"My first time surfing!"

This was my first time travelling alone and the first time I've ever surfed properly. I was made very welcome when I arrived which was lovely. The breakfast was more than enough - you don't want a full English when you're about to have a surf lesson! The surfing was a great experience. Lou was extremely knowledgeable and super patient with me and the other girls. I felt that I learned loads and definitely improved over the 3 days I was there. The location of the lodge was excellent, a stone's throw away from Fistral Beach and the town. The beds were clean and comfy as were the bathroom facilities. Overall, this was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Thank you to Base Surf for your hospitality. I honestly can't fault anything and I will be back!

"Highly recommended!"

I stayed at base surf lodge with my 11 year old son, we had three lessons with Lou and she was absolutely fantastic, she managed to teach us to stand on the boards by the third day and we havent stopped talking about our surf holiday since. Lou and Rob are both really friendly and Lou is a great teacher. I really could not recommend Base Surf Camp enough if you are looking for a surf holiday in England.

"A lovely experience - hoping to return! "

Accommodation was cosy and kept very clean, and the communal areas provided a nice space to relax and chat to others. Surf lessons were really enjoyable and as a complete beginner I found I made great progress thanks to Lou's excellent tuition. I hope to come again for another 'surf and stay' package in the future!

"A treasure of adventures found in Cornwall "

Lou and Rob were magnificent hosts from the moment I booked my trip and even after I was back home. I am definitely coming back to this gem - I can not fault anything, the experience was unique and value for money. If you are looking for a place to stay and meet like- minded and awesome people BASE SURF LOGDE IS YOUR PLACE!

Also the fact Fistral beach was literally 5 mins away made things easier and accessible.

"Great short stay"

Lou, our instructor, was fantastic and patient. She was a great teacher and a wonderful host. The lodge is clean and in an ideal location.


from Germany, August 2019

The surf classes were really good and I feel like I learned a lot. While I was there we were a rather smaller group, which was great since Lou would tell us how to improved after every wave we caught. Lou made sure that we always knew where to catch good waves even if there were a lot of people in the water. The equipment was new and the accommodation was very nice. It felt more like a home for the week than a hostel. The hostel is located only a 5 Minute walk from Fistral Beach and there are some nice coastal walks around the area.
