Shooting the action down on the water’s edge.

As you will tell, if you have seen our last few social media posts, we have a professional photographer working with us again this summer.

He will be available to shoot the action so you can purchase your favourite photos of yourselves.

If you would like to join in on the fun in the crystal waters of Sennen Cove, give us a call and we will book you in for your surf lessons at Cornwall’s premier surf school.


We’re back

Operating with a few changes; smaller groups, cleanliness improvements and all COVID-19 precautions carried out.

We’re stoked to be doing what we love again…


It is what it is

As the late afternoon sun does it’s worst on the Cove’s tarmac, everything is silent.

No business, no tourism, no road raged arguments on the notorious bend at the bottom of the hill which usually kick off at around this time…

All you’ll hear is the squawks of the sea gulls and the crashing of the empty waves below.

If you look up you’ll see the clearest of skies, I’ve not seen a single cloud all day.

Is this a result of only a limited amount of abuse of which we usually insist of inflicting in high doses to our planet on a daily basis ?

Never will you find such solace on Sennen’s cove and probably never in our lifetimes will we experience this disturbed solitude that is going on around the world right now.

For a minute, let’s stop moaning about the economy. We might not be earning much but then again we ain’t spending much.

Appreciate what we have, for when this blows over, perhaps we can pay more attention to our fellow earthlings, this wonderful planet and the joy it supplies us with.

Can’t wait to see you all back at Smart Surf School

Storm Refugees

The atrocities of the these big storms can mean for surf lesson cancellations as they render the surf conditions unsuitable for beginner surfers (as well as experts).

This is because surfing beaches receive big waves and strong winds that can disorganise the bay and create rip currents that can pull surfers out to sea, or ‘max out’ the beach so the waves are too big to navigate through.

That being said, big storms can generate enough swell to wrap around coastal corners to fire up unusual novelty waves which only break ‘once every blue moon’

Over the last couple of weeks, the locals have enjoyed exploring the south west’s nooks and crannies for these little sheltered corners that help us keep the stoke alive.

We’re pretty lucky to be situated at Lands End where we get a choice of coasts to chose from, to maximise our surfing options throughout the whole year.

While the Newlyn fisherman batten down the hatches, our coach, Sam Smart hops around in the harbour.
