Are you coming on holiday and are looking for surfboard and wetsuit hire in Cornwall so you can get in the water and try out surfing?Never tried surfing but want to see what all the amp is about? Surfing is one of the most popular sports in Cornwall and it is the perfect location for surfing, as it has many different beaches facing many different directions. So whatever the wind and swell direction, there is always a strong chance of finding a clean, fun wave.
At Down the Line Surf Co. we offer surfboard, bodyboard and wetsuit hire either by the day or for the week. Unlike some tourist orientated outlets, the products we use are top quality and suitable for all year round conditions.
The surfboards we have on offer range from 6 foot, (for the nippers in the family) all the way to 9ft longboards. If you are unsure of which board is best for you, all of our staff are experienced and will help you find the right board perfect for your size and ability. We import dedicated learning boards from Australia that are perfect for learning on but do not have the bulky sluggish feel that is common with hire or beginner surfboards. In fact if you go to the beach on a day when the waves are small, you will find most of our team here at Down the Line on the same boards because they catch waves real easy and also turn like a performance surfboard. Check them out….
Prices are :- Wetsuits – £7 a day or £40 for the week – Surfboards £15 a day or £70 for the week
We are located only 4mins drive from the beach, and we are always happy to tell you the best place to go surfing, depending on the conditions on the day.
There are lifeguard patrols on most of our beaches, so as long as you follow the beach guidelines on water safety you can enjoy your time in the water safely.
If you want to get the most of your water time, there are many surf schools in the area. We highly recommend Gwithian Academy of Surf as the best surf school in the area. All the surf instructors are ASI apprved, and it is run by a former British Junior Team coach.
So, there you have it…. The sun’s out, the surf’s pumping, what more could you ask for than a few days of fun in the sun in Cornwall. I have known people who have tried surfing for the first time on holiday and within two years they had sold their house and moved to Cornwall to be closer to the beach and are now surfing everyday if there’s waves. Who knows, it could happen to you! See you in the shop, or I’ll see you in the water.
