs; including behavioural disorders, learning difficulties and physical disabilities. Our coaches are passionate about ensuring all students have the same opportunity to enjoy the ocean.
We look forward to hearing from you and helping to plan your school’s next adventure!
