Why Choose Us

If you are allergic to built up areas or adrenaline fuelled surfing spots where each wave is heavily competed for and if you want to be guaranteed to find a way of enjoying the Cornish waters and coastline whatever the weather and whatever your age or ability, then Harlyn is one of your best bets.

The option of Paddleboarding on the nearby Camel Estuary if the surf is down, the idea of kayaking around the coves if your knees are tired, or the choice of a privately led coaching session by one of our elite trainers mean that there is plenty to choose from and it is not unusual that we can have up to 3 generations within one group activity.

The professional team, combined with a choice of 4 activities guarantees that whatever the weather, whatever your ability or level of quest for adrenaline, you will have fun! You will experience the thrill of being on the water, the beauty of the rugged Cornish coast, the serenity of being away from urbanisation and the safety of being in the hands of one of the most highly trained and experienced instructor team.

And when you are done for the day, paddle back to the beach, grab a cold drink (or a hot one in the colder months), relax and soak up the awe inspiring natural beauty and perhaps one of our legendary sunsets. See what people are saying.
